I've been using Avast's free edition for several years. I think ESET is pretty popular on the forum though.

Since the Kaspersky fueled NSA data breach last year I have stayed as far away from them as possible.

But this is just me.

ESET and Malwarebytes Premium and now use a VPN. Also changed my EMAIL provider to Hushmail which is excellent. I was hacked through the Equifax breach last year and it was horrific.

I have been using Norton for some years now. Its good when your subscription is active, but if you forget to renew it then it has a funny way of reminding you.

Norton? No. Too big, too intrusive, too much hassle. But then again that's just the opinion of most gamers. Maybe I shouldn't generalize, but I, for one, am not a fan.

I have Avast on my Lenovo. I'm also looking for my iMac. It has been infected by virus.
