    If you are letting one antivirus do all the work then Kaspersky is the best!but if you are more tech savy you would use multiple antivirus focusing on its best points!!

    In general multiple anti- virus is not a good idea. They get into each others way.

    There are 3 free anti-virus programs which are very popular (AVG, Avast, Avira). AVG has a slight advantage in that it does two important things (where the others do only one) checks e-mail and provides for scheduled scanning.

    I use Avast. The threat database is updated at least once a day.
