I have been using Avast Free but armed with a new computer I feel that I should purchase the best product on the market.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
“best” is subjective.
The most trustable ones are ones that would be open source. To take into account the previous history of most a/v programmers the openess of the source merits use before the software that hides what it’s doing.
I personally use clamAV. Free, open source. A good reliable engine that powers the backend of quite a few “professional” email solutions A/V activities. The lists of “fingerprints” seems well maintained, considering this is free.
For me it is only a formality however as I run an OS that isn’t likely to become exploited up to SYSTEM level privs from malicously crafted TrueType Fonts. That’s almost as funny as remote code execution via notepad.
