    Best antivirus ?

    I've been using Norton/Symantec as long as I've had a computer. I'm looking to switch after getting the "ransomware" FBI virus yesterday. I figured it out and fixed it, etc. But I would like to have something better.
    Even the fixes on the Symantec site were crappy. I can think of a lot better things to do with the little bit of time off I do have.
    Don't try to convert me to mac. I hate I-anything.

    I have been using avast with reasonable success. Best thing about it is it does not cause any lag like mccaffe and norton seem to.

    I have tried most of them in my former work as an IT manager. I think AVG free and Avast are the best out there right now. I'd probably give the nod to avast.

    I use Avast but have used AVG as well for some time, and fully endorse both.
