Currently I get McAfee enterprise 8.5 free from my school. Is that the best choice for antivirus or should I instead use something like Avast! or Avivra AntiVir? The reason I ask is that I have found 10 infections on my computer that McAfee completely passed over. :thumbsup:

Somewhat difficult to give a straight answer to this question. Some AV's work better on some systems than others. That said no one AV will get it all.

You should keep one AV and Firewall + several layers of antispyware. Also you can run the free on line scan of another product for more protection. Please look here for some selections..Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps
