there is no single product which does it all in PC security. You should ideally have at least a Firewall which controls both incoming and outgoing data and an Anti-Virus. Then you should install anti -malware scanners such as Superantispyware and Malwarebytes preferably to run as on demand rather than real time. A very good program which runs unobtrusively in the background is Spyware Blaster. For internet browsing you should preferably use Mozilla Firefox with the Web of Trust, No-Scripts and Ad-Block Plus add-ons for safe browsing only using Internet Explorer for Windows updates. You will find lots of info at the following link but especially the security section which is up to date and gives the top ten in each category based on readers reviews. There are also links to the downloads and they are all free programs as well. A site I find is safe for downloads is File Hippo.
