I am trying to find out which antivirus program to go with. I'm not worried about the cost but want to make sure that it is one of the best and that it doesn't slow my system down to a crawl. Any advise is welcomed. Thanks Matt

I've been recommending Avast! AV for years and I still do. There's a free version and a paid version, both provide identical protection but the paid version comes with some handy bonuses.
