After spending full 4 days and about 5 separate anti virus programs to rid my work PC of a google-redirect virus,I am fed-up. I want to just buy ONE realtime program that will secure my PC WHILE I am browsing online without slowing down my browsing sessions too badly. With the 4 days productivity shot I could almost justify buying a Mac, but my company sells a Windows-based software package, so I am hesitant about totally chunking the PC altogether.
It seems that I end up using Malwarebytes about twice a month on my various computers, so I was going to just buy the full version of that, but lately that will only complete Full scans when I boot into safe mode for some reason. I have used Norton in the past with lackluster results. MS Security Essentials and AVG seem to be worthless against catching the "windows 7 Antivirus 2011" style viruses that I always seem to get.
Any recommendations? I am not expecting perfection on this, but there has to be SOMETHING out there better than all the stuff I usually use.
