You will receive varying opinions and recommendations. My personal choice is ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus if choosing a paid for program as it leaves a small footprint...meaning it is not intrusive and does not utilize a lot of system resources.

I've run NOD32 on all of my personal computers and my business machines for 10 years now, and it's also what I normally suggest for my clients. I have it running on several client's servers, along with the Remote Administration software. Right now, BitDefender is getting very good reviews, but I like NOD32 for it's consistent performance over the years. They also provide prompt and competent tech support.

There are several labs which test the effectiveness of major anti-virus programs to include AV-Comparatives.org, Virus Bulletin Comparative Tests, AV-Test.org, NSS Labs Consumer Anti-Malware Products Group Test Report, etc. I cannot find any which have tested Protegent Antivirus.

That does not mean it's not good...just that I would be skeptical of any vendor not participating in comparative testing.
