I feel dumb asking for a recommendation for an Anti-Virus software but I am going to do it just the same.  I am a novice and if I do a clean reinstall on Win7 64 bit I would like to start out with some Anti-Virus software that other have used with good success.

 

Free stuff or buy?

 

Any input highly appreciated.

 

Thanks

You ask a question that we get asked many times. Due to that fact our very own quietman7 has created a pinned topic covering that for you: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/407147/answers-to-common-security-questions-best-practices/#entry2316629

I excerpted the specific information about AV software in the link. However that whole thread is excellent material.

I assumed that this is a frequent question and I apologize that I didn't find it on my own. I did try but didn't find it.

Many thanks.

Glad you find value in that. You're welcome on behalf of the Bleeping Computer community.
