First of all, welcome to BC.
I use Avast (Free) and have had no problems, others speak highly of AVG (free) and MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials, also free).
Other things you should have are anti-malware software. You will already have Windows Defender, but you could consider either Super Anti-Spyware and /or Malwarebytes, both of which you can get free from BC.
Of course, the most important protector of your security on-line is you ! Don't click on links willy-nilly, and definitely not in e-mails unless you are certain you know who they are from. Remember, any e-mail that addresses you as 'Dear Customer' or 'Dear User' is not likely to be from your bank. After all, your bank does know your name, doesn't it ?

Thank you. And does it really matter which malware protection I download. I know a little about computers but I'm no tech wiz. I just wanna be as fully protected as I can be. I use the internet a lot lately for job searches and that can lead to a lot of sketchie sites.
