antivirus can only do so much, if you use it in combination with other programs (ccleaner, malwarebytes, etc) you can keep things working.


I personally have used Avast Free edition (never paid for antivirus in my life) and as soon as I see symptoms of  virus I run a manual deep scan and run malwarebytes to get rid of any bad stuff.


You have to keep an eye on things as well as run antivirus, also downloading keygen's and allowing them to run as exceptions in the antivirus can be the cause of many problems.

You ask a common question for which you will receive varying opinions and recommendations. There is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone and there is no single best anti-virus.
