Which is the Best Anti-Virus and Why?

Norton's good, but extremely heavy on resorces. if u have a computer with over 1 gb ram then u can go 4 it. else go for Kaspersky antivirus, it's light on resources and does blazing speed scans (it was even ranked as the best antivirus by a test by detecting over 97% of the viruses). However the Worst antivirus ever is Quickheal. That piece of crap could'nt even detect a single infection on my comp. Later when i switched to kaspersky i discovered that i had 432 infections which quickheal didi not detect.

the best anti-virus according to me is NOD32 it is really very lite in the sense that it consumes very low system resources so you need not to worry about the speed and performance of your computer. if we check the reviews of various technical sites on it than the top most is bitdefender, second is kaspresky and the third is NOD32 so you see it is already in the list of the top 3 tools and the reason of being it at number 3 is only that it is a little difficult to be used by layman. but according to me if you can use mylot than you are not a layman atleast and you know how to operate computer so nod32 is for you on the other hand norton and avg and others are far behind or they don't even stand in the race they consume hell lot of computer resources, their updates are not frequently available. the only thing which is keeping them in and people are using them is rat race

there is nothing called BEST. it depends on the configuration of your computer. so one may be best for me but doesn't really work for you. generally, NORTON, QUICKHEAL, MCAFEE are good. if you want to go for free softwares you can try LAVASOFT ADAWARE SE, ZONEALARM. download these from softpedia.com or dowmload.com. make sure to protect your computer with a licensed version of antivirus software first. good luck
