Default What is a good antivirus/antispyware software for a laptop? - 11-21-2011, 12:34 PM

So recently i had to reformat my hard drive and i lost spyware doctor. Even though it was paid for and i can use the serial one more time i want to know if there are any other antivirus/antispyware softwares which may be better.

I Hate Norton, I use ESET NOD32 Smart Security, works well, low overhead, got good ratings too, google it

I like Norton. Norton Internet Security has all the protection features of N360 and costs less.

AVG has had too many "false positive" issues for me to recommend it.
