    Default So ... decent virus protection that isn't:

    McAffee (ewwww)
    Norton (ewwww on 'roids)
    Avast (someone has a conflict with Win8 )

    Webroot, Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, AVG just off the top of my pointy head. Some have free versions, but most are less than $25/yr.

    Thanks, will pass on to my cousin. Been using Avast for the last several years, got me lazy & I'm kinda out of the virus protection loop.

    I have had good luck with AVG and Malwarebytes over past 5 years. Less resource heavy than Norton and more effective than the Windows (MS made) antivirus. I use the free versions which enables real-time protection for AVG; but not for Malwarebytes unfortunately, but as AK said it's cheap. I just do a Malwarebytes scan at least once a week to make up for the deficiencies, and avoid pr0n on my computer...
