I should probably mention that while Bitdefender is good it was causing my WIndows 8 to freeze all the time so I had to install it. Others using Windows 8 may to get freezing too from it.

AVG has a history of deleting important system files. I'd recommend Avira and Avast. The free version of BitDefender needs some more time.

I like Avira, but is has this nag screen that comes up every now and then. Not a big issue, but some people might wanna note.

 

Meanwhile, Avast ftw.
