You should explain what exactly it is that you're planning to do with the anti-virus. Not all anti-virus are created equal, and depending on the application you have for it, some might be a better choice than others. Also, please take a moment to provide an overview of the features you are looking for. Give our members information they can use to provide you with a suggestion which isn't entirely subjective.
