It doesn't necessarily need to get rid of it. I just need to be aware of it

Lol. There is not a all in one solution imo. Definitely get malwarebytes for malware and rootkits. Avast or bitdefender for everything else.

Microsoft Security Essentials works pretty well. I have yet to get a virus in the 3+ years that I've been using it, and neither have any of the people who I've installed it for.

I run MWB and SAS once or twice a month, and they have yet to pick up anything MSE has missed.

Bitdefender probably has the highest detection rates but Kaspersky is definitely a good choice too.

Don't use MSE. It's really one of the worst now.

Any google search would say it sucks.

Kaspersky have worked fine for me, I have it deploy on several companies. before I would get requests for support a few times each month because workers would get their machines infected, but since they started using kaspersky 3 years ago I have not had a single virus infection.

The great thing about it is that even if they try to do something that could infect the PC, it's blocked by kaspersky.

Well I just used Malwarebytes and avast. Nothing.

I've become strangely paranoid lately. I'm sure it's nothing
