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.
GET YOUR TRIGGER ON! (This is my catch fraise)

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
