What's the best Anti-virus program?

Something that won't get in the way of gaming. Also, do you use malwarebytes?

I use Avira and it works OK, haven't had any issues.

I use avast and have never had it interfere with anything; you do need to manually disable the voice prompts/sounds and put it into silent mode though, then it's out of your way completely.

And yes, I use Malwarebytes Premium.

I use Avast and Malwarebytes. Best combination for me so far, and I've experimented with numerous types. Had Norton before but cancelled the subscription and uninstalled it.

Because Norton is one of the worst programs ever written.

Yeah, I didn't like it. It's overpriced and unnecessary. The combo I'm using now is much more resource friendly and doesn't cost anything. I only used Norton for a year, then when my bill came, I think it was like $70 for another year? I said forget it, and cancelled it the next day and downloaded the free stuff. Worked like a charm since.
