None, I hate security suites they always have too much bloatware and unnecessary features.
With modern Windows all any user needs is UAC, Windows Firewall and a light AV with a good backup program Windows Backup feature will do.
If that doesn't work then use a "Limited User Account" or learn how to control your online habits.

Thanks. :D

Why vote for Comodo when Avira in your signature? :confused:
Comodo has Default Deny Architecture and it can prevent %99,9 malwares from your system. Comodo is hard to use because it is working with its whitelisting, if it is not in whitelist even a safe application, Comodo will sandbox it and then user thinks it is blocked. He/she does not know how to maintain automatic sandbox. They said it is not user-friendly.
Lets come my status, I am using lots of unknown open-source apps and Comodo cannot whitelist them as fast as updates of unknown softwares. Avira is much friendlier against unknown apps, because he lets everything run in your PC :mad: You can be infected if you are not using your common sense. Comodo is not a my type of product nowadays.
I love Comodo, and I use Avira :)

Paid: Emsisoft, Free:Qihoo 360is 5.0.0.50000beta.:) Anyone who put all of they eggs in Microsoft basket is begging for trouble. Microsoft themselves does tell you to install a proper Anti-virus.
I have many customers who use Microsoft and never get any infections. Infections depends on the users actions not the product they decide to use since none of them will detect everything if there was a mega AV that used all AV engines.

Remember detection rate depends on the users own actions not the product.

Enjoy!! :D

I think of it as this: You can buy 3 pieces of cement (antivirus, firewall, backup) or buy a huge piece of cement. The huge piece costs more than 3 seperate pieces and also weighs more, calling for more money to transport it.

Amidst so many popular names in Security Suites, I feel like one of the few members in a community where all of my other neighbors have automatic garage doors, remote controlled/digital sound systems, are living in homes with transitional ambient lighting, and automatic sprinklers on a timer, ..in addition to the Jettson's Food-O-Matic dinners prepared by Rosie the Robot!:p:D
