A simple solution can definitely work for me. I don't need many of the bells & whistles that are a part of Norton/Bitdefender/Kaspersky's premium security suites.Dr.web is a customizable av, with clean GUI and a good firewall.They have an active forum you can visit it,they don't have fancy features like safe money pass manager or game mod,its pure av
Emsisoft is another alternative.
Qihoo 360 won't find a place on my PCs for the same reason as Kaspersky. For that matter even though I have licenses to utility software published by a company from a particular country in NE Asia (hint: starts with C ) I chose to uninstall & stay far away after I noticed some funny network activity by a particular ET-phone-home kind of module. A refund request was turned down for vague reasons. The very same reasons are present on another so called "Canadian" utility software publisher's website. Hint: there was a give away of their utility software recently.
It's time to tread carefully.
