As a network admin and certified in Comptia and windows administration I personally have found ESET smart security to do the job for me. I am an avid virus tester and have managed to save my butt many times with ESET. I have used in the past AVG, Avast, Norton, Mcafee, kaspersky(another favorite) and many more. But ESET has blown all of them out of the water by far.

I am always glad to give advice on Technology. Feel free to drop me a msg.

My top three worst antivirus solutions are, in ascending order:

3rd - McAffee

2nd - Norton

1st - Windows Defender in Vista.

The reason Vista is the top entry is because it once ran a scan, decided the entirety of System32 was an incredibly dangerous virus, and must be deleted. I said it could quarantine, because I figured it had found a virus within System32 and wasn't telling me the path, but after about 10 seconds of quarantining beginning, my laptop BlueScreened, rebooted, BlueScreened again, then restored System32.

I updated the laptop to Win7 after 48 hours, with MSE on it. (FYI, that broke after a while and so I got Avast!).

 

That's your problem with the Vista part. I've never had any problems with Windows Defender. I rarely use Anti-Virus, and I usually never get viruses. Scanned my laptop after two years, and I had maybe 4 viruses. But if I did have to vote on an Anti-Virus program, I would go with Avast! even though it talks.. It gets annoying when it does shit by itself. But the Windows Defender in Windows Vista is fine, my guess is that a virus infected Windows Defender and made it manually detect System32 as a virus.

Could be, could be. Or, a completely unrelated virus. Or, like, more or less anything.
