      It sounds like you are asking for a recommendation for an anti-virus program.

      I like Avast!: http://www.avast.com/eng/programs.html - the Home Edition is free. This program combines anti-virus with anti-spyware and anti-rootkit protection.

      Keep checking back, other Forum members will have additional recommendations.

      Best of luck!

      Personally, I've used AVG for a long time and I quite like it.

      If you want a "payed for" security suite, I would without-doubt recommend CA Security Suite.

      It has Anti Virus, Anti Spyware, Personal Firewall, Anti Spam, Website Inspector, Parental Controls, and a Desktop Migrator.

      Im not sure how much it costs, but I wouldnt leave even if it is expensive.

        @Fahmeed: Just looked at your post again and it looks like you are most concerned about viruses entering through USB connections. I am unaware of any AV that is superior in that regard, but, you can help yourself by being very careful about what USB devices you allow to be connected to your system. ANY and ALL memory containing USB devices are potential sources of malware on your machine - flash drives, USB harddrives, MP3 players, etc.

        You should know that Advanced computer users may have scripts that run with an autorun on the USB that will copy your personal information but I wouldn't worry about this.
