    For those of you who dual boot into Windows 8.1, what is a very good anti-virus internet security program?

    Thanks!

    I don't know about Windows 8 but I have been using Norton Internet Security for many years.

    I just use the included Windows Defender, along with the above common sense of course.

    I have never used AV on Windows and have never had a virus.

    The built-in Windows Defender and some caution will stop the majority of threats. The ones they can't stop wouldn't be stopped by AV anyway.

    Built-in Windows defender and firewall, along with common sense and not installing Java will mitigate most threats.

    I use Avast, because of its sandboxing, plus it seems good at the anti-virus stuff.
