    Hard to say what the "best" is, but I've heard good things about Sophos, and it's free.

    I always put AVG on the Windows computers I work on.

    For my mac I just use it. I don't worry about getting infected.

    There has never been a virus in the wild that runs on Mac OS X. The handful of trojans that exist can be easily avoided with some education and common sense and care in what software you install:

    If you read reviews, past and current, you will find there really is no best.

    What you will find is that there are those, both paid for, and ones that offer free versions, that constantly rank in the top 5 to 10.

    Many will suggest giving several different ones a try. One at a time of course. See which one seems` to suit your PC\you the best.
