I have been looking for a top quality Internet Total Security Product for 3 PC's but one for Windows 8 (Desktop)and two for Apple Computers (MacBook Pro & All-in-One Desktop). Any suggestions, please? Thank you.

Kind regards,

Don't think you will ever get total security for the internet. Apple products seem more secure than Windows' machines but are more expensive.

You have the usual of Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky etc, and now Avast Premier and many more.

I don't use any of them.

Norton do a rather expensive solution to cover 3 systems and a mix of Windows and Mac Norton.

There are other solutions.

Your going to be paying separately for windows and the macs.

Packages tend to be poor overall as one part is good, other parts not so good

i.e. AV good , firewall poor, antimalware bad, antispam good etc. and can often use so much resources they slow the machine.

I tend to go for separate programs that work together such as Avast Malwarebytes and ADWCleaner.

Thank you. I am already using Norton 360 for 'Windows' with desktop which expires in 19 days so I will plum for the Norton 360 'Multi-Device' suite. Your advice help much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Why don't you use the avast? Avast provide free anti-virus service, also you can subscribe its internet protection suit or pro version. Most important, it's effective and affordable.
