There is no best antivirus software,i think only better one, paid software has more function and capability than free one, sometimes not like...virus is very cunning to escape from av nowadays,wondering the one you met is not a real one, maybe you could search more info to check out, found a site saying some info about the best antivirus software scam,you may read it and compare...good luck!

Oops, read the thread again! Run free version of MBAM don't accept the trial of the professional version. Update and run full scan.

I think Avast is the best and also the most used software worldwide, it has good reviews and a good rating

You have not told about your OS. have you heard/used some/any of them? Have you experienced any trouble? If you have already used netfilter you are ok, but probably you are already familiar with another one. Also there is no best antivirus. The meaning of best is not really clear: best means it has the best gui, it is the most effective, it is the most difficult to set up, it has the best support or? http://www.techyv.com/questions/what-best-antivirus if you are using Linux then no need any anti virus.
