    In the early part of this century, Trend Micro was the only anti-virus that actually seemed to work - it and NOD32 that is. But after 2007 all bets were off and it seemed non of the AVs I tried did there jobs anymore, except Avast.

It was so difficult I quit and went to Avast. Now it seems none of the AVs truly detect any of the best malware out there, so I settled on MBAM for now. As long as I keep everything totally updated, at least malware is unlikely to pwn my computer - I'm not even sure MBAM can help any better, but it is a lifetime license, so I'm sticking to it. They don't have their own browser, but they have a Chrome extension that seems to work pretty well so far.
