    What would be the best anti-virus software to match with Windows 8?

    It comes with a built-in antivirus which is fine for most users.

    You should be able to use anything, I have seen a lot of people using Norton 360 though.

    My personal favourite is ESET Smart Security. Though that's personal preference. As long as you go with one of the big boys (ESET, Norton, BitDefender, Kaspersky) you should be fine. They're all good, so its more a matter of taste than anything else.

    I have been using bitdefender for a couple of years now. Much less of a resource hog compared to Norton. You also don't have to worry about keeping an eye on how often it is doing system backups.

    For windows 8 you should use the Microsoft Windows Defender. It works and it is free. I mean what is better than free?
