For the last few years Bitdefender has been the reigning champion in the Anti-malware/Anti-Virus arena.

Their various offerings provide spectacular protection with minimal resource use, all for very reasonable prices.

They offer three primary packages, each with its own set of additional features, and they all come in single, multi-device, and multi-year offerings. They also have an unlimited device Family Pack and The Box, which is worth checking out if you've got a lot of "smart" devices such as TV's, gaming systems, and Blu-ray players.
