One of the most common questions after we perform a virus removal is, what's the best anti-virus I can use so this won't happen again? The honest answer is nothing. This is because there is now anti-virus or anti-malware that will 100% keep you from being re-infected. No anti-virus / anti-malware can protect you against yourself.

It's still early, but if they can continue the trend McAfee might be at number 1 in the near future.
