So I was wondering which is the best antivirus to have for the best performance, since the antivirus I was using Eset Nod32 was really affecting my fps and I had to unistall it since sometime it started updating or scanned while i was playing and it really chunked out a number of fps.

Try some of the following: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/246965-49-best-anti-virus-gaming

 

The best option is to disable it while playing

i found AVG to be best option (not the free edition). imo all others either offer increased protection at a huge cost of performance or are just simply inferior.

I use no antivirus.. my current installation has been antivirus, firewall and surfshield free for 15months and still no problems..

All of them are useless.. detection rate is really low and no much difference between a paid and free version, so what's the point? When I had one the only detections were files related to KMS, cracks and keygens.

As long as you download always from a reliable source, use a secure browser and don't go into certain sites and block certain ADs and Popups you're good to go.

Never had any problems with win 7 and viruses.

I don't use any antivirus too. Since I got this pc and installed windows 7 I never had any problems with viruses and never formatted the computer. I only update and scan the pc with windows defender when I remember that I did not scan the pc for a long time. Ofcourse beware what you download ...
