It's a common question but

The best antivirus continues to be you since most bad things ask you to install them.

There is no best since no all AV catches all things. That's why you're the best.

It Depends On So Many Things..

Your preferences, the types of websites and mail you use, plus whether you want to pay for it, or prefer free. I've found many of the free antivirus programs to be just as good at finding viruses, plus they don't drag down the machine as much as some of the big brand names. To start with, try visiting the thread at the top of this forum which gives a few free antivirus programs which are worth trying.. Try one. If you don't like it, try one of the other ones. Below is a link to some of those progams.

Expand the "FREE Anti Virus programs" topic:

Hope this helps.
