This is an opinion question, If 100 people answer, you may get 100 different answers. It can be Norton, AVG, NOD32, KAV, avast!, AntiVir, McAfee or a hundred others. They are all good. Just use the one that works best for YOU. BTW, I never heard of the one you are using, escan??

I use Norton (Symantec) because it has never failed me in 10 years. It is NOT free though.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
