Hepatitus A, huh?.....damnit!
If you read all the reviews, and there a lot of them, the best antivirus with the most positive feedback seems to be "nod32". It has the most passed ICSA certifications than any other antivirus. As well as that it only has a 10mb memory footprint, where as norton has a 22mb one, meaning it uses less ram and system resources.
