Not using Windows is the best security

Windows is the most insecure system. It was never designed for use on the Internet or any public network.
If you want security get Linux or a Mac and run your legacy Windows apps via Virtualization. You can copy an existing Windows image and go!
If you are paying for Anti* software there is something wrong with the operating system you are using on the Internet. The solution is to get and use an OS that does not need the illusion of a janitor cleaning up AFTER it is already infected and calling that security. That's all that can ever be done with Windows
