I just recently built a new PC, and I would like some recommendations on a good anti-virus, paid or unpaid. Anything that doesn't hassle me 24/7 and does its job well :)

I think Kaspersky would do fine for your new computer.

Windows Defender is just fine, really you don't need a anti virus if you take the right precautions. Have the right addons on your browser like an adblock, noscript, and BetterPrivacy-signed, so you can't get some mischievous malware while browsing the internet. One of the best things you can do is change your host file to block ads on your machine all together too. If you do this it blocks ads on any program that has ads in them like Skype. More can be found here: http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/

Don't download and run random .exe's from websites and if you want to download them in a VPS first and try them out first to see if their fine. If you are torrenting things make sure the torrent has a few comments on it first to make sure it's safe. Even with a anti virus you can still get virus and malware, your computer is only going to be as secure as long as your don't do stupid things.

yeah personally I would use www.malwarebytes.com for my anti-virus and I would use Windows Defender as my firewall if you're on Windows 10/8. For Windows XP or 7 I would use windows essentials as my firewall.

I use Microsoft Security essentials which I wouldn't recommend but it does the job, but I dual run Malware Bytes alongside it which I can vouch for 100%. It's great.

Avast + Malwarebytes are wonderful.

Avast premier (paid option) is pretty comprehensive. -- If you do not teach it how you'd like it to detect, it can be called "garbage" indeed.
It catches majority of unknowns before it can do damage -- Malwarebytes set up is very thorough also (lifetime I purchased)

Best sofware is Malwarebytes and Mcfee. Both at the same time :)
