In my experiance it is not what AV you use, rather the user action that is the main culprit. I have used used all types of Free and Paid AV for long time and I don't remeber a single moment that my system got infected, except
1. I had my son use the system for 2 weeks and boom it was infested with multiple malwares.
2. Second time I'd my sister-in-law use it to finish her "project" for couple weeks and it was loaded with loads of crap.

I have used the system as they handed them for long, long time. If the user is going to visit questionable sites, download crap-wares and install all kinds of add-ins and toolbars, there is nothing under the sun than can protect the system.
