If you're on Windows I would suggest password-protecting your admin-level accounts and giving your kids their own non-administrator user account.

Avast! free - I haven't had problems but then I guess my teenager doesn't click haphazardly on links.

Spyware blaster - this doesn't run on the background like other AV or Antispywares, but it updates the hosts file to restrict sites and I think it does a few security tweaks to supported web browsers.

Install Ad blockers to all web browsers.  If you can limit the kids account to disable installation of software that'll even be better.

What you guys use?

Teh kids PCs always have viruses, they click the sh!t on everything, coz their kids and don't know any better.  Their rigs have MS sec essentials but it seems not quite up to the job.  Any thoughts?

AV software would be rendered useless if the user disregards warnings (which kids usually do).

I've used MSSE on my nephews' and nieces' rigs for quite sometime now and I haven't heard any complaints from them since... I just configured it to disinfect and delete all levels of threats automatically.

Free? I use avast. It's been ok so far. Not too boated nor intrusive.

I also use Comodo firewall which informs me when something is trying to initiate inbound or outbound connections.

Used to stay with Windows Defender and the built in Windows security until a friend reported a cryptolocker incident
Now trying out Malwarebytes and followed cryptoprevent scripts to secure the system from attack (mahirap na madale while surfing pron)

Am still using Avira pro for the antivirus and Comodo for the firewall.
Recently and up to now, my Avira is not recognized by Windows 7 (got that flag thingy). I may have to reinstall Avira so Windows can see that it is there.
No, Avira is not in the Windows partner list - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/antivirus-partners#AVtabs=win7 .
My license expires in 2015 so am keeping Avira and will probably renew it again.

my license for eset smart security just expired.  i saw in datablitz that they sell kaspersky internet security with 2 activation codes (each code good for one year) for 1100 pesos. way cheaper than what i paid for eset.
it puzzles me how women seem so fragile but they can hurt men more than they realize it.

i will give you 2000 czech crowns...
