Lucky,
I have personally tested several anti-viral tools like Norton's and McAfee and Sophos and others. They all work excellent and I can't put one above the other on virus detection.
The trick is that the definitions for the viruses has to be kept up-to-date.
I check for updates on a daily basis. If they have a new definition file, I install it on all the machines.
That's viruses/worms/trojans
As for hacking, you need to have a tool that will check to see if protocols are being accessed on your machine. I tend to like and recommend Network Flight Recorder's BackOfficer. It's inexpensive and highly effective.
You don't mention what the operating system is on your PC. Because you say PC, I assume that it's not Unix, Linux or Macintosh, so you must be running Windows.
Your Operating System needs to be just as up-to-date on patches, as your virus protection. AND your browser, probably Netscape or Internet Explorer, needs to have it's updates. As well, programs like Outlookhave patches because

All of my answer didn't fit: Here's the rest:

Your Operating System needs to be just as up-to-date on patches, as your virus protection. AND your browser, probably Netscape or Internet Explorer, needs to have it's updates. As well, programs like Outlook have patches because of their vulnerabilities.
No one quality brandname can offer you that service. Well, take that back, it's offered, but the initiative to look for those updates and patches for security need to come from you.
Personal use, or business use, it's the same. I hope that helps. If you want more info, feel free to email me.

For about $59.95 US, you can purchase Norton Internet Security from Symantec. You can get more info at www.symantec.com. This includes Norton Anti-Virus 2000 and a newer version of AtGuard firewall.

For personal use I would just go with the internet security from Norton. If you are in a business environment then Norton Corporate Enterprise Solution 7.x is a great choice. It will automatically check for your virus updates and distro them to all servers/workstations as well as update the actual software. Pricing varies depending on volume but you can get it from $20 - 50 per copy.

I would agree that the most important thing to do with antivirus software is to update the DAT files. As for security, I've found ZoneAlarm to be a very good program, it's available free for personal use from www.zonelabs.com and it's $19.95 for business use.
