    I've had good luck with the Norton Security Premium (was "Norton 360". I bought the license for multiple devices... you can install it on up to 10 devices - mobile phones, tablets and computers. I have our iPhones, iPads and two computers protected. Doesn't seem to slow them down, scanning is done in the background. I think it was just under $120 for two years/10 devices and does more than just antivirus.
    Good luck, but definitely get something soon.

    I have worked in the I.T field for over 25 years now. I am a Network Engineer now and have worked with Desktops, Servers, Network Equipment, etc... The two best ones you can run are believe it or not Microsoft Windows Defender or AVG.
