BEST Anti-Virus for Windows 10 Pro ??

I have been using Norton Anti-Virus for 10 years and Norton Security the past 3 years !! I actually bought a 3-User pack on a Super Sale Price (from Norton). My Wife uses on and I have one "unused" !! Since I Upgraded to WINDOWS 10 PRO I find Norton is NOT "catching" everything !! I am also using Malwarebytes which has caught the "Babylon" Malware and removed all folders, files & registry entries. The NORTON SECURITY is just NOT "catching" many Virus's. It may be the setting ?? Can you suggest the BEST ANTI-VIRUS for my WINDOWS 10 PRO ?? THANKS !!

There is no such thing as 'Best Antivirus" first and foremost. No antivirus can catch everything. Also if you believe Norton is not "catching" everything then maybe you need to change your surfing habits. 99.9% of malware infections are user inflicted.

Babylon is a PUP, a potentially unwanted program.  Malwarebytes is much more aggressive in detecting PUPS than most antivirus products.  Almost all PUPs are installed by user consent (agreeing to the installation, whether intended or not).

@yasir: 

1. Babylon is not more than a flagged PUA, according to the above official security response. However, it was infamous and truly stubborn, as it could be aggressively promoted by some freeware. 

2. Personally, you talked BIG when it comes to MBAM. Again, Babylon is NOT Malware. For related info, you may read this wikipedia page and this article@ Symantec.

As to your statement "Malwarebytes (which) has (had) caught the "Babylon" Malware (PUP) and removed all folders, files & registry entries", MBMA (v2.2.1.1043) failed to detect Babylon 10 - ; in the meantime, I can get that done within 3 seconds.

Then, what version of Babylon were you referring to?
