Does anyone have advice or experience with security software and how it interacts or interferes with ProSeries. Specifically, I am most interested in Kaspersky, Bitdefender, or Avast.
I also use Norton, as it is regarded as one of the top Security software out there. Norton also gives you a double firewall. See this link for Norton vs ESET:

As for which security software is best, that's sometimes a matter of perspective and it often depends on the user's technical knowledge, as some offer more finite control than others, which novices may not want to tinker with. In terms of reliability and robustness, you may like to refer to the industry-recognized test results from AV-Test: https://www.av-test.org/en/?r=1
