What's the best software to prevent malware infections? The best to detect infections? The best to eradicate them? The best single all-in-one product?

Wow . . . Is that ever a loaded question :)

I am going to give you a very unpopular answer - I kinda like a-squared.
It gets a lot of knocks for a high rate of false positives, but you'll get that with heuristic detections.

MBAM is excellent at removing active malware infections - it is one of the best in that regard, but it has its share of FPs..... Plus, since a lot of people follow stickie posts that tell them to "remove the baddies it finds," it can do some damage via FP (the atapi.sys fiasco, for example).
Still, MBAM is the best "remover," IMO - Warts and all.
