KasperskyZoneAlarm
Versions:

Kaspersky Anti-virus 2014 - Includes standard antivirus and spyware detection of known threats along with proprietary technology for discovering new threats before they are well known. Antivirus 2014 also provides security against phishing techniques.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 - The Internet Security version improves on the Antivirus 2013 version by providing parental control options, a two way firewall, anti-spam, and an enhanced security environment for shopping and banking transactions.

Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security - PURE 3.0 improves on the Internet Security version by adding features such as file encryption, file shredding, scheduled backup, a password manager and PC optimizing. If you need to secure multiple devices you can upgrade to Kaspersky One Universal Security which does the same thing as PURE 3.0 but simply is used for managing multiple devices.
Versions:

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus 2013 - ZoneAlarm has gone to a free edition as their entry level product. The free version does have a lot of functionality though. It includes standard antivirus scans but also has a firewall, an anti-phishing toolbar, and file scanning on downloads.

ZoneAlarm Internet Security 2013 - Internet Security edition includes the same features of the Free Antivirus but with additional features including parental controls, a live chat support option and an increase in antivirus dictionary update speed (from 24 hours to 1 hour).

ZoneAlarm Extreme Security 2013 - Extreme Security includes the same features of Internet Security but also comes with a virtual browsing sandbox and a PC Tuneup option.
Strengths:

Tremendous proactive protection. Kaspersky has an outstanding record of identifying new forms of malware before they are known and recognized. Recently Kaspersky ranked #1 out of 17 different antivirus competitors at detecting unknown spyware via an independent study by AV Comparatives.
Kaspersky provides a keylogger defense mechanism called Safe Keyboard that launches when you interact with banks or payment websites to protect passwords when interacting with banks and online payments.
The System Watcher feature monitors your PC to detect dangerous behavior and allow you to undo or rollback most malicious actions.
Strengths:

Most free versions of antivirus do not come with a firewall and anti-phishing technologies. Those are both nice options to have.
ZoneAlarm Extreme Security has a virtual browsing sandbox which is a personal favorite of ours. We like antivirus solutions that provide a browsing experience where you can't mess up your system if you accidentally visit a malicious website. For this reason it's worth the upgrade.
Perhaps the most creative antivirus feature in the space, ZoneAlarm will monitor your credit score and alert you if there are changes to your credit files.
