    Kaspersky is hands down the best one out there. I have used them for 2 years now and never had any problems. It's not bloated like NortonsAV, stops so much from getting into your computer. Plus you can get it piratically free after rebates at Frys.

    Microsoft's Security Essentials works surprisingly well. Its light weight and free.

    AVG is the best under the overall criteria of 1-it works, 2-it's free, 3-it updates, and 4-little or no nagging about paid upgrades.

    Switched from using AVG free (for 4 years) to Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition since I can dl it from my employer for free. I dl'd it after my free trial of Norton expired on my new laptop, because I was surprised at how much less invasive Norton is now. Works well, doesn't hog resources or nag you anything like it used to. I had given ESET NOD32 a shot, but it was as invasive / resource hungry as Norton used to be.

    You can try Avira (Free or Pay Edition) + Malwarebytes + CCleaner.

    Kaspersky was the best in past times, it was the nightmare for hackers, but now i think its not the best, nod32 its very good too.

    I have used Avast on every computer I work on (and have recommended it to family and friends) for the past three years. Probably over 20 computers I know of running it. It is free (renew registration every year for free). They constantly update it.

    The best recommendation is performance...In those three years, NONE of these computers has EVER had a virus that has not been caught by Avast and EVERY one that has been caught has been removed without any problems.

    Eset Nod32...The BEST!!!

    I have used this antivirus for last 5 years. I have also tried all other well known antiviruses but ditched them in favour of ESET. Hustle free, light on resources and does what it is supposed to do.

    What a dumb statement :D So you really belive that AVAST can find any virus on your PC? On the dark side there is affiliate networks which update theirs malware every day. And know what? Once any popular Antivirus such Avast or DrWeb or Kaspersky stars recognize their software they update in a couple of hours and thats all. One of top SPAMHAUS spammers once told me if you want protect you computer don't turn it on :)

    I agree. Use avast for daily cleaning and then once a week use malawarebytes then you are good.

    I also used Advanced system care (free) to clean up bad files, bad registry and bad links.

    My opinion, the best is Kaspersky Internet Security 2010.

    KIS first, NOD second based on what the private packers atm can do.

    In case you do not know, you can buy tools that make viruses undetected at runtime for EVERY antivirus.

    My advice: Install KIS and pray you are not unlucky enough to get a Tesla infected file ;)

    At the moment i am using the new Microsoft Security Essentials which is actually not a bad product. It is free from MS to download and it updates.

    For free products other than the above i have been using AVG Free edition. I did change over to Avira earlier in the year after a recommendation however there were way too many pop-ups for my liking and went back to AVG.

    Paid i tend to put my clients on Trend Micro products.
