    NOD32 (ESET Smart Security), the best antivirus, firewall, spyware, adware protector I have used. I've used Norton and AVG, AVG deleted my windows.exe file once and Norton is too easy to break through.

    Thanks for the reply Jenny. But can Kaspersky remove viruses from a seriously infected computer and restore it back to a healthy state? If not, then what software can do that?

    I prefer AVG paid. It's the best for speed and reliability.

    For me it's good old Norton. However it does slow the system considerably. But this is where my core 2 duo comes in handy.

    I've been using the AVG Free version for about 3 or 4 years now (personal PC not work) - and I've only once had a virus problem - and that was only because I ignored a warning.

    Other than that it's been working like a bomb. I'm not so sure about its ability to remove viruses from an already infected machine ... but I believe prevention is better than cure in any case.
