    AVG and Avast both are good Antivirus IMO. Both are free to use too.

    DON.

    I also like AVG before but it can't detect and remove all viruses. I only tried the free AVG, I haven't use the Business Security yet. Is there a big difference between using the Business Security? I have MCAFEE because it's taking a lot of time just scanning the HD

    I only tried using the trial version. Do kaspersky scans really that fast or because I'm only using a trial version?

    Trial version is as good as full, and yes both are equally fast. :)

    Avast gets my vote. Very frequently updated, free, doesn't kill system resources, and offers much more than most paid AV's (like setting a boot-time scan, before Windows loads viruses in the memory)

    Kaspersky is best paid antivirus.

    P.S -> Never use Norton, it does nothing but eat system resources.

    Ahh...talking about Norton, it only eats system resources but just about everything it can get, yes, even your valuable data and OS files.
