    Go get AVG Free...good enough for most people at no cost.

    Less on system resource usage.

    BTW, AVG free is fast enough too.

    achalk, How do you like no when spyware or a keylogger comes on your pc, and what date would you like set the date back up?

    I use nod 32, but on other pc's norton is set up, because my family needs extra firewall and all that.

    I'm currently running under XP..
    I'm using Antivir FREE version...so far so good..
    To get more from Free Version, you need to configure the settings like high level detection, scanning all file types, etc..:D

    I'm using AVG free. Maybe not the best, but I'm satisfied with it.

    I've used ESET's NOD32 for more than 7 years now and haven't seen a real threat, highly recommended.
    Be aware that its only an Antivirus, without firewall and other stuff.. if you want a good firewall in combination with it, light and secure try sygate.

    At the moment I'm using ESS(Eset Smart Security) which is still not officially released, but it should be released pretty soon as its already in RC1 phase. I haven't seen any serious bugs while I was testing even the ALPHA and BETA versions, so I guess it would be a nice av security product. ESS contains antivirus firewall and some antispam protections. If you can wait for a month or two for ess to be released, I think you won't be disappointed.

    NOD32 is good. Kaspersky is user friendly ;) Both are good in my opinion..
