    NOD32 for me is the best, is the lightest on the resources is very friendly with other software, and have great detection rates and the serials are flyin on the net. but an free AV, Avast is no doubt the best also very light on resources and have with great tools as a Sandbox, etc. is very complete for free an AV and even more the some paid one.

      If you don't mind paying for 'em go for Norton 360/Kaspersky Internet Security/Eset Nod
      However if Free and Flexible is your forte
      go for the following
      Avira Antivir personal/ Avast Home
      Comodo Firewall/ Online Armor Firewall
      MalwareBytes Anti Malware + Emsisoft Anti Malware on demand scanner
      Winpatrol Free

        I personally think that Microsoft Security Essentials is all you need. Other free programs work fine as well for the most part (check out reviews to see what's good if you want to look around), but I would strongly discourage you from paying for anything.

            I'm using Mac OS X now with avast! in it.

            Previously I used Microsoft Security Essentials, which I believe is just too good!

              Most people have AVs they "like", but their opinion isn't based on any actual data.

              I suggest checking over the current test data here. Its also good to check older data to, in order to see which ones perform consistently.

              AV-Comparatives - Independent Tests of Anti-Virus Software - Welcome to AV-Comparatives.org


              A regular AV is also far from a good suite of protection. A program like Tea Timer or Win Patrol, which monitors critical resources in real time is essential for good protection. A software firewall (windows firewall sucks) that will monitor outbound connections is essential as well.

                      Personnaly I use Kaspersky Internet Security wich gives me 30 day trial before reset it again :D

                      But I think that Microsoft Security Essentials is enough for normal (non geek) ppl :)

                        I used to have avast installed into my PC. Nowadays my PC lives without an antivurus... I don't visit porn sites anymore!

                            I am using NOD32 and I'm completely satisfied - easy to work with, not heavy and works fine.

                              I've always been a fan of Kaspersky. I never had any problems using it so why change a running system :D

                              Norton was a ressource hog when I used it a few years ago.
                              That could have changed by now, of course. I haven't tried it since. :)
