Yeah, I was using AVG Free until I found NOD32. One good thing about NOD32 is that it will block viruses before they even get into your system, unlike a lot of other anti-virus programs that alert you after you've been infected. I have it set to terminate the connection and alert me whenever I'm at risk of getting a virus.

I hear and read a lot of different opinions on which is the best AV solution.

A lot of them are not based upon facts.

There is an anti-virus products comparative link here

Hmmm, seems like NOD and avira PE are both equal with 53% to me
