Try using MicroWorld's eScan Anti-Virus. I was doubtful about it, but after using Norton, Symantec, Trend Micro and the likes I took a chance and using escan paid off. I have been living virus free for the past 1 year.

NOD32, easily for me. Previously (2004) had Norton systemworks full package, which consumed 100MB out of my 128MB RAM and windows had 27MB! Bought, installed and sold the same week. Awful unless you have huge excess resources. NOD32 ever since and has been a dream. Plus its £150 cheaper than Norton was! £23 per pc per year, can't moan at that for a very well maintained antivirus which is the only program in the world to have detected every virus thus far.

Free AV is only cheap until something goes wrong.

Simple best Anti Virus software is Kaspersky.

There is an anti-virus products comparative link here
Well you believe what you like, but the majority of CF members use NOD32 its very effective, AV are getting better by the day and so they should do, at the end of the day its down to personal preference.
