The reason i put it here is because more people will notice it, security/hacking isnt the most popular place

I use AVG. I think the only main diff between pro and the free version is the built in firewall.

NOD32 for me. I hated norton/mcafee. Norton takes up tooo many resources and Mcafee alike.

Avira AntiVir.

And as u said this should be in the security section. People do visit there, not just as often but I'm sure u can wait for a day or two to get answer to a question like this.

AVG blows at detecting stuff. AntiVir owns in that position. It detects anything.

I say AntiVIr, but if you can get both then do so. Because they detect what each other misses. Kinda nice..
