I use Avast, have not had a problem with it, I think it is about the best FREE AV.

I use AVG, but NOD32 seems the best from hear-say.

Amen. I put it on all my clients' computers...most of them previously had McAfee or Norton...and they both suck IMHO. I've found gazillions of viruses with avast! that McAfee and Norton didn't catch. avast! FTW in the FREE category.
