NOD32 is good, but I found ClamWin a much better one for open source. Really good AV.

This is a piece of software that i pay for, its cheap to start with at £46 for 3 yrs, well worth the money IMO.

Also worth mentioning that the smart security beta isnt fully functioning so its not protecting you properly. This is taken from eset site "The beta test version is a precursor of the final product without full functionality and documentation"

AVG 7.5 is great, very fast start-up and doesnt take up much memory

I wish I had known about NOD32 before I bought McAfee... of course, in those days I still didn't know anything really about any antivirus suites besides Norton and McAfee, so that is why I bought McAfee! It is the best of that very short list!

If you don't want to pay any money for an Antivirus then Avast and AVG are the two best free ones, but I think it is really worth investing in something better.
