I use kaspersky but it's kinda expensive.... the suite is 80 bucks but it doesn't miss anything the only downside is that it can get annoying with asking you whether to allow something to do this or that or not but I don't mind too much. If you're looking to go the free route I'd go with Avira or Avast! because they catch alot and are light on resources.

Uhm... who pays for stuff anymore?

troy, you can disable the access popups... and usually after about a week, the popups stop because by that time, all the programs that need internet access you would have permitted use.
