Default Favorite AntiVirus software?

What is your favorite antivirus software?

I like Avast AntiVirus. Easy to Use and it actually works unlike Norton.

i am with you on that ziggy... Anything I can get for free and works better than most purchased ones....well that's for me.
Started with norton/symantic and it was so proprietary it took 22 pages of written instructions to get it all out of my computer.
McAfee was the next logical choice and it worked great till I switched to ATI graphics and there was so much conflicting that I was going nuts
*****note**** before you go off on me here
please realize that this was almost4 years ago when I went ot AVG and I know that norton & mcafee have both been through the changes It is just why should I change If what I have going works just peachy.

I don't usually post in these which is better posts.

I use Norton's AV Pro 2004 on my Win XP 32 bit box, and Avast 64 bit on My Win XP x64bit box because Norton AV would not install on it.

Avast link http://www.avast.com/eng/x64.html

Definitely Norton Anti-virus. It isn't bloated like McAfee.

I also like Fix-It Utilities Anti-Virus.
