I personally use NOD32 and have yet to have an issue with it.

i've Avast! on my main rig and AVG Free on my noodling computer in the lounge.

ive yet to find a problem with either, however i had Kasperskey for a while (around a month, free trial) and thought it was very sleek and had a good virus database from what i know of it.

Norton 2011 is also *supposed* to be good, but ive never gotten on very well with Norton or Mcafee, they seemed to just let viruses in.

I suggest CCleaner and Malwarebytes. Ok, I know, neither are anti-virus applications in the traditional sense. I don't like using regular anti-virus software as it tends to slow the system down. Running a combination of CCleaner, Malwarebytes, and maybe Spybot as well does a pretty good job of keeping my PCs virus/malware free. You have to do it religiously, though...

I like Comodo Internet Security because of the fact that it will let you control everything you do... Block this through the firewall. Delete this/that if is infected. Very customizable.

I'm using Avast. It's free, light and does the job well. I use to use Norton, but it sucked up heaps of power...

Personally, I think buying an AV is pointless when you can just get a free one. If you know what you're doing then an AV isn't that necessary anyway.

Congratulations on your satisfaction with Avast
I recommend this to everyone. Been using it for a while now and I love it.
