    So far I am using the Antivir Antivirus. I have tried many others too. However, I find that most of the antivirus make your pc run very slow whereas Antivir is lighter. Also, the free version works fine for me.

    I use Avast! antivirus. It's free and I think it's one of the better ones anyway.

    McAffee and Norton are always overly strict, complaining about stupid stuff like Internet Explorer trying to access the Internet. Yes I know it's trying to access the Internet...I'm the one trying to access it. I also find them more resource demanding than Avast!.

    Plus, Avast! has a pirate voice setting. You can't go wrong with that.

    I use eset nod32 and I purchased it because I downloaded it and it was by far the fastest antivirus package I have seen.  Most antivirus software packages that I have used slow down the PC tremendously.  Eset has almost no lag.

    I use Norton on my computer and laptops at home. I've tried a few but find this one the most reliable and doesn't seem to make my programs run slow like some. I downloaded it.

    If I am going to pay for an antivirus software for a machine I will use the ESET Nod32 it is a great antivirus software.  But for free versions Free AVG is a great free anti virus software that works well.
