I'll be using Norton 360 2010 as I got it free through work.

But for now, nothing.

well not sure if i said this before, but i was 2009 nis just upgraded to 2010.

As usual it runs very light / smooth. Think a lot of people who have a bad taste in there mouth from previous nortons should at least give the trial a shot. It is so light.

Microsoft Security Essentials here. It's what AV should be, free with no ads and very little resource use. I have to hand it to MS they did a great job with the, been using MSE for months since the beta. Won't ever pay for AV software or use another free version again.

I have no idea why someone would pay for a home antivirus solution. Makes no sense to me with the good free ones out there.

I installed MSE on 3 computers today after removing AVG Free and what a difference! I didn't realize that AVG used so many resources. Quicker start at desktop and such, mainly on my wife's and parent's computer, but could tell slightly on mine even. MSE is great so far! Sorry, AVG, you're outta here!!

Nothing beats my brain. The best antivirus ever! 100% success rate within last 10 years of using it to protect my PCs.

Doesn't your brain get dusty when you rub it all over your PC?
