AVG seems to work well for lots of users here so I would suggest you go with it.

Personally, I use Avast Anti Virus 4 - it has the added advantage that it scans files as they are read or created, without any seeming system slowdown.

I used NortonAV for several years but have been using AVG for two years with complete satisfaction - just ensure that you update it on a daily basis at present (there are numerous updates).

I've used AVG for a long time now. As long as you do regular updates you should have no problem. Why pay when you can get it for free!!!

AVG is the freebie for me.Highly recommended.

Just to give a balanced view -

Fully updated but still let in Sobig F so won't touch it with a barge pole now.

Have used it for over two years, never had a virus and think its the dogs bollocks

Pros and cons for both AVG will not scan ziped files and you have to remember to update it unless your computer is always on at the update time. personaly I like my NIS only £18 for a USA download and new spam spam filter is top notch.
