@agent47, I edited your post and poll to make it more specific.

I'm using Kaspersky Internet Security 2010. ESET and Kaspersky are probably the two best security products I've seen.

I'm using AVG on my machine. I've installed it on many a machine for family and friends and only have had one problem with a registry key when updating from an old version which was promptly fixed

I use Norton 2010. I used to hate Norton but I personally think they have gotten a little bit better.

Avast! and Avira.

And IŽm still wondering why AVG is still the no. 1 free AV.
Avast, Panda and Avira are all better.

Yes. Actually Avira is adware Big Grin You can disable the splash screen and the popups. Google a bit and youŽll find it (fix depends on your OS, so I canŽt link you directly to the solution). It will involve some regediting, I hope you are comfortable with that.

You have to add "/nosplash" to the RUN key of Avira (which reads something like ""C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\avgnt.exe" /min" and you wll have to create a policy that forbids avnotify.exe to run (the adware).

For free, it's hard to beat Microsoft Security Essentials.

I use Avast. It's the top ranked antivirus program right now isn't it?

It caught like 80% of all the viruses they threw at it. Norton only caught about 50%

Well I am using Avira Antivirus software from last three years. I like its all of the features too much. I also like its scanning system also. Up till now I am using its trial version that is downloaded from net. But now I am planning to purchase its license version.

There's actually a free version of Avira, why are you using the trial?

I used to use AVG, but it started acting more like a virus than an anti-virus... it wouldn't let you disable it, even if you wanted/needed to, without runaround, and you couldn't end it through the process manager because it would reset itself, even though sometimes, it would completely interfrere with something I was doing, or slow the computer down in general.

Now, I use Avira, and there's no problems so far!

Gosh, its been about 6 months since I last used an antivirus (VIPRE).

I've been using MBAM Pro as a final defense in case I screw up, but I haven't yet. Bow or Thanks

I used to use AVG until I got a NASTY little virus that it never saw. Used to use McAfee after AVG but same problem. It let a Trojan through! Now I use Avast and Avira together as they are compatible with each other. I have never had a problem since. 6 years running with no problems.
