    Personally, I despise AVG - though everyone has their own opinions of programs... I recommend Nod32.

    Because Nod32 is the best AntiVirus on the market.
    Lets see... super low resource usage, high scan speed, excellent detection rates, frequent tiny AV definition updates, very low false positive scan rate, excellent herustic engine.

    I use the 2.7x AV currently, but 3.0's engine is supposed to be revamped, and integrated firewall of the security suite will probably grow into something great, knowing what Eset has done for the AV.

    See that hole in your wall?
    I use Avast personally, because of it's boot-time scanner.
    I don't let avast run in the background on my computer and only update and scan when I feel it's necessary.

    But I usually put AVG on relative, friend, and customer computers so they have the active/real-time scan thing.

    I don't like AVG. I installed it once, gosh, it was the WORST experience I have ever had. Let in loads of viruses, and the ironic thing is it wouldn't delete them!

    Tried Kaspersky, and boy, that is one heck of an AV. Wonderful detection, real-time defense, quarentining and deleting is a breeze, really, you can't go wrong with that. But it's paid, though.

    Never tried NOD32, but I'd go for it first than AVG.

    Personal opinion.
