    BTW: If I missed anything please point it out I'll edit it.

    Edit 1: Added Kaspersky.

    Mac's don't need anti-viruses.

    But on my gaming PC I use Avast!.
    What annoys me is "Avast! Virus data base has been updated!"
    That pops up every 5 minutes.
    Oh and add Kaspersky in your poll.

    I use AVG.

    This made me laugh. Macs can easily get viruses, it's just that no one cares enough about them to make one.

    AVG atm, my computer is long overdue for it's usual format/reinstall so when i get around to it i may stick Avast or Avira on instead as i have both of those running in various VMs i use.

    Kaspersky at the moment but I'm considering being a cheapskate and switching to MSE when the subscription expires next month.
