    Well, to tell you the truth, you're going to get a different opinion form every person. Norton is APPARENTLY the best. But, i dunno

    Norton is junk... If you're willing to spend some cash, NOD32 is the way to go! I've heard Kaspersky is pretty good too. If you want to be a cheapskate like me look into one of the following:

    -Grisoft's AVG Free Edition (what I use on all my computers)
    -ClamWin (usually just keep in on a flash drive in case I need to scan a friend's computer or something; it's a front-end for ClamAV)
    -ALWIL's Avast! Home Edition (some friends of mine use it and they can't complain)
    -Avira's AntiVir (heard it was alright from a few people)

    The only reason people are saying AVG is because its free.

    But yall need to look at the comparatives.

    AVG is one of the worst at detecting viruses and such when put up against the types of AV's.

    Avast! and Nod32. Although i never used the latter before, but i am sure it is as good as Avast!.

    Ok your link sent me to a place where within the AV window I got a 404, what do you use? I did try and look around a little, seems kinda maybe not real world sort of bench marky! Why do you not like AVG or correct link please. I am interested in your info even though AVG has worked well for 7 months.
