    I just bought a brand new Asus EEE 1000HD (I love it) What do you guys suggest for a anti-virus program? Obviously its a budget computer so I need something that isn't going slow down my computer so much like McaFee does.

    If free, Avira
    If commercial, NOD32 or BitDefender.

    I use Avira on my netbook. Works well, the only nag is when it updates definitions, it throws a popup about how i should buy the other versions and not run the free.

    If paid, get Norton Internet Security 2009. It's one of the top now.

    Oh, and to all you Norton bashers out there, Norton slows down your computer now as little as NOD32 (very little slow down), according to AV-Comparisons, and it also catches 4% more viruses than NOD32.

    I think we have a winner.

    I'm just going to delete my other posts, I don't feel like arguing either.
