    Eset NOD32 hands down.

    I've tried Avira AntiVir Premium and Personal both of which boggled my Eee PC. I also tried Avast! Home Edition and that was alright. It had a weird interface and again still slowed down my Eee PC.

    Well, I was basically running my notebook without an antivirus for a while until I realized that I should be protected; especially with all these floating virus popping out of now where (ex: Facebook). So I decided to try out ESET NOD32 trail version. Ran great and used up little memory and my CPU usage wasn't jumping when I opened up a basic application.

    I am really thinking about buying it now, especially for $30 (free shipping) deal at Newegg. :)

    I had NOD32 for 5 years and switched to Avira free and think the latter is up to doing the job. A couple things to note, if you find it troublesome, search how to disable the pop up ad during update, and schedule several daily updates as the default is only once per day, not automatic like NOD32.

    Can you disable the popups (advertisement) in Avira free version?
