    MSE no reason to pay for anything else, it does a fine job.

    MSE here as well.

    Its quite efficient actually... no issues with 'cpu hogging' (nor have I ever experienced except perhaps on single core cpu's of older designs, but even then the impact was relatively minimal).

    MSE. It's cheap as free and does a good job.

    I use Windows Defender in Windows 8, which is MSE + Windows Defender (in previous Windows editions). It's confusing but works great. I use Malwarebytes as a secondary,however.

    This was just the information I was looking for, thanks! New computer expected soon and wanted to see what was being used out there.

    The lightest one I can find. Lately I've been switching between Avast! and MSE. Used Avira for ages, but got bored with commercials and bloat.

    Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2013. A good all rounder.

    People argue no point in buying an AV license. I disagree. It doesn't cost alot. The average guy on here probably spends more on beer in one week then I spent on it for a year :D
