I recommend Avast! antivirus.

Free (requires you to register once a year though)
Also light on resources and automatically updates itself. :)

Not much has changes Avira and AVG are still top notch, you'll be fine with either two.

I found these 'free' Anti-Virus/Spyware software absolutely incompetent and useless against latest and dangerous threats.

I can either recommend Kaspersky or NOD32 (ESET).

Same here...........

I run Kaspersky on 2 computers and BitDefender on the other one. They use very little of your system resources even while running a scan.

That's my fear - I used AVG up until 3 years ago when I moved to a paid sub with trend. never had an infection with AVG or Trend. things have moved on and that's why i posted the thread to get all POV.

Cheers for chippin' in all. ;)
