I have tried the following AV's;
Kaprasky For W7 Beta - Didn't like it, kept asking me about every little thing.
Norton Anti-Virus Gamer Edition - Was fairly light-weight and worked well.
McAfee - Was decent, wasn't picking up much.
OneCare - Was using a lot of my resources and didn't pick up much.
Panda - Was a resource hog, extended my 'boot up' time about 2 minutes. Asked me about every little thing.
AVG - Was light-weight and picked up some things.
Morro - By far my favorite, light-weight, picks up things none of the following picked up on my system, and doesn't take forever to load.
Morro wins. =D
Intel Celeron M 550 @ 2.19 GHz
512 MB DDR (max RAM for a budget Dell Inspiron 1000)
SIS m650 mobo/integrated gfx
4200 RPM 40GB HDD
It runs well and better than any other free antivirus I've tried on it, and it does not appear to have any affect on system performance. Overall I would give MSE a 10/10.

It is just a basic antivirus and even though it is not feature rich, it still does it's job well. It runs really light on system resources but of course when there is much RAM left, it takes up more than the required which is sensible. I rather it be like this cause at least it ain't bloated.
Now what we need is a Microsoft Internet Security free of charge with Anti-Spam, Super Firewall and Best Malware and Real Time Protection. Basically a replica of the best internet security found today except that it should be free. Then, there will be so much competition that other product makers will make even better products and as this goes on, consumers benefit more and more and virus makers will give up. I would love to see that day when Apple can no longer criticize Microsoft.
