Microsoft Security Essentials, I have it running on 7 machines at home, I have installed it on family and friends computers and I recommand it to all my customers. I have been using Microsoft Security Essentials from day one and was a loyal Micro-Trend customer before that. Look at the reveiws online from different PC and techno mags and you will soon realize jusy how good Microsoft Security Essentials is.

AVG AntiVirus Pro [paid] used here on all laptops for lightness, fastness, efficiency, excellent support etc.

I've had plenty of RAM for many, many years. I haven't been concerned with keeping applications light weight.

With that said, I use MSE on my own computer, Trend at work and Avast on my wife's computer.
