I'm wrong, it's F-Secure being expensive.

I have been using Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 since Feb this year. I have had no problems it just does its thing in the back ground. So far I have been very impressed.

Yeah, I'm running Bitdefender and, just like you, I'm impressed. Liking it a lot so far, intuitive UI, low performance impact, gaming mode (gaming mode! ). Looks good for now.

Thanks for your input and feedback guys, it's very much appreciated.

I`ve been using bitdefender since jan 2013 and think its the best I have ever used and that's most of them.
depending on which version (there are several)it has some fantastic additions not normally found in other av packages.
such as:
1.a safe mode .Which restarts the pc and loads an ubunto scanning program which is easy to use(same as a rescue cd):
2.Disk clean.
3.defrag.
4.it runs in the background(auto pilot)or set to user you can customize it.
5.switches to game mode automatic or add specific games.

not trying to sell it. just try first.whats to loose before you pay out.
good luck topper.

you can trial it for 30 days I`m curently using there total security package.
the downside there support is a bit to be desired.
