Top AV Program Use Here in 'Seven'

I just completed a research on AV programs, and according to the most recent independent tests, Bit Defender finishes with the most accumulative points.
I'm curious to see what the top programs are by users here in 'Seven'.

I am making this a poll. According to the test data, I'm going to list the top 10 programs and include 'Other' in the poll in case you do not use any of the ones listed.

If you check 'other' please weigh in and tell us which program you use and your personal review of it.

I will kick it off and say that I have been using Avast Internet Security. I got a great 2 year deal for 3 machines and have had no problems. My subscription runs out in early 2014.

Thanks for participating,

Jack

I've tried most of the mainstream AV programs on the net and several of the commercial AV's. The only one that I felt didn't kill system performance was AVIRA. I still use AVIRA on my XP box, along with SAS and MBAM. I started using MSE with SAS/MBAM when I bought Windows 7 and it is nice, does not hog resources. I well start using MSE on my XP box when my AVIRA subscription is up next year. IMHO AVG, AVAST, Norton and McAfee are system killers.
