What AV are you using !?

Hello there !

I'm kinda curious what antivirus are you using on windows 7 (x64 preferably ).I tried MSSE but i keep getting some random big CPU usage by MsmpEng.exe from 5 to 5 minutes.I tried ESET Nod32 v4 but i really can't decide what AV to use still...so i want to see witch AV are you using,and maybe give a few tips so i can make a decision.
I'm only interested in Anti Virus'es not the whole packaged ( with firewall and stuff ).
Thanks.

MSE for me. No problems noticed on my 64-bit installs.

I use MSE as well without any issues. However, if you're seeking an alternative I highly recommend Avast above any of the other free ones.

An antivirus many don't like...

I have been using Norton Internet Security since Jan 2008 and now am on version 2010. I have always been satisfied with it's performance and have never had a problem. CPU usage is low and works completely in the background.

Did you use the 64-bit Windows 7 version of Microsoft Security Essentials? I don't have any problems with it, and I've been using it, since it's first official release.
