Windows 7: Suitable AntiVirus

Suitable AntiVirus

Hi,
I have Microsoft Security Essentials installed and i don't think it does a pretty good job in keeping my computer virus-free. So i wanted, free or paid anti-virus which:
-In your opinion very good, low memory footprint, low CPU usage.

What do you guys think about Auslogics Anti-Virus?


I'll take any opinions.

Thanks,
Alex.

PS: Please, don't just recommend anti-virus only. I want Firewall, Anti-Spyware, everything.

That seems hard to believe as its been receiving high marks in virus detection.

Thanks for the fast reply, but i have already tried AVG (Free and Pro) and it was good, but i really wanted to try something new. That, and i had poor experiences with AVG.

AlexRD,
I used Norton Enterprise Edition, I have used AVG and recently downloaded Avast and I have been very impressed, it is quick, uses low memory resource and it even loads a plug-in for MS Outlook Email and unloads it when you exit, there is a free and paid version.

I'm just tired of the false-negative (or is it positive) that i get often on my games.

Are your "games" infected then?

I use Norton Internet Security, it works very well, the firewall is awesome. But I bundle it with Spyware Doctor. Spyware Doctor has an incredible detection rate when scanning. Unfortunately it doesn't have its own firewall so you need your own.

This bundle stopped everything that was thrown at me. Also, the RAM usage is pretty low for both.

Some people recommend "ESET" or "Avast!".

I will give it a try, thanks. Oh, and does the paid version contains a firewall, anti-spyware, etc?

I don't know, i sure hope not, otherwise all of them would be infected.
Oh, and congratulations on your 2000th post :P

I'll give both of them a try. Thanks a lot!
PS: I didn't understand, in conjunction is there a firewall?
