    Microsoft Forefront (free, from the SystemCenter eval CD), and the built-in Windows Defender in Vista/Win7. Works great, zero problems. Why bother with third party stuff that is either expensive (Kaspersky) or of dubious quality (AVG Free)

    You can run the kaspersky betas for free all year round, if i'm not mistaken.

    Your old beta key will be disabled once a new version is released however, forcing you to update to the newer beta.

    You can't claim you have 0 virii while using AVG, period.
    I installed Symantec corp after a user had been using AVG 8 for 2 years.

    Symantec found 10 trojans, and no they weren't in AVG's quarantine :P

    Looks like that was the cause of his victimisation via credit card fraud.

    Norton is a big No No in my books. I've had nothing buy trouble from that bloated mess of a program. ...AVG combined with spybot Search and Destroy is my award winning key combination to a clean pc :)

    I am with you on this bambi.
    Norton and McAfee are big No No's.
    Like you I use AVG.
    Like you I combine with other programs such as A Squared, SuperAntiSpyware and so on.

    I didn't say norton.
    I said Symantec corporate.

    Symantec is considerably better at detecting virii than Norton Home releases.

    EDIT: also, the 2 best anti-spyware apps are Lavasofts' Ad-aware and Spybot search and destroy.

    Scan your PC with your chosen anti-spyware/malware software (JUST scan, don't clean) and then scan it with these two.

    You'll consistantly see them detecting more.

    Eight years of using AVG Free on over 100 Windows computers, 98, 98SE, ME, 2000Pro, Xp, XP_Pro, etc, & now Win7. I won't say I have had any Virii, but I would say it's done it's job 98% of the time. I also use a combo of others, SpyBot, SpySweeper, Lavasoft, & recently MalWareBytes cleaned up a messy computer, somebody had accidentally infected.
