tried F secure. seems to slow down internet due to some reasons. Also, takes up a lot of memory due to its more than 10 processes running all the time.

I like it, nothing to complain. I'm using F-Secure also on my Nokia N97 and N95.

Interesting poll. Windows Defender is essentially replaced by MSE, AVG is missing also.

I currently use Avast! Home Edition along with Comodo Firewall, Windows Defender, and Spybot Search & Destroy.

MSE looks good; I'm waiting to hear some info on how it compares to Avast; I'veb een hearing conflicting reports of which is better overall. ^_^

was using avast home edition but changed to bitdefender for a change and was shocked to see the that the firewall slowed down the internet download speed by almost 60%.....!!! quickly changed back to avast again....but by reading all the reviews seems like NOD32 is the best will give it a try.....

Told earlier I'm using F-Secure Antivirus. It's true it has a lot of processes running, in my machine just now 10 processes. But these processes are consuming quite a little of RAM and almost no CPU time.

Allowing Browsing Protection Toolbar slightly slows Firefox and IE down. Personally I don't use this toolbar, my tests show no difference FSAV installed or not.
