What Anti-Virus should I install on Win7?

I have been using AVG on WinXP, but since I am switching to Win7, I guess I would try another one... or perhaps stick with the same??? What do you suggest...

Thanks to the community!

there are many threads on this topic in the 'system security' part of the forums.

a lot comes down to personal choice.

i like kaspersky 2010, other people prefer different software.

I use AVG, and I haven't ever had a virus on my vista or my win7, but maybe I'm just good about what I download.
