Windows 7: What's the Best Anti-virus?

Its nice to read that people have different ideas about these programs. I am using MSE after I tried Avira and AVG, I gave up trying other programs and switched to MSE. It doesn't take much power and I can smoothly use other heavy programs for editing pictures and movies.

VIPRE Home Premium doesn't even appear to be present due to how light that is on resources. I run video captures, full screen games, and other programs without any problems while the active protection I have to say has surpassed that of others.

Even with instant messaging on Windows Live or social networks the protection will kick right in if something is detected,

That comes as no surprize since Comodo has always had a good rep across the board. And you noticed that once your internet securiry was increased you were far less prone to all sorts of malwares as a result.

My favorite setup is MSE combined with MBAM free. Also with Windows Firewall enabled which that firewall blows anyway, but it's better than having suite's using up a lot of your resources.

I have Norton 360 or Norton Internet security running on the machines in my house, none of which get bogged down during scans. They have come a long way with their software. Kaspersky would be my second chose though, also heard and seen a lot of good things from them.

I've been using for some years Outpost Security Suite. It had its ups and downs, but now reached a mature state, has pretty much everything I need and is quite advanced in its feature set. They also have a free version of the suite, but I haven't used it.
