I find it hard to believe that Nod32 is not in the poll options, nor mentioned by any of the posters. The only reason that I'm not using it now, is because that I have a lifetime license for what I am using. This fact does not keep me from thinking about buying Nod32 again.

The only reason Mcafee is alive today is because of its business products that many company uses even today. Symantec and McAfee are world preferences for corporate firms. Symantec, on the other hand, has improved incredibly and I can 100% rely on Norton. But I will never let Mcafee in my pc.

False positives, low detection, poor heuristics, etc. are some of the negative points of McAfee. It simply "sucks". LOL.

I certainly do not disagree. McAfee will not be on my computer either.

I uninstalled F secure 2011 beta after few testing. Now downloading Norton 2011 beta.
I too use Avast 5 as my main AV backed up by Hitman Pro, MBAM and A-Squared free.
