    Avast real-time and Comodo AV on-demand

    Family computers use Shaw Secure (rebranded F-Secure Internet Security) and MSE.

    That's about it, if you don't count the cloud engines in HitmanPro and VirusTotal.

    Avast Free Edition, previously used Avira AntiVir Free on my other system but the false positives got out of control.
    I did try Panda Cloud Free for awhile but it also had too many false positives more than Avira did.
    However Panda Cloud has good potential for the future.
    Also tried MSE on both of my systems and it did very well except for extremely slow scanning.
    If Microsoft could fix that issue than it would be competitor to Avast.

    Now I used Avast Free on both of my systems.
    Doesn't slow down my systems, hardly ever get false positives and I never get infections.

    Thanks.:)

    I'm running Panda Cloud Pro. So far without any issues. Not one false positive yet.

    It's detection on the latest malware from "Malware Domain List" is very impressive. Not perfect of course but very strong. A lot of detections from the "Cloud Intelligence".

    I'm looking forward to it's future.

    Latest version of MSE is supposed to scan faster. At least that's what I read in another thread here. Also I wonder if a distinction should have been made between Panda and Panda Cloud or do they not sell a traditional stand alone anymore?

    Avast Free again after a brief flirt with MSE and a laughable experience with Panda Cloud Free...come now, an OS system file being flagged as a directory deleting trojan? Right. Among other issues I had with it.

    Norton for me. Not necessarily my favourite AV, but as a suite in NIS2010 I find it's not let anything through on my machine since using it. Very impressive. If I get bored with NIS I'll definitely use MSE.

    my sig for performance. My favorite suite for stability and performance nis 2010, also like mse. Everything i used to love has turned into bloated junk that's slightly better than having a full virus infection.
