    On the laptop I use daily, Qihoo 360 Internet Security 2013.

    On my Windows 8 partition and on another laptop, Roboscan Internet Security. One is running the Pro version.

    I had problems with Qihoo slowing down my laptop on occasion, so I uninstalled it, but have just reinstalled it with BitDefender disabled for real-time protection, to see if its lighter.

    Also, I have found that on occasion that Roboscan can cause slow downs too.

    As I'm using multiple AVs it would be great if I could choose multiple options.;)

    WSA, Titanium, EAM, Avast & Eset.:)

    Avast! too for me. I have licenses for Eset, Bitdefender and also like them, but I always seem to come back to Avast! free.

    Still nothing, but it should be mentioned, that the shared second place from the previous poll actually belongs to None as well. Ignoring it will not change the fact. :)

    I use MS Security essential because it's free, lite, and I'm not bothered for money to renew my subscription. In my security setup, imaging and backup, using limited user accounts and the firewall all more important than the AV. In the last few years I've gotten something like 5 AV positives, all from files I shouldn't have downloaded in the first place.

    Eset of course. But Emsisoft version 8 has sneaked onto one of my machines. I am very impressed by version 8. Very good release, and i like that they don't give in for the pressure to add unnecessary tools, but instead is focused on better detection, lower system impact, etc. I think they did a wise choice to shift to the Bitdefender engine.

    I was temporarily using MSE at the time of the last poll but have since switched back to avast! free, my favorite for the past 8 years.

    looks like ESET and Avast are going head to head.
    personally I never really warmed up to either of them.
