    Antivir because I am a little hard up for cash at the momento_O I use ClamAV as a backup scanner. Would like to use NOD32.

    Avast all the way, the only other alternative I would consider would be Anti Vir.

    My favorite is NOD32, but the new incoming KAV will be also great and for free the excellent avast! ;)

    NOD32 for real-time, McAfee for on-demand scanning of my pc. (Yeah, they appear to be playing nicely together, of course, one of them is always turned off!)

    I installed Norton Internet Security 2006 last night, and it is a very complete program. It was $75 well spent(well my mother-in-laws money well spent...it was a gift ;).

    Hmmm ... another AV poll.
    My vote goes again to AVG.
    Free of charge, automatic updating, automatic scanning, email-scanning.
    I only wished it was a little more silent, but any disturbing popup disappears automatically, which is a comfort.
    After six months using AVG, I ran the trials of NOD32 and KAV. No threats found either. Discipline also works. :)

    Using BitDefender 9 Standard at this time, so that is what I voted for. This could change at any time. For some reason, I can't seem to stay with any one AV for very long. :) I do like BD though, so maybe I stay with it for a while.

    CA's Etrust.

    Not because I have complete faith in it but because it seems less bloated than some others. Has minimal negative performance impact on some of my older systems.

    Too shy to go naked. :p

    Wow I'm impressed so many AV's represented in members choices. NOD32 resident & KAV 3.5 on demand, btw.

    Avast Home Edition serves me well, and also using several on-demand back-ups scanners... just in case. :D

    I've been using Kaspersky as my on access scanner for 8 years now and I also run Nod32 and Dr. Web as on demand.

    I am using Trend Micro's PC-cillin, and turn off all but the real-time virus scanning.
    http://www.trendmicro.com/en/products/desktop/pc-cillin/evaluate/overview.htm

    I have never really gotten my hands dirty as to what AV is the best. I did switch over this year to Trend Micro. I gave up Symantec’s offing after noticing it was severely reducing my Disk I/O. Trend Micro seemed to get a good review at CNET.
    http://reviews.cnet.com/Trend_Micro_PC_cillin_Internet_Security_2005/4505-3667_7-31162897.html

    I see many folks using the NOD32. I might play with this a bit. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

    NOD32, with no intention to change in the near future.
