    I'd say Nod32. I've never had any problems with it, their support is pretty damn awesome, its light on your system, but most importantly its detection is incredible.

    If you want a bargain - have a look at a-squared - you can get a free one year licence (saving $40) - see here for details https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=215147

    a-squared is an anti malware, but you can select the option to install the beta (which is working fine for me) which includes a full AV engine from ikarus - so ita effectively a full AV and AM for free!

    Download bitdefender free AV (scan only I think its V10), so you can run a disk scan before backup

    @jmonge.I think you have a darn good setup.IMO I think if any thing breaks through your defenses its going to be something pretty nasty, not your little kittie type virus/malware.I would just tweak your exsisting security as much as possiable like kees and aigle did with DW/GW.

    You R welcome,Of course its just my opinion but after seeing some testing that aigle did with DW/GW sanboxie and so fourth these programs did very Well with if I am not mistaken default settings. I can only imagine the tweaking some things can only harden the security more.

    Who cares
    Kaspersky 2009. Set to automatic mode, no popups, no worries. Excellent detection and removal. Light and fast. Customer support either via email or forum fast and efficient. And you never risk that a virus will damage it, because differently from some avs with supposed better detection, it does really have a self protection module.You may want to add SUPERAnti spyware as on demand scanner, which also is fast, efficient and has an excellent support too.

    Hi

    Does it have a lot of FPs? In AV-test tests, they always seem to get quite a few.

    Thanks
