    Right now:

    Avast Free
    Outpost Pro
    Webroot Beta

    They don't seem too bad together so far.

    I would be interested in your thoughts on EAM 6 after you've had a chance to use it for a bit.

    But that is not a bad thought at all perce. My perception is a lot of people posting on Forums should do that with their setups.

    after 1 day of use

    Emsisoft Anti Malware 6 Beta has many improvement,
    mostly on performance sector,
    increased boot speed and on demand scan speed, reduced cpu usage, reduced I/O disk usage

    the new rootkit scan is also a welcome additional.

    I will look further, but right now its like using EAM 5 with Turbo Charged Engine :D

    I would say Avast free with file shield, behavioral shield only plus the freebie PrevXSafeOnline from facebook (http://www.prevx.com/safebook.asp).

    Chrome is the safest browser IMO, add the plug-in McFee site Advisor for, add Norton DNS also (filters out bad sites on DNS servers of Norton)

    It's easy free and light
