    NOD32 resident. F-Prot for Windows on demand. I also keep Mcafee stinger updated. And to top it off, I use Antidote Super Lite read only virus scanner using Kaspersky defs for one more opinion.

    NOD32, and NOD32 alone. No need for more when you use the best!

    Kaspersky 4.5 Personal Pro. I think it's the best for covering virii, worms, and trojans, all in one package.

    NOD32 and BOClean on two computers.

    F-Secure on the others. My ISP provides F-Secure free for 3 machines.

    I prefer the NOD beta with AH plus HTTP scanner and BOClean combination.

    NOD doesn't detect trojans too well, and I wouldn't trust detection of them based largely on heuristics.

    NOD32 for me as well, but with A Squared Free to back it up... :D

    EMachine W2646 is protected by Command AV and my old Compaq Persario is protected by Norton AV 2004, expires in less then 2 months and will not be renewed. Replacement may be eTrust EZ AntiVirus. Also BoClean on both. ;)

    I use F-Secure 5.41. Four scanners in one package: Orion, KAV, F-Prot for Windows and Dos. Fast updates. IMHO the best AV ever made.

    I currently use NOD32 (for almost two years now) on my 98SE box and XP box. I will be moving to KAV 4.5 personal on my XP box when my license for NOD32 is up unless there is major improvement in the NOD32 beta. I will put a free av on the 98SE box. At the moment I have no av on either box because I have so many problems with NOD32 beta and even the release version on XP. When I tested KAV 4.5 on my XP box for a month recently, I had NO problems at all and it didn't slow my box with settings at maximum. NOD32 HTTP scanner really slows you down and for some weird reason Eset thinks I should have TWO resident scanners. One is plenty and that one AMON has been neglected by Eset recently. NOD32 WAS a good av but that is no longer the case IMO.
