I use antivir from antivir.de, a german company. Trust the germans to be thorough. It has helped me from a reinstall, once, I got infected even though I had a firewall, and I do not generally install software from unknown sources.

Previously I was using Norton AntiVirus but it wasn't very good because my computer got infected, twice. Then I switched to AVG and since then it has really been working really well. I think most of people consider that AVG's free edition is better than Norton's paid edition. As far as firewall is concerned, I had windows in-built firewall but it wasn't reliable so now I have Zonealarm firewall which gives you more control over your PC.

Try Avast (www.avast.com). The best in my opinion. Free, auto-update, real time scan, high detection rate. Norton it's too heavy, too many problems... Bye

I am using Nod32.Compare to other antivirus,the system requirement is very less for this antivirus.Nortan and Macafee require more memory.
