Hi, at this point of time, I am using avira antivir personal classic edition. This can be downloaded free at their official website at I have been using this software for over a longer period of time. Since using it, I have never experienced any problems at all with regards to the overall function and system performance of my machine. Otherwise, I am so impressed and satisfied with its performance. It udpates regularly and can be scheduled at your most convenient time. It is very light on resources and does not use a lot of memory. Hence, does not slow down your computer. It detects and deletes rootkits, worms, viruses, etc. Hope this would help. Have a great day!

I used to use norton antivirus but it started giving problem so i had to stop using antivirus i used ever is AVG-Antivirus. its more secure to use AVG although i also used Norton and Mcafee and many more. but now i am satisfied with the AVG antivirus. its absolutely free for home users and the updates are quite easily updated without so much of time. and it gives the high performance for my computer. Many a times when i am sharing something in my LAN, AVG immediately detects which type of virus is this and completey wipe out the viruses. So i would like to prefer AVG antivirus and also suggest you to use avg instead of any other antivirus.note even though we use latest and upgraded antivirus to protect our system sometimes our system get effected by latest viruses.

I like McAfee. It's not free, by any means, but I think it does the best job. I've gotten viruses while using Norton, so I'd steer clear of that one.
