I've used ESET NOD32 Business Security before but too bad, i get infected with a virus and a spwware, that was very troublesome indeed. I couldn't see my hard drives and the admin privileges were blocked. Virus first attack the hard drives, deleting or changing settings to your computer.

Kaspersky - The kaspersky on my machine
The most annoying and resources taking antivirus I found is Norton. It is a useless anti-virus it doesnt block the latest viruses and also it slows down the system a lot. I found the antivir and Avast to be more effective and both take very low resources. I am using Kaspersky Internet Security though and have found it to be working as well.

I have used almost all anti-virus in the market. Some I kept for long, others were uninstalled right away. Kaspersky was uninstalled after 3 minutes, Norton worked for 1 year, Panda for half a year before uninstalled too. Now i have decided to try the free ones, and they prove better. They arent perfect (no anti-virus is perfect)but they work better than the commercial i have tried. And by the way, NOD 32 was out fast, because it is too slow at scanning. people have written good reviews for it, but what i know is it didnt work at my pc effectively. You canno expect every antivirus application to find all threats. Thats the sad thing about computer security

That's great if you've tried them all so that you can compare which AV is more effective. Some Anti-Virus is poor in detecting Real-Time, others are great in manual scanning. Each AV in the market today has some pros and cons.
