    Very well put Randy. But after 60 the hurting isn’t the same! Nice to be a member (newbie) Ops oldie. Norton 360 is my current program? so far so good. The only draw back so far.. Keeps asking do you want to RENEW?

    This was really only needed in versions prior to 7.0 (like 2008).

    I chose the first time AV microsoft security essential becuase i found it very good concerning protection, and it can get 98% viruses.

    Microsoft Security Essentials is best for home users.

    Not nessecarily, though it is arguably the most user friendly. The "best" choice for home users is the one that works best for you and has good detection rates/realtime.

    I'm using Kaspersky. The Geek Squad recommended it when I bought my new HP at Best Buy. I'm a non-techie, so I took their advice.

    Comodo Antivirus + Firewall Free Edition. Since Sygate Personal Firewall not compatible with win7, and windows firewall not even better then sygate personal firewall, i choose comodo.

    What about BitDefender Total Security 2011?

    I know it may be slightly more CPU intensive, but it is the best out there (for me). Catches everything in my torrents (it has a add in on uTorrent to scan rar files and everything before they even touch your computer), always works, etc...

    Just amazing.

    i'm changing my answer, as I AM DONE WITH AVIRA!!!!!! it goes behind my back all the time and deletes files that i have specifically asked it to ignore. also, continues to ask me about files that i just told it to "always ignore". SO I AM OFFICIALLY LOOKING FOR A NEW SECURITY SUIT, OR DIFFERENT PROGRAMS THAT ARE LIGHT ON MY PROCESSOR, AND THOROUGH IN PROTECTING MY COMPUTER. MOST IMPORTANT, HOWEVER, IS THAT IT DOESN'T DELETE OR OTHERWISE MESS WITH ANYTHING WITHOUT ASKING ME FIRST!!! WHAT SHOULD I TRY????

    Have tried and used quite a few, Avira, McAfee, Avast, Webroot, S&D Search & Destroy, Trend Micro, the list goes on.
    Then MSE came along, haven't looked back since.
    Although there is one that's moving up the ladder quickly and knocking the socks off the others including MSE, AVG, ESET, Norton, Kapersky, etc: and that's Vipre Home Premium.
