    Which AV?

    Which one of these AV programs do you think is the best? Personally I use a combo of AVG Free and Spybot S&D to take care of viruses and malware. But what do you guys prefer?

    Edit: Forgot Kaspersky from the choices :S. Oh well.

    Super AntiSpyware is a really good program but it isn't a AV, its used for getting rid of malware and other virus that have already infected your computer.

    Lol, Norton??
    The program that you have to pay for? the program that gives people BSOD and other crashing problems.
    Norton has alot of problems, its a pain in the ass to disable and it picks up fake viruses.

    I find that AVG Free + Spybot have served me very well, but I might try out some of the suggestions that you guys have made. :P

    None of those. For example; Norton has MANY false positives, and picks up anything and everything, it's like a fucking tampon. It's also very heavy, and just terrible in general. If you want one of the best, lightweight anti viruses, I'd recommend ESET NOD32 Antivirus. Though, second on my list would have to be Malwarebytes - VERY lightweight and is my personal favorite.

    For paid AV if anyone recommends anything other than ESET NOD32 just leave. Free I suggest a combo of malware bytes, avg, vundofix, and Iobit security.
