Kaspersky Internet Security 2010

Also know by most as KIS (the suite version of KAV).

The problem about Norton and McAfee (last I knew) is they often depend on Internet Explorer as a fall back (user inter-face). IE gets busted, so does your anti-virus.

But #1 reason is they (Kaspersky) updates hourly and are quick to find everything.

MSE with Online Armor free. Excellent combo with minimal system performance impact. Tried Avast 5 free but didn't detect as many 0 day malware as MSE on my virtual machine. Plus web shield slows down internet speed.

Using Sunbelt VIPRE on all my PCs. Low impact, great product, great support.

Testing out immunet protect also, just for grins and giggles. Looks like a promising product to run in tandem with another AV/AM app.

I still don't use one. For better or worse I focus on execute prevention and restricted privileges instead.

Why does it have to be either-or? Those things are not mutually exclusive. There's nothing about running AV that prevents you from doing all those other things, and good AV's have negligible impact on the system. My preference is to implement computing practices that are appropriate for the risk environment, but to always have an AV as a backstop. The problem is that no single strategy, no single AV product, no single anything is going to provide 100% protection, so the more well-thought-out safety measures you have operating concurrently the better off you are.

I'm using NOD 4.0.474 on my desktop, and Security Essentials on my old desktop and my son's new laptop. So far I really like Security Essential a lot.

But I still love NOD and been using for over 3 years now and started with version 2.7.
