Default What Anti-Virus software do you use?

So,

What Anti-Virus do you use? I use Norton's Anti-Virus software Don't really like it and I am looking to switch from that. It takes too much time to scan my PC or it's just me (Quick Scan).

What about you? What Anti-Virus software do you use and why?

I use McAfee Anti-Virus software and a firewall w/ the same software. I really like it because it doesn't get in your way while you're trying to do stuff like with Norton Anti-Virus. You also won't get those stupid annoying pop-up things all the time.

I use Bitdefender. It works very well for me, and I've yet to encounter any problems.

I have had a chance of using loads of antivirus softwares. My favorite out of them, which I currently use is NOD32. Its by far the best. It does its job well and is very light on memory. The antivirus i most hate is Norton.

I am running a internet ( cyber ) cafe in our city. In the clients I use "BitDefeneder" Anti-Virus while on the Server I use McAfee Anti-Virus. BitDefender is very light and do not take too much of memory and also it is very quick. McAfee is also very quick but it take more memory than BitDefender but less than other ones. However McAfee is much more advanced than BitDefender in my opinion.

For the past 3 - 4 years I have been using Free AVG. During that time I have never had any problems with viruses or malware.

Before free avg I use the free version of computer associates, but they stopped that version.
