What is the best virus protection software?

I've been using Spyware Doctor for about five years and it seems to be working for me. I turn off the Intelliguard feature because it slows down my computer a lot! I'd like to know what everyone else uses.

I would go with Spyware doctor. I have been using it since a long time and been really happy and safe with it. Tried all of them but this is what i would recommend to.

AVG Free 8.5 (good stuff)

You could use AVG, Avast, or Comodo(firewall with optional virus scanner) and then monthly or bi-monthly use TrendMicro's HouseCall which is an online scanner that works extremely well

why don't you try using eset nod32?it's easy to use and user-friendly...plus scans are more fast comparing to AVG and Norton.

Avast its free as well or AGV free
As my computer tech friend always says: You get what you pay for in antivirus software. Yes they are free. Almost all of his virus removals are on machines that have avgfree installed.

norton hands down
norton is good but only the corporate versions are bloat-free. The consumer versions take up so many resources and graphically 'annoy' the hell out of me (and many alike)...good software though.

I use the free version of AVG on my home computer. My work computer uses symantec.

AVG (paid for by my employer, as I use my PC for work-related stuff as well) works fine for me.
