    I just stopped using my fix-it utilities/Trend-Micro scanner, and am giving AVG a shot. Everytime it found a virus, and I'm not sure why, it wouldn't let me delete it; the best I could do was either do a scan, or hunt down the file myself and delete it. They were mostly java things (and to hunt them down meant I had to enable hidden files... basically, it got old.)

    8 viruses so far.

    I've used AVG Free on my windows box for years and have never had an infection. If only it worked for "other" things...........................................

    NOD32 is in my opinion the best antivirus, mainly because it uses so little resources.

    NOD32, Avast!, and KAV are all pretty good.

    Personally, I use Avira AntiVir free edition... mainly because my parents don't want to spend money on the non-free ones.

    I have used AVG in the past but have not tried Avast!, so I cannot endorse its effectiveness :D
