We had this discussion a few months ago and someone recommended a little program called Avast. I decided to try it just to see what the hype was...

I'm still using it.

Not only have I not gotten a single virus since then, but Spybot S&D hasn't gone off either. I've tested it - it has stopped several trojan/spyware apps BEFORE the other on-access scanners even know something is going on.

Avast is simply the best security program I've found in quite some time.

yeah, but how do I know you're surfing for hardcore porn 24/7?

any program will work if you're hanging out at ESPN...the real test is a program that looks Russian porn sites in the face and laughs at their silly viruses.....

I have about 150 viruses, trojans, and spyware on my test machine. Avast stopped them all.

ClamAV is nice and it's virus database is updated before the big guys most of the time. You are allowed to update your database against the main tree every two hours.

We use it on all of our mail servers and haven't missed a virus yet.

I have switched to Avast a couple of times for its cool little features; talking voice and sliding pop-up stuff. I always switch back because it just cant beat AVG for virus protection. It may look better, but that is just not enough in my opinion.
