On My Laptop I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials because it has Windows 7 RC on it and on my Main Computer which is running Vista I'm using Norton 360 I bought N360 and Microsoft Security Essentials is Free from Microsoft.

I'm forever changing anti-virus suites.
Currently though, I'm using Avast! Home Edition (haven't registered it yet, as I'm planning on installing Windows Seven within the next 4 weeks).

I tried the NOD32 trial, and was impressed. Sleak interface, VERY low on resources and seemed generally very solid. However, I'm not prepared to pay £30 for an anti-virus suite!

I have removed your 4th option due to indicating where to get warez.


I use Microsoft Security Essentials. Free.

If you are using an AV that has been cracked does that not sugest that the AV is not actaully that secure???

never needed one for aeeeeges, i know whats going in and out of my computer (sounds dodgy) but i do install various AV's etc around every 2 months or so just to check i havent slipped up somewhere... and yup... im allways 100% safe.. never needed something to scream at me when theres a virus and ask for help and guidance like the user is ment to know

i just stick to common sense and safe browsing none of these dodgy pr0n sites or warez etc

Nope. All of my anti-virus / anti-malware programs are completely free. I'm running:

ThreatFire
AVG Free 9.0
MalwareBytes

They're my three main programs for this purpose. They work quite nicely too. All of them have a paid option available too. Should I get a method of online payment, I would probably consider getting one of them.
