NOD32 is by far my favorite anti-virus to use. It's very minimal and effective. In terms of a free AV, Avast is my favorite. You can easily get a home edition key for free on their site.

I use Webroot Spy Sweeper for anti-malware. Haven't had any since I've gotten it so I assume it's working. Has some annoying pop-ups, especially if your subscription runs out, but otherwise works great. I highly recommend Highjack this!

Nod32 is really your only choice as a gamer.

I use Spybot - Search & Destroy it works really well, but I guess it depends on the computer.

I always used AVGFree however I decided to try Avira after a fresh install and while you do get one pop-up a day you essentially get the full product so its not bad.

Nod32 - Pay
avast! - Free

Nod32 is obviously the better choice, but if you can't afford it then I would suggest getting avast! and ccleaner.

I use Avast. It is a decent anti-virus and it does not have a lot of pop-ups. It has a nice scanner that pretty much scans everything coming inbound and alerts you with a siren noise when it detects a virus. It's reliable and doesn't hog that many resources.

Well ZoneAlarm has a useful Gaming Mode. It's not the best as when it starts updating it can slow down your comp a bit. I know the worst is Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 because it keeps sending you alerts when you open up everything and doesn't actually scan for real viruses and such, but scans the activity of the program so it flags everything as keyloggers (most games look for key input to skip the beginning opening sequences) and trojans (some games come with downloaders that let in updates).

AVG might not be good to use as well. I've known plenty of people that use AVG and it flags alot of things as viruses, trojans, etc like the mmorpg "Knight Online" installer downloaded from the official site. They do this to trick people into actually thinking its doing something. Its not the same as Kaspersky as it flags it as a virus as soon as its finished downloading, before programs even have a chance to do anything.

I have Vista, and I honestly prefer Avast's over protective ways then Vista's CRAP. So I have to agree. Avast is god to me. Best anti-virus I've had in a LONG time.
