on my windows machine, norton 2003, it was free (it just came in the mail one day, and I reset the registry key of my install date whenever it whines about me renewing my membership to their definitions)

@blinkidiot
From tests me and some friends did norton was the easiest to bypass.
Some of the kids over on beastdoor and jentil tend to agree, they code RAT apps that have firewall and anti virri bypass functions.

I have a norton corporate edition that i've been using for a while. It usually doesn't stop anything until after it has infected my computer but its still decent.

at work we use command which rocked. Stopped a lot of adware too. I have heard good things about kapersky.

I used avg free in my windows days.
I found it sufficient - worked fine and ran very light (as opposed to norton/symantec crap that is a total resource hog).

save yourself a buck & resource
use avg free
but be smart in the first place - avoiding viri isnt all that hard.

I don't use any. I never had any trouble either. But then I don't use iexplore or outlook.
