I use Avast Home on all of our computers/laptops. I also do a monthly online scan at BitDefender and so far we've all stayed clean.

Microsoft Security Essentials has worked great for me for at least over a year.

I've been using Avast for a while now, no problems yet.

Avast is my anti-virus.
I scan with Spybot every two weeks.

Thanks for the tip on Security Essentials.

Yep or I wouldn't use it  :h0161

SE isn't as much of a resource hog as AVG and Avast.

Thanks for mentioning Spybot, I haven't used it in years but just now downloaded!

I also use Malwarebytes.
