I used to always use AVG Free but this new 2013 model I just downloaded it bulky as all else. So I'm trying to see what other peoples suggestions are? Just something low weight, but good.

I use Avira but the update "ad" thing is a little annoying. Though you can just set it up to update at a time when you are away from the pc

Paid - Bitdefender or GDATA

Free - Avast

But don't take my word for it, check AV-Compartives.org AV-Test.Org ICSA Labs and Westcoast Labs

Give MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) a go... if you don't like it, then you can look for other alternatives.

Since August 2011, I've been running MSE on all my computers with the exception of one which uses a paid antivirus package.

Why get Bitdefender when GDATA is bitdefender and avast under one gui

Get Gdata its the lowest on resources and you get 2 antivirus engines under 1 hood.

I've been using MSE as well for over a year on my personal, as well as many of my client's builds. Works great, updates frequently.

I muse MSE . With Malwarebytes and MCAfee as an on demand scanners to pick up anything potentially missed by MSE. No problems with any of them, and all free.
