    I use the dont-click-randomly-on-files-emailed-to-me-virus-scanner coupled with a decent firewall.

    Haven't had any issues so far.

    Haha although I usually do open the files, just to see if Norton catches them, which it does...

    Anything listed on that website will be certified by the ICSA. Any of them will work just as well as the others.

    Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition here. Works like a hot damn, and stays out of my way until theres actuallys a problem. Never leave home without it.
    Great scotch is great precisely because you drink it with great friends.

    I don't have a AVS installed, but I use Panda Activescan once a month..

    But I run Peer Guardian 2, MS Anti-Spyware and Zone Alarm Firewall.

    CA Etrust Internet Security.

    I will never use norton or mcafee...why? because when someone wants to make a virus to affect most people and disable antivirus programs, they go after the 2 most popular.

    And Norton is a Resource PIG!!!
    Free ones work, but not as good.

    And as for not using one, stupid idea!!!! Just dealt with a computer today and that guy had the same philosophy. Turned out he had about 15 viruses on there.
