    I used to use AVG FREE and I liked it and it worked good however the interface was hard to get used to. I now use Symantec Anti from my school for free. It uses a bit more resources sometimes but it seems to work good. If you are purchasing something, the best I have ever used was Kaspersky.

    I was going to say AVG as well, if not that, Bit Defender (online or install version).

    It's going to take time to find out if any of them are really doing a good job.

    From what I understand, Microsoft changed the rules on the vendors by restricting root access.

    Symantec Corporate 10.2 works fine on Vista. It's the only version that does.

    use avg. it's free, and works great.
