    Got Windows 7 installed today. You guys got any recommendations for a anti virus that uses little of my system? Used to use NOD32 when I had XP and was happy with that type of program.

    ugh... decent but a bitch to get off the system when it doesnt function right. loads of registry settings to be removed, services and control sets etc etc ask me how I know lol

    Kaspersky Internt Security is the best I think

    doesnt use as many resources updates like every four hours. plus i have AVG installed on my office machine and i have had to reimage it three times due to viruses. avast is on my personal machine (which i use for to look at the porno sites) and i have not had a single problem with it in two years.

    I was really sad I missed out on the Microsoft Security Essentials Beta, using Avast till I get a chance to try that.
