    murali – the weakness about downloading Mcfee is that it makes you take of Microsoft Security Essentials anti virus program off your computer. I am using Avast because it lets me keep my other security anti virus programs!!!!!

    Avast is the best option you can pick.
    I’ve been using Avast Antivirus for 5 years now combined with Spybot Search & Destroy and now issues what so ever.

    Features I always look in Antivirus software:
    1) Boot time scan
    2) Live virus and antispyware monitor
    3) Automatic Updates
    4) a plus if it has Anti-rootkit built-in

    Avast has all that. Also, it fully support 64-bit windows environment so you don’t have to worry about 32-bit emulation under a 64-bit OS which sometimes can cause issues. Lastly, you can not bit the fact that is free for home users.

    I have been using PC Tools Spyware Doctor w/Antivirus with Windows 7 for a few months now and it works perfectly.

    I highly recommend it. It’s very effective and isn’t a big CPU hog.

    It works well on all versions of Windows. At $29, it’s a great value, as I have it running on three different computers.
