MS Security Essentials, AVG, etc. are all pretty good and Iâve used them, and Vipre. Lately I switched to Kaspersky Internet Security 2012. It is not cheap though, but I must say it has a very high quality design, and it has caught several nasties that the other programs had not and do not notice. I recommend it if anybody wants to actually pay for anti-virus.
Curiously, Vipreâwhich claims to not bog down your machineâdid exactly that on my desktops, but not on my wifeâs laptop. Some programs conflict with it but neither I nor the Sunbelt tech support could ever figure out what it was.

I think Microsoft Security Essentials is a better program, I have been using it for the last 6 months or so without issues. It does not take forever to boot up etc.
