To sum up, AVG or Avast! if you want free. I like Kaspersky.

I've got Avast! installed simply for "peace of mind" but I don't do anything that would ever elicit a virus to my machine.

McAfee works fine plus it does antispyware. I tried PCcillan and whenever it did a spyware search all it would find was the same 5 cookies.
