I currently use Avira, and so far it's worked pretty well. Any criticisms? Obviously I like it for it's price as well, and I barely web browse on the PC I use it on, but I am almost constantly connected online, so any recommendations would be appreciated.

BitDefender - AV
Comodo - Firewall.

That should do it Smiley

I don't currently use AV, i just encrypt anything important and maintain a protected network.

However at work the only product i would ever install on a computer is NOD32..

That's pretty much what I do, very careful, go to no questionable sites (do most of my browsing on my mac) and then AV on top. Not flush with money at the moment, so I go cheap. Unfortunately cheap probably isn't the safest.

Oh, and for some reason Norton's latest updates have been doing well lately.

I didn't say I use Nortin, I'm just reporting the statistics of infection rate I've been seeing.

Who named BitDefender number one?

There are some great free AV's out there the 3 best ones are Avira, avast! and Microsoft Security Essentials all of these will give you good protection and all have good detection rates. Choosing between these 3 will come down to personal preference and how will they perform on your pc. A good site that runs AV tests is http://www.av-comparatives.org/

If you actually believe that BitDefender is #1, you're sadly mistaken. It's all PR rubbish. Avira is a good freebie, NOD32 is the best to pay for.

To everyone who reported this post, the 2012 Beta is free.
