I chose avg mainly because in the past this is what has been your favorite. Is this because of infringement with some other AV's ? On one computer we're running norton corporate, because the pc belonged to another IT tech and it was free to us for now....

It's simply a question of the collecting of personal info?

Voted for Nod32, but also like AVG and MSE . I uninstalled AVG and installed MSE on the office pcs, still kept Nod32 here though lol.

Eset ftw. Using 54Mb memory right now, and running smooth.
next would be AVG. My only hassle with avg is when it's scanning it can lock up the whole pc (especially if it's not exactly brand new).
