I decided that I should probably install one... what is everyone using? should I just say screw it and get the AVG?

Hijack This is also used.

Norton Internet Security 2011. Comes bundled with anti-virus as well as a host of other invaluable internet security tools.

I've been through AVG, NOD32, bla bla. Gotten serious virus' from all of them.

Had Norton Internet Security (2010 + 2011) installed for the past 6 months - not a single hickup yet. And the same browsing.

After reading some reviews on the internet, I bought webroot... it was 50 bucks for 3 PCs for a year. According to the scan I did not have any viruses. :-)

Checked it out and got Essentials as well. Really is the best one out there. Are they going to include it as the default starting when it's out of Beta?

No, considering they'd get a lawsuit by the .EU for 'forcing' idiots to use their software (sif they never had the choice to install something else).

There's only a couple of vital functions MSE is missing that would make it perfect imo, but its still my favorite. I do use Comodo as my software firewall in place of Windows Firewall, since it has configurable notifications (unlike my hardware firewall).
