    Thats pretty good and its free so you don't have to pirate! Though your a pirate aye? Who isn't a pirate these days? Who's the pirate lord? ;)

    I never use a antivirus anymore, but I did use that one above by Nimrod on my laptop and it seemed to work really well.

    Microsoft Security Essentials is great, I cannot wait until it comes out of beta by the end of September. (The beta version will auto-update to the final one when its out) :)

    I don't use an anti-virus, but from what I've read Kaspersky has the best reputation.

    I believe that you said that you have gotten Windows 7? If its the RC beta you can get the Kaspersky beta. Link I personally didn't like Security Essentials. I removed Security Essentials and put on Kaspersky and it found a few things that Security Essentials had no idea about. Personally I would choose Kaspersky over any other Anti Virus on the marketplace.

    I haven't played with Security Essentials, but I have used Kaspersky in the past and it was a bit difficult to configure, but that's probably changed.

    I've been using Trend Internet Security 2009 for almost a year now and quite like it, plus it was free (not normally, normally it's $30 - $60) for a year long 3 user license.

    Yeah, Kaspersky isn't the most friendly to configure but I must say it does its job well.

    Microsoft Security Essentials is what I have been installing on the computers I’ve fixed recently, its free and gets the job done well.
