I don't use one actually... but I imagine Sharpshooter could make for a nice firewall. :>

Used to have NOD32 and it was great but the free subscription ran up so I've moved on to AVG.

I stopped using ones you have to pay for since the free ones and common sense seem to do the trick. I now use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Too lazy to switch. I am using Comodo internet security, which includes firewall, Defense+ and their antivirus. When I do manual scans I use malware bytes and super antispyware, to mix it up a bit.

Wow, am I the only one here that doesn't use an anti-virus program? Like, none whatsoever? I don't feel the need to use one... I mean, if you DO get a virus, antivirus programs can't do jack about it, since you've already gotten it. All they can do it tell you about the virus. By then, it's attached itself to other system files. I know they can stop virus pfrom executing, but I'd rather not have an anti-virus hog my system resources all the time, like they always used to when I used to use them.

If I get a virus, I reformat! Done! I keep all my stuff on an external drive, so it's nothing.

till date i have use avast, avira, avg, NOD32 and i would say Kaspersky is best of them all the firewall is just mind blowing it has saved me from many malware pop-ups were NOD32 has failed. another great thing is it scans all files inside RAR, EXE, MSI, ZIP files and detects trojans. this one feature i have not seen in other anti-viruses. small fee but but its totally worth it :D

You use the free options that Comodo provides, correct? What's the catch? How can they offer all this stuff for free?

That is a good question lol, as far as I know Comodo is one of the best firewalls out there. From what I've understood their Defense+ isn't bad either. I see very few people mentioning Comodo as their antivirus so I don't know why people don't use it but I believe some site did some kind of test and while Avast! (or AVG can't remember) catched 90% of their stuff, Comodo only found like 60-70%.
