5. F-Secure Anti-virus v8.00.102 (Latest!)
F-Secure AntiVirus is a user-friendly program loaded with scanning capabilities that will keep your PC secure and safe. This suite provides registry startup protection and screens emails and instant messages-to name just a few of its defensive features.
While F-secure is not a huge system hog, the program does have several processes running that when combined, use more of your system than our top rated products. Nonetheless, the scan time was about average compared to the other high-ranking antivirus programs.
The average person can install F-Secure and be worry free about viruses infecting their machine. With just a glance at this program, you can quickly tell if you are up to date on your virus definitions, and see if there is anything you should be concerned about.

McAfee is an industry leader in computer protection and VirusScan is their #1 defense against viruses. This software comes with a ScriptStopper, to prevent virus to propagate from one computer to another via email, and WormStopper.
Some downsides to the program are it doesn't provide instant message protection, P2P/file sharing protection or registry startup protection.
McAfee is a name brand product that does an excellent job at detecting and removing viruses. Their update process can be somewhat tedious and their support department needs to answer their emails in a timelier manner.
7. Norton 360 (Anti-virus + Everything Else) - All in One security
Norton, a big player in security software, offers competitive antivirus protection. The AntiVirus 2007 suite is easy to use and has extensive security features to protect your PC from malicious programs. Some of this protection includes instant messaging scanning, script blocking and POP3 and SMTP email protection. However, this software doesn’t provide protection from P2P or file sharing transfers.
Norton Antivirus 2007 provides a formidable defense against common Internet threats. However, we would like to see this product include registry startup protection and technical support by telephone.
AVG Anti-Virus has everything you need in an antivirus program: email scanning to include email attachments, boot scanning and auto updating of the virus definitions. From the basic interface, you can quickly do one of three tests: the Complete Test, Removable Media Test and Quick Test.
The biggest downside to AVG Anti-Virus is it didn't pass the West Coast Lab's level 2 test.

10. Norman Virus Control 5.90 (Latest!)
We rated Norman Virus Control as a “very good” antivirus program. It passed the Virus Bulletin and ICSA 2007.
This software isn't as user-friendly as some of the top-ranked products and may be difficult for computer novices.
Norman Virus Control is a reliable program that will protect your computer from annoying viruses. It isn't as user-friendly as some of the higher-ranking programs.
One of my favorites thats not on the list, because its sold in only some parts of the world like Europe...
Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition Premium 7.06.00.308 - LATEST!
Avira AntiVir has almost two decades of experience in fighting viruses and today's product shows it. With this program you get speed, use of excellent features and an increased protection level.
Since the free Classic Edition has its small limitations compared to the Premium one, I guess that the nag screen could go away. The interface could suffer a small redesign, since the File menu is useless, having only the Exit option, and the extra options available into the menu bar could be well organized into the tabbed area.
No matter if the sun is shining, having an umbrella is always a good precaution, and my recommendation today is to get Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition.
