Kaspersky Internet Security for me [but I only use limited stuff from it] and you get the licence from Ebay or Amazon and it woiks and download the source from Kaspersky. You can buy a licence for a single product or for multiple products (more than one gadget). It works for me and I like to be balanced and be watched by GCHQ, US authorities, the Chinese government and - might as well - the Russians.

Kaspersky for me too. If you're a Virgin customer they've just gave me a free AV called F secure. I don't know what it's like but I plan on installing it on one of my netbooks.

I used to use to download a hell of a lot of free stuff and used F Secure all the time with no issues

Comodo internet security suite here. Free, used it for years, and never had any nasties while it's been running. It's picked a few up, at least one was a false positive, and their turnaround time on adding it was impressive.

Use f-secure at work and its very good.

We used to use AVG but they have become very annoying trying to promote extra products, saying you need this and that etc...
