I like Comodo. Been using it for a while. Worked excellently while I had Vista 64-bit.

do me a favor do not get avast or avg they are crap i already got 150 virus on avg ...

I've never had a virus with AVG. Keep it updated, and use safe practices while surfing the web, and you'll be fine.

avg is good, i used it myself, works great.

bit defender is also nice.

both are free for personal use.

God Bless you!

Knightwarrior those were probably tracking cookies and not real viruses. You will know the difference.

I liked both Avast and AVG, but I'm with Knightwarrior on this, I like Avira better. I also use Vista 64-bit, and when I got rid of Avast (I was just trying out Avira) it found stuff Avast never heard of. They're all great programs, don't get me wrong, but out of these three my recommendation goes to Avira.

Avast, Avira, AVG, all the A's are good :). Also, I would recommend getting Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SuperAntiSpyware. You'll be picture perfect then.

dude, with AVG my pc used to enter in wierd urls, pop up a lot of advertisiment, even with the navigator closed.

avg and avast lack of protection, people use it just coz its easy and becoz they waste all the company money in PROPAGANDA/advertisements they pay for the websites say their proeduct is good. check previous antivirus tests i know what i am talking.

come one people, stop fighting over a simple virus scanner.

I'll try a few of the ones which are listed here.
Also I have superantispyware and Hitman Pro 3.5 for 64 bits vista.
