    Which one do you use?

    Are there any that you absolutely avoid?

    Security Essentials here. It seems to be doing its job. How about you Frosty?

    I’ve been using Microsoft Security Essentials too tinkerbell and its been pretty good here.

    Norton and McAfee have gotten too bloated over the years and tend to slow down older systems.

    I have used Norton for a long time, and since I can get it for free it makes it that much better, it has done me good and always kept me from getting virus’s, but it’s the Corporate version not the 360 or off the shelf versions.

    The corporate versions are usually much better. I never really had a problem with McAfee Enterprise when I had it and it allowed you to go in and block a lot of ways that viruses usually install themselves.

    I also have access to a version of McAfee called McAfee Virus Scan Plus, tried it before but seemed more bloated and I remember not liking it for some reason, but it did have more options to change than what the Norton’s does.
