What anti-virus software do you use?

What anti-virus software do you use?
What anti-virus software do you use on your PC?
Describe the product you use, and why you chose it.
Provide a link to the manufacturer's web page.

Here is Wikipedia's comparison chart of the major brands of anti-virus software:
Comparison of antivirus software



Personally, I use the Sophos Unified Threat Management (UTM v9.2) firewall, which runs as a dedicated firewall and router on a common PC hardware box with two or more Ethernet cards installed.
I also use their Sophos End Point Protection Suite on my PCs.
The combination of those two products provide an enterprise class integrated and centrally managed anti-virus environment that can be configured to update hourly.

I picked Sophos because it was the natural progression for me from the Astaro Security Gateway that I have used various versions of for more than 10 years.
Sophos bought out Astaro in July 2011.

Sophos' price can't be beat, since they provide a free 3 year home use license for both their firewall and their desktop anti-virus software for up to 10 PCs.

I just use Avast because... well it's free and it does what I need it too.
In all fairness I have half the virus shields it provides turned off most of the time. xD

Avira ftw

I do get annoyed by the constant updates. I think sometimes they just want to make you think the shit is doing something when really it is just eating up memory XD

I use:Webroot

It works with the Windows Firewall... I originally bought their cache cleaner way back when.They do everything now...and it doesn't eat up memory like the old Norton used to. I also used Panda in the past , which I thought was good. I just switched from Norton 360 a couple years ago.
