CA antivirus - seems pretty good. You can usually get it for free after rebate.

I don't need an Anti-Virus because Mac's don't get viruses :D

Lol Shoko!  I'll be joining the ranks of Macs soon enough.  (Wish it was the end of January- I want my MacPro to get here already. X__X)

As for me, I'm using Pandasoft on Aya-1 (my desktop) and McAfee with my laptop (currently using now).

I use Zonealarm for firewall and Avast antivirus as an antivirus program. Both are free and pretty good compared to the Norton 2003 I had before them.

I've been using AVG Free for several weeks, and never been bothered with a virus yet.  

It takes up less than 2MB of memory, which is quite absurd.  Even my CPU temperature tracker takes up twice as much memory.

I have been using AVG free for years now, and never had any problems with viruses. Although I'm too smart for not search random porn sites and open suspicious e-mails, so I guess my AVG never has been put on a real test.

I've tried NOrton, McAfee, PC Cilin, Avast and Zone Alarm.
I say that Zone Alarm is by far the best, it finds every viruses and is very light on memory usage. After ZA I'd pick Avast and PC Cilin.
 
McAfee was good but this last version full of bugs and uses A LOT of your machine, well and there's is norton which is worse than nothing.

I think ZA is overrated. Taking up too much memory nowadays.

I personally go for AVG for antivirus and Outpost for firewall.

Btw, if you can choose only 1, which would you guys go for? firewall or antivirus?

I use NOD32, I used to use norton but it failed me >_<
AVG is good too, and eats less memory.
If I had to choose I'll choose antivirus. I get more viruses from my friend's thumb drives than off the internet (the internet's pretty safe if you're careful enough)

Firewall of course! You don't necessary need a antivirus program if you have a good firewall program.

I just bought Trend Micro Pc-cillin Internet Security 2007 recently. Used Pc-cillin for a while now and I really like it.
