I know this may have been ask before, but what is the best anti-virus out there at the moment?

I'm looking for something that don't take up a lot of resources.
At the moment I'm using avg7, the free version. But not sure if its doing as good as job as many others out there.

You can have a look thru' this Anti-Virus Comparison to get an idea how they are all performing.
If you are concerned about resources, my experience with Norton products is that they are a huge resource hog.

Check out our section Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps.

You could try Nod32, this is light on resources and has a good reputation.

I would recommend AVG Anti-Malware (antivirus and antispyware) or the Internet Security Suite, which I use. The free versions of AVG antivirus and antispyware are very good also, some other choices to check out are DrWeb antivirus, F-prot antivirus and NOD32.

NOD32's spyware protection, though not yet on a par with its antivirus capability...is a good choice if you want one tool to provide your antivirus and primary antispyware protection.
