Avast is free for home use, but not for business.

Sad to say ('cause I've been recommending it for awhile now), MSE (known known as Windows Defender) has failed 2 recent certification tests for seriously poor performance.

it may be slow but it is still effective and gets decent scores on av-comparatives. I run my scans at odd times when I am not using the computer much so I don't care how long it takes.

i`ve used it since all the bad experiences i had with the free antivirus (avg, avast and antivir) and also of the most known antivirus giants in the industry like norton, mcafee and kaspersky...
either there was no protection at all (free ones and norton and mcafee) or just too many alarms of pigs crying out loud waiting for me to do something...
i remember installing Trend pc-cillin 2005 and thought i had done something wrong because it wouldn`t ask me any questions, but i was always protected...
haven`t changed since... the 2013 version on my windows 8 and windows 7 pcs just keep working without a hickup...
i use the titanium maximum security 2013 since it came out. no problems whatsoever.

I just renewed X6 for another year. NOTE: VirusBarrier 2013 has received bad reviews... some claiming it's stripped down and much inferior to X6.
