    For those who want a free program, Avira has tested well in AV-Comparatives. And I agree with jwoods--sophos is not a top line product. Nevertheless, some of the office supply chains are pushing it.

    Agreed, Avira has good results in all categories. I've just installed it for a friend who was complaining about AVG and it seems to run with little resource impact.
