I always used to use AVG but have had a few arguments with it... Now I use
Avast! and am more than happy with it... It does have some annoying traits
(advise checking its sound settings, for instance)

I've got Avast! running on 3 or 4 machines now and none of them have had any

(having said that AVG is still a pretty decent product)

Interested to watch this myself as I'm in the market for one to strap to my
consumer NAS
