Sophos anti-virus as used by the British Government
It's effective but stays out of the way and doesn't screw up your machine like 99% of others

slarty is right sophos is the best and pretty much the defacto av on the internet. i tryed to convince the mis director on this fact but we wound up getting norton for gateways and on each desktop, which im very sastisfied with.

I have used Norton Anti-Virus for about ten years, and has served me very well. I have also used Innocolate it, McAffee, and Panda, and I still like NAV best. Some will argue it's a memory hog, and takes over everything, but it works for me.

I have Norton, its alright, but quite annoting. For one Trojan, itll warn you too many times. Slow to startup, but definetely beats McAfee anyday.
