None in particular, just all security products.

Fanboys can calm down.

Since (McAfee) scan.exe is not longer available, on DOS (hehe), I've mostly been using Norton Antivirus (like almost everything about it, including how certain sections can be disabled, without the Windows (7) Action Center activating; and/or how the disabled features can be ignored within NAV, so that there won't be a notice, there, either).

Microsoft Security Essentials / Windows Defender
Hi, there are literally hundreds of (or in any case many, now and in the past) articles and/or reasons why MSE isn't a very good product (or ever was?); just one example is @ this (old :)) link:
Code:
http://www.informationweek.com/security/vulnerabilities-and-threats/microsoft-security-essentials-loses-av-certification/d/d-id/1107614?
Not confirmed, but the "timeline" looks absolutely horrendous (2012-12-05, 'vendor informed' && 2013-02-13, 'vendor released fixed version'); took ~2 months to *fix*
Code:

P.S.
ESET no need to explain why.
Honestly, I do NOT know why, btw. =)

Maybe the title of this thread should be changed to "Which product are you a dedicated fanboy of?"
In this case we have a lot of ESET fanboys.:rolleyes:

Thanks. :D

Webroot SecureAnywhere - is effective, does not slow down the system because it runs in the cloud.

I used to use Webroot until I got infected. My ISP Tech fixed the problem & told me Webroot was not the best choice for an AV. If you use Webroot you are playing with FIRE in my opinion!
