PC Tools is "Threatfire". It is abandonware, but I have it tweaked to the gills. I injected it pretty heavily.
I used to use Dr. Web CureIt on-demand, but now i simply use HitMan Pro. I also now use WSA.

I'm trying ESET Smart Security 7, and I like it. It's lighter than Comodo Internet Security, and it has a great antivirus database. I really like the fact that is detecting and removing PUP's.

I use Avira Free with privatefirewall for Windows XP, and yet I'm considering replacing it for Comodo IS 6 free recommended by those who know (You KNOW who you are!) :p

Avira was good when tweaked when I used it. CIS is maybe a bit better, which requires tweaking as well. Both are flexible, but CIS more so.

Tweaking an AV means maximize its efficiency via its settings & options

The free version Avira I use has absolutely no "tweakability". It may be a similar experience to buying discounted fireworks late on the 4th of July. Maybe we just get what we pay for. I can't complain that I've picked a Dud since it's free!;) It does have (3) buttons. (1) for "Scan Sytem", another to "Start update", and a very special (1) with the word "Upgrade" I just tried for the very first time! Pushing this button felt dangerous:eek: & FUN like something out of "Alice in Wonderland" IE: "Drink me!" or :rolleyes: "Eat me!", lol! :p Here's what we find "going down the rabbit hole": "Stronger antivirus, protection for tablets and smartphones as well as 5GB of online storage. (..& another button!!) "Upgrade to Avira Antivirus Suite $44.99". o_O I think I'll wake up now.:D *ooh,:confused: actually (after reading Umbra Polaris' comment) I'd found the "tweaking" rabbit hole. (..just had to look to find the engine's hood!)
