I chose Bitdefender Free because it is 64bit.  If avast! Free was 64bit, I would go avast! Free.

BD free is the lightest and best av.

If avast! was 64bit, it would be the best av.
You need to get your facts straight.

Well according to the guide you posted Microsoft is the leader ???, there are also a few other free vendors that I know of that aren't even mentioned on the guide and a particular free AV that I'm testing at the moment on one of my systems that also was not mentioned has 450 million users and growing very fast :)
Yes. It will be interesting to see if the rise in usage of 'Qihu 360' will translate into more mainstream media test/review coverage, in addition to AVC & AV-Test.

I'm taking Comdo av  for a spin.

People that know me here know I am no I fan of Comodo

I'm giving it a trial as it is 64bit.  I wish avast! was 64bit.

Avast! installs in the 64bit folder, but that doest  make it 64bit.

As mentioned many times, it isn't necessary.
It works perfectly on my 64 bit systems.

I don't trust anything from Comodo,so I dumped it.
