Nowadays, its a subjective question. Subjective as it is, I am going to answer it: I prefer Kaspersky. I've had very pleasant experience with it in the past, it features excellent registry/behavioural monitoring facilities, the response time of the support lightning quick (you could submit a sample, that's not in the signature db and it would be in the updates within an hour, usually even quicker).

By the way. Antivirus tests mean nothing. At all.

I frequently used AVG, but the more recent versions have veered towards bloatware. I would suggest something along the lines of ClamAV, NOD32, or Kapersky.

+1 to ClamAV for not dragging system performance down as much as a lot of the others. –  Brian Knoblauch Jun 2 '09 at 15:20
