Well, it's an opinion based question but I use it and I think it is definitely a very good one, best in my opinion.
I use it and think its one of the better ones. Just make sure you choose to do a custom install and only check the first 3 boxes on the left.
In the past I used Bitdefender Free which is lightweight and cloud-based to help catch polymorphic malware. I put it on all the computers I work with. It doesn't have loads of crap with it and it just works.
Definition-based anti-virus isn't a full prof solution though. You might want to read about Sandboxie for your browser. It's free for the browser, but after about 30 days when you use Sandboxie it will have a registration screen that counts down to 5 before the browser launches. Small price to pay for free.
Or skip anti-virus crap altogether and check out Faronics Anti-executable. I tossed malware at it and never got by.
I like Avast and they still have a pretty good standing in testing with av-comparatives.org. I personally use the free version of Sophos Home on all my computers and have been pretty happy with that product.
There is a "new" upcomer… Sophos… They used to focus on the business customers but has since a while been selling a HOME-version..
They have a, somewhat, limited version that is free, one registration gives you protection for 3 devices (PC or MAC)
The purchase version has more functions and support up to 10 devices (PC and MAC)..
Did you know that sophos actually seem to own and run HitmanPro?
Well they have been tested really well in the business tests (to new to be tested as home-version?)
Check it out here: http://home.sophos.com
