    Does anyone have info/opinion on Emsisoft Anti-malware? I've tried it (30 day full use trial) and it seems to work well and doesn't bog down my system the way some others do but does find, stop and clean problem items. I was using Avast free version as well as their 30 day full function trial and it puts a bite on performance.

    Someone mentioned Kaspersky as one of the best.

    Any idea how these compare as an overall solution?

    I've been using them on a Toshiba Satelite 15.4" laptop, 2gb ram 200 gb HDD, dual boot Vista and Windows 7 sp1.

    I'm not familiar with Emsisoft Anti-malware and it doesn't much of track record in Virus Bulletin testing so I can't really comment on it's effectiveness.

    I generally recommend F-Secure Internet Security (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.f-secure.com">http://www.f-secure.com</a><!-- m -->) or Eset Smart Security (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.eset.com">http://www.eset.com</a><!-- m -->). Eset Smart Security is probably your best bet if you want minimal impact on system performance.
