    I have recently started using Microsoft Security Essentials http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

    It is free and seems to be performing as well, if not better, than most other free security software.

    It seem to be doing well in the av camparison.

    This article gives more info about MSE.

    if you look at pc magazine and pc world rating them, they all rank within a percentage or 2 in accuracy. the real trick is to keep them up to date and scan often. stay away from chat rooms and questionable sites

    Your going to get everyones favorite, not much help. I like Sophos but its not released in single installs (you have to get a minimum of 3).

    out of the ones you listed…noton is the best out of them….I like Kaspersky myself its a great program..I just got a magazine that did an article on Anti virus etc and here is the list in order
    1. Gdata
    2. Norton
    3. Kaspersky
    4 Bit Defender
    5. Panda

    I tried Gdata and I dont like it ….it make the web pages with java load slow or not at all….if I could figure out how to fix it I would like it better then my Kaspersky cause Gdata did find 25 viruses that Kaspersky missed….plus its a lot faster…I have a 500gb and a 1tb and it took it less then 30 min to go through the 500gb….Kaspersky would take 10 hours or longer maybe there is a setting in Gdata I can change but I havent played with it enough….they also said Norton is the best for the non tech savvy person….its kinda more hands off so if your not a geek or just dont want to mess with it get norton.

    If you want to check out the article yourself it in PC World…January 2010 issue red cover.

    Answer is to not use any security suite. Use a different anti-virus from your malware or spyware remover. Best of all do it for free, use Avira for your AV, Malwarebytes for your anti-spyware and just use Windows firewall its all you need especially if your behind a router like you should be. Or keep Eset but just get the antivirus, it works fine

    I use Avast now, I have also got superantispyware and Malwarebytes. I recently changed to Comodo firewall which seems fine and I seem to boot up quicker. They are all free for personal use and I have had no trouble with Viruses Trojans Hackers etc. I also use Windows Defender from the Microsoft site. It is safe to use two anti-spy products but never use more than one A/V as it can cause conflicts. You should run A/V and anti spy weekly. Hope this helps
