New dell laptop on the way!!

I have been wanting to replace my current dell laptop, so after messing around with the dell website i ordered a new dell 1521 laptop with vista home edition. I didn't get any antivirus with it b/c they wanted way more then i wanted to pay for it and also b/c my old laptop and my 8month old desktop antivirus is about to expire.... SO my question is which antivirus should i go with for my new laptop and desktop?

I had Mcafee System suite on my toshiba I bought. It worked pretty well but the free subscription ran out and I had a copy of Nortons 360 to use.

AVG and avast are both free antivirus programs that work great!! I and most of my family and friends use them.

The application I've seen had the most effect is Webroot Spysweeper. There's a version for $10 more with the anti-virus, plus it'll work on three computers.

Yes, I also chose the Midnight Blue..with the matching Logitech wireless mouse. Very nice finish, extremely scratch resistant.

I used AVG for a while and it worked great but then I got a copy of NOD32 and I like it a lot more it seems to be able to clean the viruses better rather than having to delete or quarantine them.

ive lost a hard drive to a virus. i attend kent state university and everyone is required to use mcafee enterprise module version 8.5i and i have heard of no one getting any kind of virus. and if something does get into the system, it tells u the direct location, which is easily found through the address bar. get this vrus protection. ive set everyone up in my family with it

I'm checking out the AVG free edition now on my old laptop and it seems to be pretty good.... But I'm still up in the air about which on to get!! My new laptop got delivered to the house on the 20th but i'm still out of town up in South Dakota and i'll be back to check it out on sunday afternoon.....

AVG Free works great, I use it along with the NOD32 and never had a problem.
