As of today I'm using Kaspersky Free Antivirus which comes with a 365 days license. Too early to tell if I'll keep it installed or not however it seems to be running good on WinXP.

 

Bless you, Andavari.  Now I can follow you, and see if Kas will work on xp here... :ph34r: 

Have been looking for a replacement for Avast.

Still going very well! Supposedly it's not compatible with Microsoft User Profile Hive Cleanup and offers to uninstall it during setup, I didn't allow the uninstall and so far I haven't had any issues... ...yet.

 

So far it's the only antivirus (free or paid) that I've used in 10+ years that doesn't have glaringly obvious bugs right out of the gate which is exceptionally surprising.

Now I use Windows Defender. I used to have Norton but that became a real pita, whenever it updated it break something within Norton requiring a reinstall of the program.

Wow that's risky and doesn't just make you vulnerable but any machines that connect to the same intranet as you do. 

Thanks for furthering their objectives ;) just kidding...kinda

hopefully you mean "don't use any 3rd party AV program" and therefore replying on the inbuilt one in Windows 7, 8 or 10 - which is just fine.

but to have no AV altogether well, no nice way to say it, you're just kidding yourself.

Sophos - should be there for complete... :) Lot educational institutions are using Sophos now, back in 2008 was bit annoying ;)

McAfee Enterprise - mainly for my Win platforms

"Popularity" differs markedly by country.  As one would expect, some brands are global in reach, some are very region-specific and each brand has its own "heartland territories".  Using Google Trends as an obviously flawed and regionally biased but potentially indicative proxy for popularity across different countries, the "top brand" out of 5 of the most widely adopted consumer antivirus products in each geography over the past 12 months come out as:

(Blue = AVG, Purple = Avast, Yellow = Norton, Green = Kaspersky, Red = McAfee)
