My choice is KASPERSKY. And Greatkarthik bro, how did u miss McAfee in the Poll list. Pls add it to the list.

I have used AVG, Avira and Avast as free versions, NOD32 as licensed version and McAfee as OEM version with my Dell Inspiron. Finally now I am using Kaspersky Licensed version. In my experience, I would say Kaspersky is the best. It also gives useful plugins like Kaspersky URL advisor, Kaspersky Virtual keyboard and Kaspersky Anti Banner for browsers.

Apart from the excellent software they also provide good Technical Support. We can directly contact the Virus lab (check last image) for any issues and get it sorted out. I would like to share a experience with them.

I use a software called Azhagi+, a freeware which helps me to type in Tamil on my system. Kaspersky was identifying this software as a malware and keep alerting me. I was sure that the software was safe. So, i contacted the Virus lab and informed this. They asked me to email the software installation files, which i did. They replied me that the software is safe and that they have added it to their database and will be sending out a update for this. As said, they sent a update th next day and after that, the issue was resolved. It was nice to see that they listened to a customer's call and updated their database. Not sure how many will do this.

Here are some snaps of Kaspersky explaining the features.
