How do you determine what Anti-virus works?
I need a referral for a new antivirus all-in-one: firewall, storage, anti-spyware etc. I know most people go by reviews in PC World and other places, but do you guys use trial and error, word of mouth, or other sources? I just want to know what's reliable before I spend all the $$$ or sign up for something random!

I mainly use trial and error. But if there is one that gets recommend often in threads, I try those out too.
For $, I think Kaspersky is the best.
For free, AVG or Avast probably.

I've always been happy with Avast Home (free edition) but have seen alot of talk about Kaspersky (sp?) and NOD32. For anything I have ever needed Avast Home has been able to do.. and then some. For a corporate structure or business anti-virus it would definately be something that costs $$, so I would be looking into packages like Trend Micro, Symantec, NOD32, and Kaspersky.Mobile: Thinkpad T61 | WinXP Pro | C2D T8300 CPU | 3GB DDR2 | 320GB Hybrid SSD HDD | AGN & WWAN
