    +1 for MSE. Non-intrusive, low overhead and seems to work well.

    MSE is the fastest of the bunch. I think that it runs on a lower level than all the rest ( I think there was a legal response from AV companies).
    I use Avast free btw. It's ok on resources and I like it's features.

    Yes that was XP! Maybe "Sasser" or "Blaster" viruses
    I guess it was related to some ISP providers that was letting some trojan/malware sending data packets across the internet.
    It was incredible that I was getting the virus on a totally clean PC without even opening a website.

    I think anti virus software is a huge waste of time, but if you have to, use MSE.

    Thanks for all the comments, guys. I'm leaning towards MSE.
    Cheers.

    MSE here too :)

    And btw, if in any case you feel something's wrong that MSE didn't catch, there's not much some MBAM, Hitman Pro and TDSSKiller won't catch (all free).

    MSE fan here as well. Works great, been using it since like 2009 when I first got Windows 7
