Can anyone recommend a virus program that doesnt suck my soul out? McAfee makes my PC run like ass, and I'd like some good protection that doesn't totally invade my computer and leech its CPU.

thanks,

Agreed. It works pretty well for Win32, BSD, and Linux.

AVG would be my second choice, if you don't like Clam. The 'basic' version of the software is free, and by 'basic' I mean it doesn't install a firewall, anti-spyware, anti-spam, etc.

But if you haven't already, I suggest that you try Clam

Clamwin looks great, but no real time protection - I'm wondering how big of a deal that is...?
