Looking for antivirus program...

I have been a long time user of AVG Pro, but I am looking to try something new on my new laptop. The reason being that when AVG scans, it really slows down my computer causing lagging performance during the 2 hour or so scan.

Is there anything out there that is not such a resource hog during scanning?

I initially went from NAV to AVG because of this, but now it seem AVG is really no better.

Thanks!

For Anti-Virus, So far I like Kaspersky the Best...

Here is a link to there site if you would want to check it out...

[url]http://www.kaspersky.com[/url]

One thing I found is if you want to use Kaspersky use a removal tool to remove other Anti-virus software, Norton and others like to hide small bits in your sub-folders even after you use your add and removal from your Control Panel...

Link for Norton & McAfee removal:
