    The Norton 360 6.0 Beta should be running fantastic for you. MAKE sure to use the application to put it on a USB
    dongle, and update the .dat so you can use it in an emergency. I found it also useful on my network too.

    I have BitDefender 2012 Total Security. You just have to go to folder where its installed and set compatibility mode of Win7 and check 'Run as Administrator' to vsserv.exe

    Any "brave souls" trying McAfee or Kaspersky?
    I am curious.

    McAfee is just a watered down version of Norton AV/Security Suite. Use to be a day when it was the best out there.
