      Well, as far as this list concern I have used all the above Antiviruses and I was fully satisfied with them and also recommended others to use..
      and as far as Quick Heal Concern I found Problem in it..It won’t satisfies my Need..
      Well, If it is working for you.. then good.. But I would like to Suggest you to give again “Microsoft Security Essential” a try.

  6. I have used most of this Antivirus and I must say Avast and Avira are use less memory and are also quite powerful for detecting virus. I was not aware that Nortorn Internet Security is also free, I would love to see how nortorn works on my system.

  7. I have recently discovered Panda Cloud Antivirus, as a Free one, and it works fine. It seems this company has finally improved the performance of its products, which was one of the black spots in the past.

  8. I have used all of the antivirus listed above. But among them my favorite is Avast, its easy to use and effective. However, i am currently using e-scan security which pretty good than all of this. But thanks for the list.
