Default Which anti virus for a netbook?

I have always used AVG but was considering to Panda Cloud since it uses less resources ...

Security Starter Kit - Download.com

Any feedback?

Sorry, but I have to expand your quartet into something larger by also supporting this. :P

I've been impressed by Panda Cloud, both it and MSE are, IMO, better choices than AVG and the other freebies.

You know, has Microsoft Security Essentials actually detected for you guys? It doesn't detect anything for me while SuperAntiSpyware gets all the tracking cookies and stuff.

I throw MSE on any newer build or reformat I do.

...However I still use Avira Antivir. I just like it.
