I am looking for an antivirus for Windows XP because I am tired of all that shit that tries to infect my PC. So far I looked into Kaspersky AntiVirus Personal and McAfee Antivirus. Which one is better or should I pick something entirely different?

do any of you have any opinions on the free malware scanner by a-squared? a friend of mine swears by it, and it seems pretty solid and fast. friends keep coming to me for help on their virus infested computers, and i'm trying to find some fast, effective tools to clean up their systems. i usually install avg's free software, but the virus scan takes forever, and in my opinion, its always good to secondary scanner to use in addition. so what do you think? do you know of any solid, objective reviews on it? thanks.
