    Which AV to use

    My Symantec Anti Virus is up for renewal soon and although i am happy with it i was wondering if there is a better one out there as it does tend to be 'hungry' on the processor. I have heard of kaspersky but have had no personal experience of it.

    It will only be for 80 admin machines as county provide us with free McAfee for the curric machines.

    What ones should i be considering?

    My LEA kindly provides Sophos - which touch wood seems to do the job well nowadays. The current version seems to be much less memory hungry than it's predecessor. Sophos support is also superb.
