Um, you can just wait till CIS comes out of beta. Or untill Avast 5 shows up (it will have a firewall included AFAIK)  :)

For now, use avast! or Avira  :)

Hmmm...I tried Avira, but it totally stopped my internet connect, and I just didn't like it.  I think I'll get Avast!.

Both will protect you just fine. Avast! is a complete package against malware - it has everything you need, antivirus, antispyware, antirootkit, mail,p2p and web shields and improved self-defense. For Free !  :-TU

Avira Free lacks the antispyware component and a web scanner, but it is also a fine choice.

BTW, don't forget to check out avast! website for nice looking skins !  ;)

Not sure about CIS final release date, but the BETA period shoudn't be long  88) Can't tell really  :-\

I only use CIS\CMF and sandboxie as real time protection.  Once in a while I'll scan my system with the free versions of AVIA\MBAM\SAS

I Like ESET NOD32 Antivirus 3.0 and I like AVG 8.0 Antivirus... Both are excellent detectors of bad software and they are fast! But I think AVG is faster than NOD 32..

Anyway, The ones I recommend:

Free:
-Avira
-Avast!

Paid:
-NOD32
-Kaspersky

I don't recommend AVG Anymore... Version 8 just totally turned me off it. Too bloated, Too buggy, The FREE Version is now a lot more restricted.

Off course I am keeping a sharp eye on CAV. :-)

I agree with you on AVG....was always using up at least 20-30% of my precious CPU.............But when I tried Avira it totally messed up my internet connection.  I couldn't even connect when I uninstalled it, so I had to use System Restore.
