I use Avast at home.

I pass out a "free stuff" CD with a couple of AV apps, spyware apps, Open Office, Truecrypt, other stuff. 

I keep hearing of some of our users running home computers with no A-V or Anti-spyware. Support your local international botnet?

For home use I recommend avg or avast to people.  But they are not legal to use on school computers.    I just went through finding an AV solution for MSJ.  I wound up choosing Lightspeed.  They were about $10 a seat for both antivirus and content filtering.   I think Symantec was cheeper but I have never been happy with its performance.

I'm going to be configuring thirty Acer Aspire One netbooks for teachers to keep after taking an in-house technology class. Before installing the free version of AVG, I'm wondering what other free antivirus programs you are installing out there other than AVG.
