I am currently using Comodo anti virus on all 5 of our home computers. I have tried Avast and found it to slow the 2 older pc's down to a crawl at times. I would like to use one program on all computers as I am the administrator of our home network. Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated. Free programs are preferred of course.

With no reservations, I would recommend a combination of Microsoft MSE and Malwarebytes-Pro.

Links and prices (MSE is free) to follow.

http://www.malwarebytes.org/ (About US$20 each)

Both will give you "On-Access" protection with a small footprint taking away from your processor.

Your question doesn't mention why comodo isn't a viable solution?

Not saying comodo isn't viable. Just looking for the best option.

I think you are light-years ahead to use FREE MSE and Paid MBAM.
There is simply no comparision with the amount of anti-virus + anti-malware/spyware you will be getting.
