Default What Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware do you use?

After numerous threads on here about how bad Norton is and how AVG has become "one of them" I thought it might be a good idea to discuss what programs you actually use without it turning into an argument about how bad every other program is.

So my questions are simply:
What your your preferred freeware Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware programs?
And
What are your preferred paid Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware?

I was using Kaspersky then when my subscription expired I went to Avira free and then I came across a free Nod32 beta which Im using atm.

I'd use the one in my sig but it doesnt run under 64-bit atm

I don't use any freeware ever. If a customer refuses to buy anything either from me or elsewhere I warn them to plug out their network cable and keep it that way.

From a paid point of view I use Sunbelt Vipre, Kaspersky and NOD32. I'm a registered reseller for Sunbelt and Eset. Kaspersky I just buy OEM. I use different packages in different situations.

Antivirus: Kaspersky internet security (The best you can get IMO)
Antispyware: Spywareblaster I keep installed, if I think I might have picked up a bug I'll use MBAM and Superantispyware run off of my flash drive.

avira and malwarebytes are my current favorites. Sometimes I boot from the ubcdforwindows and run superantispyware with avira from the disk.
