I'm using it now. It takes minimal resources, and seems to scan decently fast. It has missed a few viruses though, and it doesn't warn you when it finds a virus (like when you go to some virus-filled website). The biggest issue I have is that sometimes it just stops working. There's no way to fix it, and CA's "solution" is to uninstall, and reinstall. I'm not pleased with it, since I paid the same price as Norton (which is still my favorite AV!).

But, I'd recommend it for Vista users, since they can get it for free. XP and Vista editions seem to be identical.

Why don't you use AVS for antivirus (powered by Kaspersky) and Comodo for firewall?
I don't use any antivirus but Comodo is on my list of must have.
