    I want an antivirus(free or paid) which does a great virus catching job.I am on dialup so suggest some antivirus whose definition files are small to download(not like norton).I don't want avast home or avg free edition.It should also be light on system resources.

    free-> Try Kaspersky's cousin :D bro, Active Virus Shield.

    Paid->Definetly- Kaspersky Anti-Virus or Kaspersky Internet Security
    __________
    i'm using KIS for nearly 6 months, & i did a Full system Scan (1st time with KIS, last week) before taking a Backup (using Acronis TrueImage), KIS found NOTHING.

    its really the best AV, kicks the Trojan, Virus out before even they can enter the PC fully. :D

    No question that Kaspersky Internet Security Suite is the best overall protection

    If u want free, just use KAV beta from their FTP, free and legal. I find it good enough.
