What do we look for when chosing antivirus software?

Personally, I’m looking for something that doesn’t,

i) Scan every mouse click, making the PC unusable
ii) Is affordable, and easy to use

We use Norton Antivirus 2006, and F-Prot at work. Both do what they say on the Tin. (*cough* no slander)

… I’ve been looking at home for something and came across C.O.M.O.D.O’s offering.
