Default Antivirus software: how to choose

Everybody seems to have an opinion about A/V software, but I wonder how one goes about rating the different apps available.

I've used several, disliked them all (resource piggies!), kept the ones that had smaller footprints, reasonable licensing, decent reputations and seemed to get in the way the least.

Mostly I rely on the opinions of folks who follow this stuff more closely than I do. Really, other than the obvious stuff above, it's hard to tell which is going to work best. The one that stops the virus that would have taken you out had you been using a different AV program that didn't stop the virus ... sure. But how're you going to predict *that*?
