I'm running Grisoft AVG 6.0 at the moment.
Im on firefox and aside from being safer, it is far better than Internet explorer because it is really user friendly and instinctive.
give it a try. You can run it alongside IE until you decide to dump bill's scabby product

another thing with firefox is that you do not have to disable your popout blocker to enter chat.

More great stuff about 'Fox: you can subscribe to RSS feeds in the bookmark menus, search Google from the toolbar (or with a keystroke), search Wayback for any link with a right-click. There's also loads of free stuff available - a fancier RSS reader called Sage, an FTP client - and it's spyware proof.
And it's FREE. Did I say FREE?
