    Used to have it at work and were able to use it on license at home, then we stopped using it (corporate reasons only) and stopped using it, don't know why other than Anti virus seems to go through trends one becomes better than others swap, then onto another etc etc, at that time it was a great app, BUT THAT WAS WITH WINDOWS machines so I've never used it in the Mac world.
    But I'd always trust a Sophos App.
    Does that help, probably not

    Tell them that your AV software is called Mac OS-X
    Home - Macbook Pro 15" : 2.16Ghz Core 2 Duo : 2Gb RAM

    Work - Mac Pro : 2.66 Ghz Quad core : 5Gb RAM : Twin 20" Cinema displays

    Previously I've used Intego VirusBarrier X2. It seems to take up relatively a lot of memory but compared to all the other commercial AV software, its negligible. Recently Intego started offering VirusBarrier X4 Dual Protection - Protection for both MAc & PC. It sounds a good deal.

    ClamxAV is a free AV software which also works pretty well too. It uses less memory(RAM).

    If you are interested in a commercial product I would suggest you to go for Intego. Otherwise you should try ClamxAV
