I use AVAST Free with my new computer right now and happy with it. Did use AVG 7.5 in my previous ones (AVG 8 is the current version) These are the most popular free anti virus programs. Both have their fans.

The best ones are what you pay for....of course. But if you can't afford them, AVAST and AVG are "up there" as the best "free" ones.

Well...i'd recommend Avira AntiVir PE, it's just amazing....i've been using it for 3 years now, and my system has never been infected since i started using it...it has a paid version too...

I personally use Avast, There are plenty of good free anti-virus software that offer the same kind of protection as the boxed software you can buy at the store. Have a look at it Best Free Antivirus Software
