If you bank with Barclays they offer 1 of the best security suite's on the market, a 3 user licence for 1 year (is renewed each year when the latest version is available)
http://www.barclays.co.uk/Helpsupport/FreeInternetsecuritysoftware/P1242557966961 - gives you all the info you need but you must be an online barclays bank customer. This will provide you with a 3 user licence of Kapersky Internet Security Suite 2011 for 12mths for FREE and/or Kapersky Mobile Security 1 user licence or if you own a MAC (are there any out there?) then they can have the Kapersky Anti-virus s/ware - but i thought the Mac had no viruses?
Is there any need to purchase A/Virus s/ware when you can get FREE? More than likely a number of users will comment on AVG, Avast or Avira (we shouldn't forget Microsoft's Security Essentials suite either) but in all the online reviews none of these packages come close to the paid for versions. BUT if you don't bank with HSBC or Barclays and need a decent security suite for your PC then BANK with them, deposit £1 open up a current account & download your FREE PC protection.
Otherwise if you're averse to banking with barclays or hsbc then download any of the following (all free):
