    Avast, it's free, it's light (on resources) and seems to be pretty good for the job to me.

    Mcafee misses viruses left right and centre in my experience. AVG is good , but it's a little heavyweight for my liking

    Avast.

    I use the free version of Anti-Vir myself, but have also used AVG, both are great in the free versions.

    Edit: or are you just talking about the free version?

    AVG, Mcafee is becoming like Norton....a memory hogger!

    AVG or Avast. Both are excellent and both are completely free.

    i got the free mcafee offer a while back and i should have listened to others - painful to say the least and AVG is going back on as soon as i can be bothered....although i might give avast a wee shot as AVG can be a bit of a pain at times as well.

    Kaspersky............get it free if you are at Barclays.

    Nod 32 works great on my PC and Laptop.......... Also use C Cleaner once a week.

    AVAST!

    At least 4 people recently tried this after removing AVG only to find AVG had allowed viruses on their system.

    ]Avast! ]Home Editionis an excellent product for average users, in particular those who do not have a real-time antispyware product, although its funky media player style interface is not to everyone's taste. Avast is the least restricted product out of the three, with both anti-rootkit and anti-spyware capabilities. It also has full real-time capabilities, including a web scanner, an e-mail scanner and IM and P2P protection. Avast is fairly light on resources, and is also the only product out of these three to continue support for older Windows platforms.


    ]AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition has been continuously refined since it was initially released in 1991. The latest version makes further improvements to an already solid product. It now includes spyware, phishing, and email scam protection. Its detection rate is still very good. Regular automatic updates come quickly as before and, despite rumors, the new email scanning feature is not trial limited to 30 days. It has grown considerably in size, is heavy on resources and has very slow scan speeds. The automatic updates occasionally did not work on my computer. By default, it installs the AVG Security Toolbar with Yahoo search. Free and paid versions are available; the differences are that the free version has anti-rootkit disabled, provides Linkscanner Lite instead of Linkscanner Pro and has no technical support other than a free user forum.
