    Yep Avast is good, been using it for a year or two with no problems yet.

    Try Avast i use it and have had no problems. wavast.com

    I am a fan of microsoft security essentials - seems to not slow down the machine at all and I have had no problems with it.

    Avast Free edition here as well - been using for about a year and it doesn't seem to hog system or take ages to load up. Picks up stuff and seems to work well

    MSET ftw

    Personally I like the MSE one, I find Avast can be a pain after a year or so usage. And even though you can turn it off the Virus Database has been updated message is bloody annoying, it seems to slow the machine up while it is doing all that, MSE is the way forward IMO.
