I'd suggest it depends on what you want to run it in.

For a low powered computer such as a Netbook, I'd suggest Avira AntiVir; for a powerful Windows 7 PC, there is Microsoft Security Essentials. Otherwise, there are Avast and AVG, of which I prefer Avast, although it can cause a mediocre PC to slow down quite noticeably.

After using Avira for a few years. I have to say that in my opinion there is no better free anti virus program. But other people will say otherwise.

If you deal with Barclays,the full Kaspersky Commercial Edition is free for 12 months. I relied on MSE for twelve months and then it let a load of nasties in a week ago which I am still trying to get rid of.
