The is no best its a matter of personal opinion. This has been getting asked at least once a week every week.
The two main ones are AVG 7.5 free and AVAST free. Download both. Try each seperatly and see which one you like best. Do rememeber to delete the old anti virus before installing the other though. You cannot run both at the same time.
I use AVG and its fine.
Your choice.

AVG has worked well for me so far so like the others are saying its down to your own choice. I had Norton then when that expired I bought a copy McAfee but I just couldn't get away with that so I downloaded AVG Free.

Do please rememeber to delete the one you are using before you try the other or you will find they will not work. Only one antivirus program at a time.
And theres actualy only 2 downloads as theres 2 links for AVG.
