Many forum members swear by AVG click here

Another good one (apparently) is Avast click here

Personally I use McAfee but that definitely isn't free. However they do offer an online scan click here as do Symantec (Norton) click here and Trend (PC-cilin) click here

Cheers guys but does avast support win/xp, also is AVG still supported.

I'm using avast! on win XP with no problems, I used to use AVG 6.0, but think avast! 4 is better.
AVG 6.0 is still supported, although Grisoft are supposed to be releasing a free version of 7.0 at some date.

Can i just ask this quickly my pc came with norton Av also a firewall built into norton now the trial version is over does this include the firewall as well.

You will need a seperate firewall if you use Avast! or AVG.

A free one I use is Outpost Free V1.0 click here

On a home computer there is no need for a firewall ;-))) but if you feel happier with one, Outpost is excellent.
