Suggest a good Free Antivirus program.

I would appreciate help to find a good free antivirus program that works & does not keep nagging you to buy it.

I agree with Halmer.
But I also use Avast on another machine

AVG click here
Rising click here

Avira is good, but it does come with a nag screen.

I have Rising and it works well.
Runs in the background. Manual updates tho.

It also updates itself automatically and informs you that it has done so both verbally and by message panel.

Avast for me, constant update issues with AVG, forever reporting errors.

Avast - unless your system is older/slower/not so much RAM - in which case you'll find Avira lighter on resource use - and you'll just have to put up with the nag screens.

Avast 4.8 at the moment, but a new version with an improved interface is on the way click here

I like AVG, never had any problems updating and find it runs nice and quietly, doesn't hog resources.

Rarely had any problems with AVG Free (no virus-related issues either) since I dumped a paid-for version of Symantec/Norton in favour of it several years ago. G
