What is the most effective anti-virus software? Whether free or you have to pay. Thanks

The Best Free Software to date is either Avast or AVG Free Edtion.

Don't discount AntiVir in either it's free or paid for versions.

See the av comparatives link from brundle above.

Would agree that NOD32 is the pick of the crop though.

Reputedly NOD32 as an AV alone (doesn't do anything else) but as an allround package Kaspersky seems to press all the buttons (rating higher than NOD32 on the AV-Comparatives site) and scoring extremely highly on all firewall tests I've seen.
