Personally I would recommend Avast anti virus. I would avoid AVG as it has become quite "resource hungry" recently

Been using AVF Free for the last 6 years with no problems.

I've heard the free Avast is good too click here.

Who do you bank with online? Sometimes banks give you free access to fully paid-for antivirus/Internet security - e.g. Barclays click here. G

My views:

Firewall: PCTools
Anti Virus: Avira
Malware preventer: Spywareblaster
Malware scan/ remove: Superantispyware and Malawarebytes.
Only have one anti virus. Others here like Avast or MS Security Essentials - all free

Some say AVG clashes with ZA etc.I used it until about a year ago .

I like Avira and it has definitely stopped a couple of attacks.
