Zone Alarm and AVG are OK. I've seen too many PCs running AVG with a couple of viruses happily running along side to be able to recommend it anymore. AVG is a great anti virus as long as you don't test it too much. Probably better suited to a more sensible user.

However I've been looking at NOD32 (click here) Not free but inexpensive. It's been picking up loads of things other AVs have missed. I'll be switching to it when my current AV subscription runs out...
