Free virus checker win xp home advice

Can anyone recommend a free virus checker for win xp home
I have tried AVG 9 free but I am unable to download it
I can download a small file but when I click on it just takes me to a search site I then put in the search box avg 9 free and click the search button but it just returns to the same page
It must be something I am dong wrong as have downloaded it recently for my son
So I am wondering if there is another one someone can recomend or tell me what Iam doing wrong cheers Ray

Sounds like you may have caught a nastie.Try updating and run Malwarebytes free first.
