What would you recomend as the best free antivirus system?

I use AVG Free 2012 on Win 7 PC. Previously I had the paid version of AVG Internet Security; but that was good for Win XP. With Win 7 and router I do not need a further firewall so the basic free AVG AV is just great. Also I do not bother with the AVG Toolbar.

I use MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) and find it is IMHO excellent. Would also recommend MalwareBytes Anti-Malware which is free, though the paid-for version is better and not really expensive.
