Plenty! Everyone will have a favourite, but I have been using AVG Free for over a year and find it excellent. click here

I myself think the world of ClamWin. This is a port of clamav for linux and it is opensource meaning you can do what you like with it within the guidlines of the gnu genral public licence. This is updated on a very regular basis and has a huge comunity backing on the submisions. Be warned though the windoz version does not have a on access scanner so you have to scan files manualy. Anti fishing is suposedly coming in versions 0.90 which will be interesting.

I use AVG. It's never let me down yet and it's totally FREE. Yippie !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can 100% recommend Avast as suggested by 961. I've been using it for years, and find it is often better for virus detection than some well known expensive alternatives.

And I recommend AVG free.

Just another recommendation for AVG. I went with paid versions for years and I find AVG just as good (better in some respects) as any of the paid ones.
