As already mentioned by johnnyrocker, AVG is an excellent free antivirus. Personally, I prefer Norton as I feel it's a much 'stronger' antivirus than AVG, but it does cost...

i have concerns about norton because it tends to be too constrictive about what it will allow and requires very careful configuration apart from the possibility of it being so big it manages to slow systems.

I like AVG used it for ever and its done a good job for me,but the best tool you can have for virus controll is common sense.

I use Panda Antivirus, does the job for me. Removes viruses automatically without hogging CPU like rivals.
