I'd recommend Avast...it's Home Version is free for personal use and works great...I've had it on both of my systems with no problems...

I just download and Installed AVAST. It asked me if I wanted to schedule a Scan when I Re-booted and i Chose "Yes." It found a Trojan and an Adware and I chose to delete them. When the computer booted up. everything slowed down. I had to shut down the computer by pressing the turn off button and restarted it. then I stopped the little scanning thing it does when the computer boots up into windows. then things returned to normal.

Thru my experience and quite a few others, the "free" virus scanners etc are worth pretty much what you pay for them, you are givin the impression that it is fixing all your problems when in reality, it actually isnt...

I use a version of Trend Micro's PC-Cillin that comes with http://www.v-com.com 's SystemSuite 5. It also includes Sygate's Personal FireWall and some of the best Win utilities available. I've also heard good things about Kaspersky and Node 32.
. Newegg is selling a downloadable version of PC-Cillin for around $32. No waiting for shipment.

kaspersky. I used to use NAV but it was a resource hog. Kaspersky even picked up a virus (Lovesan) attack on my WIN XP laptop from within my office network. It gave a pop up with the IP and we were able to track down the offending computer. rporate clients picked it up. so I guess I'm sold on Kasperesky
