is great. Otherwise, I've heard a lot about Avast.

I like Avast. Some people like AVG but I don't know if it's available for free anymore.
Some people just don't use any at all, but you must know what you are doing, such as: -Not torrenting anything else than uncompressed mp3 files -Avoiding visiting website link sections on old websites that are not maintained regularly, especially French websites. -Not using IE But even then you never know if you'll not fall onto a random software download site that seems to have a good reputation in Google but in fact hides viruses.

Run Linux... <.< j/k you don't have to run it. You're free to try it though.
I use Avast! as well. Works great for me.

We are in 2034. The situation on Earth is catastrophic. The ozone layer has been completely destroyed by the carbonic gas of automobiles, the chemical industries, and the poosh-poosh in little cans. In the end, the earth cooks under the rays of the sun. We must find a planet on which can live 6 billion idiots. The planetary federation turns to the strongest country in the world: Canada. It is Canadian knowledge that has allowed, on October 28, 2034, the launch of the spaceship Romano Fafard, which leaves earth to search the confines of the Universe. Where the hand of man has never set foot.
I hate TI right now
You make me lose the game

Just one thing about Avast. If it's an old computer, sometimes it might cause major slowdowns when Avast is updated (about once, twice or three times per day). I noticed Avast Update was rather CPU-intensive. X.x
Ad-Aware is a great supplement to another scanner. Malware bytes is an essential tool for removing horrible infections, but not so great for everyday use.
I was going to suggest linux, but since it's already been brought up 3 times I'll refrain.
AVG is a steaming pile of dung. It's malware itself, with its incessant ads for the paid-for version and the extreme effort it takes to completely remove. It also failed to remove half of the virii it detected.
I've used avast and it's at least somewhat decent as far as actually removing virii goes, but like all AV it's a giant resource hog. These days I only use AV on a "by-need" basis without realtime protection - haven't seen a virus in one and a half years (and that one was a trojan in a keygen - should have known better)

Actually, the world's best virus protection is to never allow your computer any communication with anything, in any shape or form. Often unplugging your ethernet cable and disabling your wifi is enough.
There's always a balance to security and usability. I like to think Linux shifts that balance far more into usability's favor.

The issue about being careful what you click is hacked/deleted sites, though.
Eg: a few years ago, I visited a french TI website called TI-Center that I did not visit for a long while. I was global moderator there and I wanted to see if the author was still around. However, when I arrived on the forums and guestbooks, I got infected by malware because the site has been hacked. In such cases it's hard to tell. I had the same problem happen when I visited WikiTI once, back before BrandonW started hosting it. Yes, viruses on WikiTI.
i went 2 years with out virus protection and never got a virus just by using safe net skills such as avoiding risky sites and such
i personally prefer avg as my antivirus of choice the free version is ok but lacking IMO go with avast for free its much better
also have heard alot about microsoft security essentials or something like that cant remember if it was free or how good it was though
