    Avast free is the overall best free AV. It has a pretty good detection rate, auto sandboxing, and cloud updating.


    You should also have MBAM, the free at a minimum, but the pro is suggested.


    Grey button for the free.

    If you want free then I recommend Avast , superantispyware and Malwarebytes. coupled with Comodo firewall They are all free for personal use . It is safe to use two anti-spy products but never use more than one A/V as it can cause conflicts. You should run A/V and anti spy weekly. After many years of using free A/V and anti malware I installed a Norton trial Internet security 2012 on my daughters and granddaughters computers.I always felt Norton was a huge resource hog but the latest version was vastly improved. So much so that after three months I have installed it on my computer which seems considerably more responsive. My choice now until something better comes along.

    Microsoft Security Essentials is the best free antivirus software, and it's also better than some payware products.
