Have you seen Immunet Protect in your search? It is a free community-centric, cloud AntiVirus software- fairly new, but free and so far users seem happy with it. Software doesn't conflict with other AV programs, i.e. McAfee or Microsoft, so if you'd like you can run the two in tandem.
It's pretty cool-- Every time someone in the Immunet's community encounters a threat everyone else in the community gains protection from that same threat in real time (no virus definition updates!). Here's a link-- check it out: http://www.immunet.com/

The things coming up often are:
I have never used any of these before and I don't know which is best.
What do you guys suggest and please give a reason.
