Yes, the free AVG is good, as is the free MS Security Essentials.

Just avoid the all around type products like Norton 360, that IMO take too much CPU power and time and don't really do anything better.

Avast is free and effective, it scans your downloads for viruses (unlike AVG) and also includes anti-rootkit and anti-spyware, it can also run a boot scan.

To be honest the best free antivirus I've found is Unthreat Antivirus so maybe you should try that. It doesn't jam my computer when running and it was really easy to configure and install.
