What are the best free antivirus programs you can install on your computer? And does it also protect from other dangers (i.e. worms, trojans, etc.)?

Here is a recent review. I use AVGFree and MS-Security Essentials (two different computers); they do identify worms and trojans.

Always a good idea to boot up in Safe Mode (F8 key during power up) and run a scan there every so often.

It's also a good idea to use a web-based anti-virus scan from time to time.
A couple good options: TrendMicro Housecall or BitDefender Online Scanner

I run AviraPersonal and it seems to work great.
