Hello eminemvanillaice;

MSE, Avast Free and AVG Free are all good choices.
For malware checks look at SuperAntiSpyware or Malwarebytes.

And every so often use one of the online AV scanners to double check your AV software hasn't been compromised. Most of the major AV players websites have an online scanner.

Have been using AVG Free for over 3 years now and haven't had a problem yet.

I'd have to recommend Avast as an antirvirus and Malwarebytes as an antispyware thought Microsoft Security Essentials has some neat tricks up it's sleeve as well

Microsoft Security Essentials gets my vote.
