Avast, Avira, and Microsoft Security Essentials seem to be the most popular here at THF. Personally, I use and recommend Panda Cloud Antivirus. (For ongoing protection, that is. Malware removal, once you're already infected, is another story...)

+1 for Microsoft Security Essentials. Only complaint I have is that the name takes too long to type....

Hi sitham - It seems to be a personal preference, but it Microsoft Security Essentials is a great place to start. It is always free, so there is no risk to trying it out! http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

@ Herr_Koos - Ha ha, You can always type MSE!

Microsoft Security Essentials is great. Just make sure it doesn't run on startup

Honestly, I don't use any. I don't get viruses until someone else starts using my computer. The internet, like many other things, just requires good judgement. If you aren't downloading torrents, shady programs, or other *stuff*, you should be fine without.

Though safe commuting is always a good idea, no one is completely safe of viruses. As jefe323 said, you can pick up a virus by simply visiting a website (even if you think it's safe). Why not just download Microsoft Security Essential for free (it's 100% free) to make your computer more secure?
