Most will recommend Avast or Avira of the free ones. Personally I use Avira and have done for a year or so now with no problems, though I have no experience with the newly released version 10 (I will stick with V9 till support runs out, thus avoiding any early bugs or issues the new version may have)

Hi Kay, welcome to the forums. I use all these free security programs:

 

Avast http://filehippo.com/download_avast_antivirus/

Mbam http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Spybot http://www.safer-networking.org/en/spybotsd/index.html

Time Freeze http://www.wondershare.com/pro/time-freeze.html

 

I feel very secure, especially when connected with Time Freeze turned on. :)

Same as Kroozer's post 6 above, except using Avira on the older, slower laptop. No Spybot on the laptop, 'cause the tea timer runs heavy. Spyware blaster on both. Spywareguard on the desktop. :-)

 

edit: forgot the links, but they are all in that thread Andavari cited.
