    Sophos is good. I also use malwarebytes.

    Avast is going to have a version 5.0 out soon, it's one of the best free's. I had Norton 2010 until it expired, was very good and unnoticable, didn't slow the system down that I could tell. I now have McAffee because if you are a Bank of AMerica customer you can get it for a year free, I'm pretty happy with it but don't think I'd spend the $70 for it if it wasn't free. I spent a LONG time looking at all the independent comparison sites to make a decision, and there are some bad choices out there, but Avast, Antivir, Norton, McAffee, and to a degree AVG seemed to be the universally chosen ones.

    If you are using a windows machine, Avast is good for viruses and malware and spybot is good for adware.

    Both free.
