Computer Assocaites ezAntiVirus (free trial) 30 dyas, but they were giving a year...dunno if they still are.

If you don't have a firewall, try ezArmor (friewall and anti-virus).

I use Avast Home. As to which one is best...the BEST A/V is NOD32 according to this: Virus Bulletin Liz

I use AVG, and have been using it for quite sometime. I have never encountered any problems at all with it. I recommend you at least give it a try, but in the end just go with the one that you enjoy the most.
