Depends, but if you are happy to do online scans for the moment, I would say either
KasperSky - http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
or
TrendMicro - http://www.trendmicro.com/hc_intro/default.asp

Other wise, AVG free is good, and I don't know personally, but from reading similar threads on this topic a lot of people like the "AVAST" AV program.

I like AVG Free. It ranked in the highest in tests and I've never had a computer go down due to virsus' with it on. **knock on wood**

AVG Free definitely, I use it on my personal computers and we use it at work, definitely the way forward in Free Anti-Virus.

I think the site is: free.avg.com although I'm not sure, Google!
