in my opinion theres no good free antivirus , anyway other free antiviruses are avast/antivir/clamwin , as far as i know they didnt discontinue the free version, please define "not working", if you cant run it or the resident shield dont work no more or you cant get it to update then your pc is most likely infected by some spyware. if thats the case then scan online on these sites:
also get hijackthis http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html
click "do a systemscan and save a logfile" and when done open a thread on the hijackthis section http://www.techist.com/forumdisplay.php?forumid=126 and copy & paste the log

Check out that Software Megathread. It has many options. But i have to agree with Jeremy that there is no Great "Free" AV. They are good but i have found payed ones that are better.

But of the free i have found Avast! to be among the best personally.
