Avast Free Home Edition has a higher detection and removal rate than Norton 2007. I use it and have had no problem. It detected all the viruses, mostly from torrent

Big No on Norton

Paid > Symantec 10 Corporate

Free:

AVG
Avast

There are many many more. For both paid and Free.
Sure someone will hit them all.

ZoneAlarm is also a good one. There's a paid and a free version.
