I'm using Avast for more than 4 years and I am quite satisfied with its performance. At the end it's all a matter of personal preference.

I've been using Avast Free Antivirus for years and haven't had a problem since installing it. In fact, I run it on several computers at home.

 

I know other people who swear by AVG Antivirus.

 

Here's an article exploring some of the free offerings.

My personal favourite is AVG  because it does what it says and i like the fact that it's as unobtrusive as possible.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder in all things. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, so you'll have to make up your mind after looking at the feature list.

You might do better, however, to consider abandoning windows altogether and moving to Linux instead. If you are a gamer, it'd be tough. But if not then Linux could serve you well.

See my blog Desktop Linux Reviews for some good ideas for desktop Linux distributions that might work well for you:

I agree that Avast! and AVG are among the best choices. I have used both, and while I still have AVG on my personal machine, I think Avast! may be the slightly better. AVG is a bit of a resource hog, and I've had a couple false positives recently. It's still good enough that I haven't switched from AVG to Avast!, but if I was picking one at the moment, I would probably choose Avast!.
