How do you know you dont get viruses if you dont have AV to tell you?
Free, I'd use MS essentials, because it runs completely in the background.
I use McAfee atm though because I get it free from BT broadband and that runs in the background too.
I'm pretty confident saying they all near enough do the job well. I just dislike the ones that over-do scanning, and let you know all the time that they're scanning this and scanning that. That's my one complaint about McAfee, although this BT one seems ok, but every time you plug a memory stick in it gives you the option to scan it, which maybe ok for some people but just annoys me slightly.
I find the flaws that they all have dont actually affect their ability to block viruses, just annoy you slightly
