    AVG is the best by far and its free, plus it doesnt take much to make it the full version

    by the way, AVG is good, i use it.. but its def not the best out there. it does miss tons of stuff, as ive tested in the past, but at the same time, not one single virus checker is going to pick up everything anyway.

    A good easy one that picks up more stuff online is this one:

    proven to pick up more than avg, so i'd use both
