Any suggestions for a free, effective, trustworthy anti-virus system?

I had to uninstall my old spyware protector (Sunbelt Software Vipre) because it kept malfunctioning. I need a new one as soon as possible. Have you used any free anti-virus/spyware systems that don’t slow down your system too badly and that are trustworthy and effective?

Thank you so much!

    yeah theres plenty….and make sure you download them from a safe/trustworthy site such as as well…….go there download the free anti malwarebytes, and then you’re also going to want the free version of avg or avast anti-virus that they have on there as well.

    I would use Avast or MSE with windows firewall…Adding too many security software can definitely slow a machine down and no security setup will be 100% effective anyway…

    Avast! 5. Look no further.

    After the installation , you will need to register Avast! (Just open Avast! and click register now)

    A friend of mine set up several desktop machines each with a different antivirus program, AVG, Avast, Norton, McAfee, and Microsoft Security Essentials. We found that the most effective program out of the line up was Microsoft Security Essentials, followed by AVG and Avast. The free programs update their definitions twice as often as the leading subscription software. Microsoft Security Essentials also works seamlessly with Windows Firewall.

    Avast is a very effective free anti-virus, especially when combined with a top free firewall like Comodo:

    When you think you have really good friewalls & anti virus for FREE you actually don’t. Otherwise why are they free? You always get what you pay for and in your case that is nothing plus future trouble.

    i think avast is the best free anti-virus.
    look at this comparison between avira,avast and avg:
