Where can I get free anti-virus software on the Internet?

I’ve noticed my computer is running slower and the Windows Live One Care icon is displayed at the bottom right-hand corner.I’ve tried AVG software,but doesn’t prove effective.Is there a website for free downloads of anti-virus software and gives a better performance?

    Look on Download.com, the popular downloads are good. Also search on http://www.zdnet.com/ they have everything with reviews too.

    PC User Magazine ran a test recently where they tested all the major AV products on test machines throwing every virus under the sun at them. The free edition of Avast was the second best performer overall (behind just NOD32 which is a paid-for service). It was well ahead of AVG. So try that. Bitdefender offers a free online service which you can use as a backup without all the hassle of a local installation – you just need to make sure you visit that site with Internet Explorer rather than Firefox etc

    Because free programs are never completely as secure as the programs you are paying for I always recommend not to install either AVG free or Avast free, but one of those 2 in combination with 2 other programs.
    AVG free
    http://free.avg.com/
    or
    Avast free
    http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.ht

    Then the 2 programs you should install togehter with one of the above.

    Threatfire is an anti virus, that can be installed next to any other anti virus program on the same computer
    http://www.threatfire.com/

    There is a lot of mal ware you have to protect your pc against.
    This is a very good program, that completely runs in the background
    http://www.comodo.com/boclean/boclean.ht

    When you do not have a good firewall yet, you could install this one
    http://www.pctools.com/firewall/

    Installing these programs, will not use any extra RAM or CPU usage.

    Your computer will be very well protected and it does cost you nothing

    If you look into
    http://www.download.com
    you will see various Antivirus programmes.
    Free AVAST and free AVIRA are the best two but my preference without doubt is AVAST.
    Simple but effective and 10 times better than AVG.
