1. Avast! Free Antivirus: I have kept this antivirus at the first place not because of it is best but it has the most sophisticated virus database. Its updates are easily available and it often seen as the biggest competitor to other antivirus programs.

But there is one draw back also as it need you to register first to their website to use this free software… (though it is a matter of question almost every site in the world offering free product needs to you register first.)… other wise it is a good product to try out.

8. Avira AntiVir Personal : One of the best pick if you are looking for simple to use and light on Antivirus software. It works perfectly fine to detect virus, spyware, rootkit threats.

Few false positives about Avira is that it does not inlude E-mail scanner in free version, but if you open any infected E-mail, it comes again into action. And with every update, it shows advertisements but you have choice to disable them. I still believe that Avira is strong Antivirus program and you should try it. (Download link…)
