There is no BEST when it come to antivirus software. Each anti virus software has its own strength and weaknesses, and has its own unique features compared to other antivirus software. Some anti virus consumed too much of system resources which slows down your system significantly. Some are light on resources but does not provide adequate protection and lacking some important feature that an excellent antivirus software must have. Some are compatible with Windows 7, others are not. As a user, you must weigh on which of these are important to you and decides which avntivirus software DO fits your needs. In some cases, you may even decide if you go for PERFORMANCE or PROTECTION. Antivirus software runs on dual or quad core systems BUT some may not work on windows 7 because of compatibility issues. As a rule, you must update your antivirus protection software regularly in order to achieve good protection. Any antivirus software that is out of date is almost useless. I could suggest Avast antivirus, it has a lot of nice and useful features with automatic update of its virus signatures once it is available and it does not slows down your system. Give it a try. Please go to the antivirus manufacturer's website and check for its details before deciding on what antivirus software you use. Thanks and goodluck!

Yes, you can. Just go to www.download.com or www.avast.com, then just select free version..You can use the free version for 1year, all you must do is to register it using your email address. I am using this Avast version now, actually, and I am satisfied with its performance. If you plan to go for a paid version you can upgrade it anytime. Give it a try, you may like it! Goodluck!

I don't think there is no best,but have better one,there is not a kind of antivirus software that can stop every virus,so we have to be careful when we suffer from the net.If you don't want to pay for a antivirus software Avira-AntiVir is a good one,Avast is also a good choose.Hope you enjoy them.Remember you'd better install only one antivirus software.

Hi seljuk_crusader! Try Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is a free antivirus software product created by Microsoft that provides protection against different types of malware such as computer virus, spyware, rootkits and trojan horses for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
