    What we should look for in an antivirus software is its detection rate, faster scans. less memory usage, price and the ease of use.

    Based on the factors that I mentioned, according to the Experts' Top Ten Antivirus Reviews, the antivirus softwares are listed as follows:

    1. BitDefender Antivirus http://www.bitdefender.com.au/

    2. Kaspersky Anti-Virus http://www.kaspersky.com/anti-virus_trial

    3. ESET Nod32 http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Security-Rel...

    4. AVG Anti-Virus http://free.avg.com/ww.download-avg-anti-virus-fre...

    5. F-Secure Anti-Virus http://www.f-secure.com/download-purchase/

    6. Trend Micro http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/Trend-Micro...

    7. McAfee VirusScan http://www.us.mcafee.com/root/downloads.asp

    8. Avast Antivirus http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

    9. NORTON Antivirus http://www.symantec.com/downloads/

    10. CA Antivirus http://shop.ca.com/virus/antivirus.aspx

    Among them, AVAST and AVG are two good free antivirus. Get them if you like, but I would recommend you one of the top three as they have no match with the others, even if you need to pay for them.

    Good Luck !!!

    Sorry but there is no free best anti virus. Be glad AVG wouldn't install on your machine. It sux. It's well known for letting Trojans walk right in. If you can't afford it right now you can still get the free 30 day trial of Kaspersky. I've been told that if you can delete all traces of it when the 30 days runs out then you can reload it again for another 30 days. But you have to get it all off of your machine before trying to reload it again. Kaspersky is the best on the market. You will not find any better. I've had close to a year. No infections of any kind.

    Whats is the best Free Virus protection software ?

    I trust AVIRA

    We have Avast 4.7 but it viris still come up and it says it cant move them to the chest or even delete them.

    When you get tired of fooling around with Free Anti-Virus

    programs go and buy either Kaspersky Internet Security 2009

    or NOD 32.

    Hi

    Avast is an excellent free antivirus. First I suggest you update to the newest version (4.8) and use the boot-time scan of 4.8 and quarantine anything it finds.

    After that scan with Superantispyware free, Malwarebytes Antimalware free, F-secure Blacklight and the Kaspersky AVP Tool.

    To keep your computer clean from malware, I suggest you stick with Avast. Occasionally scan with Superantispyware free and Malwarebytes Antimalware free, you can also scan with Spybot (and turn on the Immunization function).

    For browsing, you should use Firefox (with the Adblock Plus addon) or Opera instead of Internet Explorer or Safari - this reduces the chance of malware getting on your computer.

    For the best detection rate but limited features, Anti-Vir PE wins.

    However for a very good detection rate and lots of features, then AVG Free is the way to go.

    Avast is horrible and hard to use, I suggest you get rid of it.
