  • Avast! Home Edition

    Available in Free and Paid Professional Editions.

    Avast! Home Edition is also an excellent free antivirus. Avast has the most features, with full real-time capabilities, including web, e-mail, IM, P2P and network shields, as well as boot-time scanning. It's also got few false positives. Avast is light on resources and is also the only antivirus to continue support for older Windows platforms, although this will be dropped in the upcoming version 5. Avast can be set to automatically remove malware through the use of their Silent Mode ("Customize" under the detailed settings for On-Access Protection Control).

    On the other hand, Avast has slightly lower detection rates than AntiVir. And like AntiVir, it also requires periodic re-registration, whereas MSE and AVG Free do not.
