    I read that Bitdefender has the highest ranking. Are any of you using it, and how do you like it? Thanks.

    Some good review sites that aren't trying selling something.

    Avast doesn't get reviewed in all of the reviews.

    The latest version of Microsoft Security Essentials (version 2) is very new and not in many reviews yet but does even better than the older version. It has the fewest conflicts. Avast has about the most features for a free one. Avira is excellent but sometimes has some false positives. AVG doesn't rate as well as those three. Bit Defender rates at top of Virus Bulletin. I think it has good detection it often falls behind in other tests for removal. For the computer I have a wireless connection, Avast is about the only one that will promptly update. My computer on Ethernet doesn't have update problems with MSE or Avira. Those don't check for updates as often as Avast does though.
