    Good ones are Avira PE and Avast Home Edition
    Try to check out their capabilites of catching malware
    http://www.av-comparatives.org/ -> Comparatives
    (although it's not that up to date, but may still be worth the shot)

    Avira PE seems like it has better detection but way less feature than Avast free

    I'm happy with my avast! home version! Give it a try, if you like it, keep it, if you don't like it, try another free antivirus program.

    I recommend Avira AntiVir PE Classic for free Anti-Viruses;
    and it has quite a bit of features for being free. :)
