AVG Anti Virus Free Edition and Avast Home Edition are the best free ones. I like them better then norton personaly. you can get both at download.com (affiliated with cnet.com so you know its a safe download). They both get high ratings from users and the editors.

www.spybotsearchanddestroy.com another spyware program
www.zonelabs.com Free firewall (use only 1 firewall)

Avira AntiVir (free) is also a good AV program.

I also recommend MBAM. It scans for spyware and removes any infections that is found.

For free antivirus I don't think you can beat Avira.

Avira antivir personal edition and malwarebytes' antimalware are the best.
Use both of them.
