    I've been using the home version of Avast (free) for a couple of years, lots of features, not a resource hog and been working well.

    AVG free is great, it's what I recommend to almost everyone.

    Another option - If you download Google Pack, you get a free 6 month subscription to Norton Antivirus 2005. Though I'm not a firm believer in Norton's capabilities, if you are looking for a familiar name brand for youself or someone you know, it's an easy way to give piece of mind.
