I've used Symantec's Norton 360 for many years now and it works great overall. Personally, I stay away from free software, especially when it has to do with internet / PC security, though I do know some friends who use AVG.

You can get Norton 360 from online stores like Amazon or directly from Symantec online. I initially got mine from Amazon at a discount and then renewed it online annually. I just looked it up at Amazon and it's currently at a 57% discounted prices (as per the link above).

Norton 360 has a useful Firefox extension as well which securely stores passwords for various websites that one uses.

From my experience i recommend Avast (which I use at home) and Avira AntiVir (at work) - both free and good antivirus programs. Avast adds extension for rating sites as safe or not (like the WOT extension) Avira does not.
