Just don't browse unsafe websites and avoid junk on P2P networks and don't use IE 6 as your browser. Free and simple.

I've gone for years on a single Windows XP install with no anti-virus and never been infected. And I checked to just prove my point.

According to me, AVG Anti virus is the best because it detects mostly all the Virus if update it regularly.AVG Anti Virus is really a nice Anti virus i using it from last 2 years, no problem of virus and it dont crate any problem with my PC run speed.
