Default Anti Virus

What are some good free anti-virus programs out? I know about AVG but I don't know if that's always the best. I have it and sometimes it doesn't update and they're saying that they aren't going to continue it next year or some shit so I was wondering if there are any better ones that i could download.

you should get the new version of avg if you want to use avg. Never tried it myself, but I heard it's a lot nicer than the older one.
I also like Avira AntiVir.

You really should learn to read things properly.

AVG 7.1 Free is being discontinued and replaced with AVG 7.5 Free (Vista compatible)

And Google is your friend

Results - Best free antivirus
Results - Best Antivirus

AVG is my favorite but Avira is also very good except for the annoying pop up window that comes up when you update telling you to upgrade to the premium version. I think that both Avira and AVG are probably the best free antivirus programs out there.
