If you ask me, NOD32 is hands down, the best anti-virus software. McAfee is decent at best, Norton isn't as good as it used to be. I'm not sure about Trend Micro though.

Theres also AVG and Avast! and both are available as freeware.

Here's a very good free antivirus software - AVG:

You will probably want to scan with multiple softwares to be the most effective. Also, make sure you scan in safe mode.
C2D E6600 | 4GB DDR2-800 | 9800GTX+ | Asus P5B-E | 150GB Raptor | 320GB 7200.10 | 750W Xigmatek PSU

if you want to pay for a program, NOD32 is the best there is. For free AV software, I recommend AVG free edition or Avast home edition. Both are very good in my opinion.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
