Default New Antivirus?

My McAfee antivirus protection expires in 5 days and I wanted to know if there are any good free antivirus out there, or what do you think is the best antivirus/firewall? I think McAfee has done a good job, but I just want to try a free one.

many antivirus programs will conflict with each other, but in my experince avg free and avast free antivirus work together seamlessly and provide a better virus defense then mcafee or norton ever did for me.

im using avg free edition and zone alarm firewall instead of mcafee cause mcafee is a resource hog lol but avg and zone alarm seem to work pretty well

Well, since someone made a whole new thread on this, I guess I'll ask too.

I got all the free one's down... Avira, AVG... so if there's a paid one that's worth the money, which should I get?

I'm wondering, for spyware, which is better: Webroot Spysweeper or SunServer Counterspy?

Never heard of Trend Micro... McAffee, Norton, BitComet Defender, and Nod32 are the only ones I know.
