Avira Anti-Vir
Best I've ever used, haven't tried nod32 though. I heard it's pretty good too.

btw, this should be in the security section

Is Avira free?

Right now, it's between Avira, NOD32, Avast, and AVG:

Second votes please :-)

http://anti-virus-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

Is that site reliable?

It says BitDefender, Kaspersky, and F-secure are top 3, in that order.

I have both NOD32 and Symantec Client Security Anti-Virus. NOD32 is probably the best anti-virus program ever. No problems with it at all, although it might take a couple of minutes to familiarize yourself with the options everything. Symantec Client Security is basically a normal Symantec Anti-Virus, but you don't need to suscribe to get updates and it's not as resource hogging.
