What's the best free or close-to-free antivirus software? I'm running Windows Vista 64, soon to be Windows 7 64-bit. "Best" means balance between decent security performance versus bogging down my machine.

TIA!

I use Eset NOD32. I have no idea how much it costs, but I assure you that it is excellent. Nyax will also attest to how excellent this software is.

Oh yes. NOD32 rocks. There's a whole thread on it here:

I <3 Nod32...best to buy it online from the Eset website. MicroCenter, Frys, etc. will also carry retail boxes.

NOD32 is well worth the cash. Other AntiVirus software are like virii unto themselves. I can't even tell NOD32 is running.

I bought one license and installed it on 5 PCs. I'm sure that's not what you're supposed to do, but if cost is a concern being able to put it on all your PCs at home might help offset that.

ETA: It's if you want me to buy you a copy and send you the key (the key is all you need). While the listing says 3.0 you can download and install 4.0 using the same key.

ETA2: While I haven't seen the special in a while, NewEgg will periodically drop the price to $20. When that happens I buy a disk and put it in my desk drawer until my subscription expires and then use the cheap key to renew. While you might be on more of a time crunch right now, you should be able to count on $20 renewals in the future.

I still use Avast at home on all my computers as it's free and a close second to ESET, but ESET is by far the best out there that you can buy. Trust me, I've worked with almost every single one out there in my work. But at the end of the day, any virus scanner is better than none :P

You guys are awesome. Thanks!

Zed: When I go to that link it shows $40. Maybe it knows I'm a scheming covert canuck. If you can get a code for $30, that would be awesome, please. If it's back up to 40, no biggie, I'll buy a copy online tomorrow. Thanks man.

I strongly suggest Completely free, extremely light-weight and finds more actual viruses than any AV software I've had (even ones I've paid for).

The only downside to Avira is that, since it's free, it pops up 1 ad window ever 24 hours. I haven't found it to be too annoying and they only advertise the paid version of their software. No penis pills.
