It's a new year, and a new poll for Definitive Best Antivirus. The 2012 thread can be found here.

This is a poll for best Free antivirus, there is a separate thread for paid antiviruses here.

Any questions or software that I've missed, please post here and I will update the thread.

I picked MSE of course. Malware Bytes is awesome too, but only really good using PRO version with real-time protection, which I use.
