Avast is my personal fav. Never been much of a fan of MSE or AVG.

+1 for MSE :)

Free, plus easily updates at same time during Windows update.

MSE, unless you're running Win8 in which case it's already there.

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.

MSE it's light on resources and good on stopping/cleaning crap there are better paid anti virus programs but for free you can't go past MSE

I'm surprised MSE leads by such a margin considering the thrashing it received a month or so ago.

Why didn't you mention Unthreat? It's my favorite, that's why I voted for Other. It's free and easy to use and from my experience it's better than many of the above..

MSE+Condom

While that's certainly one of the safest approaches, the latter can make the process of user interaction quite displeasing, especially in some usage scenarios.

OT: I ditched MSE for NOD32, but if I was to 'go free' again I'd certainly use MSE.
