I've experimented with quite a few free Antivirus before settling on a paid version. AVG isn't as good as Avira which in turn isn't as good as Avast. Download MalwareBytes as well.

^This. Big fan of Avast. I use paid, but free is just as good. Like its been mentioned get Malwarebytes anti-malware as well, hell I would even get Spybot too. Run all 3 once every 2 months.

Yes, Avast is definitely better than AVG, plus AVG can add considerably to Windows startup time on some systems, I've proved that while fixing a friends PC that was taking ages to bring up Windows after he had installed AVG. I uninstalled AVG and installed Avast instead. Startup time back to normal.

Another I can recommend is Comodo Antivirus which I run on three computers. Never had any issues with it & never had an infection:

It just proves that you don't have to pay for good virus protection unless you want to feel superior and have money to burn.

It won't, ran it for a year on my secondary system (old OEM) with 2GB of RAM, no issues there.
