    I dumped AVG Free last December after it allowed two of my computers
    to be infected. I ended up having to do a wipe and clean install of
    Windows XP on one of them.

    I now use Microsoft Security Essentials and am mostly satisfied. I've
    never been infected and it's very unobtrusive to use. Basically, set
    it and forget it. There are times, just like AVG Free, when it will
    hog CPU time, but not as often or as intensely as AVG Free.
