Check with your ISP
You should check with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to see if they offer you one free. Comcast offers Norton Security Suite free, AOL used to offer a free one (I don't know if they still do), and there're probably others too. A lot of folks like the free ones like MSE, AVG, and Avast; I've heard a lot of good things about all 3 and have personally used the free AVG for years with no problems on my desktops. I also have used the Norton Security Suite that I got free from Comcast on my laptop for the last year, and haven't had any problems with it. I'd caution against using the optional registry "cleaner" it has though. A lot of the trade magazines come out with ratings periodically, but I've noticed that every time they do, the top rated ones change from one time to the next. None of them will catch everything, so as some have already said, you have to think about what web sites you visit, what you download (I've never had a problem with download.com BTW), and what attachments you open.
It's really a lot like asking which is the best car. What's best for me might not be the best for you.
