Hands Down Best Antivirus for Windows XP/Vista/7 (It's Free!)

Antivirus products come and go at an alarming rate. At this current juncture one of the best antivirus solutions (which I might add is FREE!) is a Microsoft product. Go figure! A free antivirus product produced by the operating system creator for that operating system. Makes sense right? As a result this product has one of the fastest scanning engines out there. In my experience I have had computers protected by an enterprise version of Trend Micro or Symantec get infected by a virus. One those same computers I would install Microsoft SE and kiss the virus good bye! Anyway, this software is called Microsoft Security Essentials and is free for home use or for up to 10 computers in a small business setting. An enterprise option is also available. Microsoft SE is for Windows XP, Vista, and 7 only. Sorry 95, 98, 2000, and ME. Before you install this software please make sure you uninstall any existing antivirus products. Having more than one AV product will result in system instability.
Enjoy!

I dont have antivirus softwere to protect my coputer and I want to download some from net.


I suggest you Avast antivirus, the free version. It's a lightweight antivirus, reliable, stable and free. You can download it from this official link. There are some more free antivirus but in my opinion Avast is the best solution for a normal user.
