If you're serious about security, it's worth investing in something more comprehensive, but if all you want is a free, lightweight malware shield, we have no hesitation in recommending AVG.

Addressed to nascent startups and companies yet to adopt Web RTC, this binary form freeware is available for Windows, Linux or Mac desktop OS.
This browser plug-in integrates with three major internet search engines (Google, Yahoo!
and MSN), automatically scanning the pages that are returned as search results and highlighting potentially dangerous links before you click on them.
When we tested AVG 8 against a selection of contemporary malware, it identified 22 out of 28 threats, while the A-Listed Kaspersky Antivirus 7 spotted 24.
