I have personally used Avast since it was first introduced years ago and have not used another one since. it's fast, sleek, and updates are downloaded automatically. 

I have also used the paid version and it runs like the free version, just has a few more options available, but for the normal daily user, Avast Free is the perfect no-cost solution to preventing Viruses on your PC or MAC.
