    AVG has always done me well (http://free.grisoft.com) Although you may want to consider the pro version because technically you should be using that for a business, not that they're going to hunt you down.

    Avast is also good, although I can't personally vouch for it.

    If I were getting something for the firm's use I'd get an AV the boss people had heard of, like Norton or McAfee. Somebody is bound to introduce problems that no AV can block through basic stupidity, but as they used to say, nobody ever got fired for buying IBM. :hip:

    I'd stay far far away from both Norton and McAfee because they cause more problems than they're worth. Norton specifically, with problems earlier this year involving rootkits and users being unable to remove the software as well as being a resource hog, and McAfee just not doing its job.

    I've put all my clients on avg and my AV complaints have dissapeared. Granted its bad for my business, because their stuff isnt broken as often, but the customer is happy.

    Maybe give something CA eTrust a go? That's what we use in our corporate environment.
