Microsoft Security Essentials



Version two has now been released. It adds a number of interesting features such as a new heuristics engine and network traffic inspection (Win Vista/Win 7 only). It also integrates with IE and Windows Firewall to provide greater protection.

This is still free to home users and small businesses (10 seats). It is probably one of the best lightweight AV solutions, however whilst Avast! is far more feature rich and capable for many people MSE is more than sufficient.

If you're using v1 of MSE it should have been automatically updated for everyone else:
