I favour Avira and have had no problems since I changed from AVG which was
my favourite before it bloated itself...

Is there a free version of Avira? I don't need a firewall as I have a
hardward firewall in my home network router. On the site, all I see
is paid version that includes the firewall - am I missing something?

Lack of email scanning in the free version is a bit of a killer though (and
yes i have read the articles claiming email scanning to be pointless), it
also doesnt have scheduled scanning in a default installation, and annoying
pop up...
