What is the best free anti-virus software that you guys know of? I am running Avast and it's not catching a worm I have. I would run Mcafee but I really don't feel like paying for the software right now. So, like I said, what free anti-virus software catches the most stuff?

*Thanks*

Also, download a program called Malwarebytes and use it regularly to scan for malware, adware, worms, and trojans.

There is a free version, which is really all you need

did you try doing a bootscan with avast? That should remove any problems you are having.
I have used avast for 7 yrs now and it has always removed any problems..
If you had Norton or McAfee before you installed avast, I hope you used the uninstallers from their websites, if you just uninstalled them from add/remove no av or firewall will work properly

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
