    If you are running on a Mac then I would just suggest letting Mac OS X take care of it self, no extra software needed.

    If your on a Windows machine then I would suggest Kaspersky.

    If you really feel like you need one, ClamX AV isn't bad. And, it's free.

    If you're talking about windows then I suggest Avast, its free, just after the first 2 months you have to register on their website, and then re-register every 12 months. It has lots of features and options, I've been using it for about 6 months now. Also, if you want a firewall I suggest Sygate, lots of option with it, etc...

    Yeah - no real need as of now to run such software on an Apple computer running Mac OS X.
