I am going to Bootcamp Windows 7 32 bit.
Which free antivirus do you guys personally recommend?
I am using Avira right now
Directions on how to disable the "upgrade to premium" popup

Microsoft Security Essentials works for me.
+1 I would choose MSE also. Very slim and fast!
Add another +1 for MSE. So far, I have no complaints about it.
MSE gets my vote as well. No problems and it seems to be fairly lightweight.
MSE all the way, baby!
I too have switched to MSE. MS finally got AV right, and the pricen can't be beat.
MSE it is
MSE for me too.
ALYAK that free for personal use would be the best. Only problem is that this antivirus software is from Korea, but positive side is "Free." I have been using this and very pleased. I had 24 serious viruses and Tech tried to charge me $200's after he only removed 18 and wiped out a commercial software without telling me. I downloaded ALYAK and it found rest of those viruses and removed them wo any problem. I asked him why he removed the software and he argued back whether I had MS certified. Ha! I did not pay him a single penny. I strongly recommend you getting this.
Was using AVG but my vote is now for MSE. Easy to understand and use.
Another vote for MSE!
According to everything that I have read about it, it actually out performs most of the stuff you can buy. It has direct access to the Windows Kernal (since MS made it) and is very good at malware removal if something does get buy it.
AVAST free is good too....and it's not made by the same folks that make the OS....i.e. not trusting the fox to run the henhouse.
AVG! Since I use it I've never reinstalled windows because of a virus!
MSE all the way. The only other AV worth bothering with is Avira. Whatever you do, stay the hell away from the crapfest that is AVG.
My bad. Rather, it's not that Avira isn't free, it's just that you get a small popup whenever you update, but that's easily disabled.
There is a free Avira that I posted above

Works well for me.
I have MSE on one Win7 and Avira on the other - both working great.
MSE, Avast or Avira - All pretty good though Avira you have to hack slightly to get rid of the nagware to buy the full version.
ESET NOD 32 here.
Running Microsoft Security Essentials on several xp and 7 installs, and it seems to run fine. Now and then using Trend Micros online scanner to avoid putting all eggs in one basket...
