I just did a full reinstall of Windows and AVG annoys me anymore but I have been with them so long I really don't know who to go to now. I run adblock plus/noscript on Firefox and my AVG never really picked up anything anyways but just scan every once in a while, I just want to know if there was a new king of free.

Why not try an all in one security suite like Comodo CIS the free download is on the left hand side. http://personalfirewall.comodo.com/ The other is an offer for 24/7 support which is not neccessary as they have a very helpful forum, https://forums.comodo.com/comodo_internet_s...ity_cis-b125.0/ Read the reviews below for confirmation. The latest version is the best one yet.
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3, CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 450 Processor, Memory: OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz,Graphics: PowerColor HD 5750 1GB GDDR5,
PSU: Corsair 430W CX PSU 4x SATA 1x PCI-E, Hard Drive:Samsung SpinPoint F3 500GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache.

Hello jon51,

Another one to consider is Microsoft Security Essentials. Works great, free and is very user friendly.
