AVG is a good choice.  They have a free version with free updates:

McAfee requires that you be running IE (!) 5.x or higher, and all of the rest give me a "404 Page not found error." Of course, I tried accessing them via Mozilla 1.7 from a box running RedHat 9.0.....*grin*

I woud've proposed AVG if not for his "Online" requirement, which I didn't really understand.

But now that other people have, AVG.

And another vote for AVG. Never had one single problem with it.
