I have recently been using AVG free but I think that I could get a better free antivirus solution, do you know of any?

I think AVG free is the best one out there at the moment, so I think your pretty secure. If you want another one to try just google "Avast!", it has a friendlier user interface but it can lag down your computer a bit.

AV Comparatives actually ranked AVG fairly low in their recent testing.

Microsoft Security Essentials, AVIRA, NOD32, F-Secure, (and many others) were all rated better. If you'd like to read their full antivirus report, here's the PDF: http://www.av-comparatives.org/images/stories/test/ondret/avc_report26.pdf

Either Microsoft Security Essentials, or Avast Antivirus.

For a highly extensive overview of currently available antiviruses, see AV Comparatives report for May 2010: http://www.av-comparatives.org/images/stories/test/ondret/avc_report26.pdf

All the statistics you could ever possibly want to know are in there. It can be a bit overwhelming, but you can check out their conclusions if you scroll straight to the bottom.

I don't like virus protection, because it slows down your computer. I prefer a more stable and higher secured operating system like OS X, or almost any version of Linux.

Currently use avast. It works well and uses less resources compared to AVG

(I currently have the scanner disabled and all startup items removed so the scanner is basically an on demand scanner in which I update before each use)

Panda Cloud AV. Small, rarely needs updating and 'just works'.

Plus it's a panda. Who could not love that?

As per my experience Microsoft Security and Immunet are very good antivirus software.
