Another Free Antivirus Application

There are a couple of free AV apps out there already, but it's great to have choices. (Unlike anti-spyware and anti-adware apps, it's inadvisable to have more than one AV program on your machine because they tend to interfere with one another.) Just added to the mix is Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic. I ditched Norton after many years because its memory footprint was of bigfoot proportions. I now use Zone Alarm Security Suite, which is not free, but my wife's and my kids' machines use one of the free apps. They work great and I'll probably stop paying for something I can get for free very soon. Check it out here.
