    This spyware tool is the next gen antivirus which is recently gaining its popularity in the industry sector. Combofix is a very, very powerful tool and it can be very effective
    against malware and spyware even though it only scans for the most common
    spyware infections, leaving out thousands of less known but equally dangerous
    malware. The only problem with this software is that it does not have a GUI interface for users rather supports a DOS interface which the users need to figure out. ComboFix Download

    Hitman Pro:

    This extremely sophisticated malware detection program developed by SurfRight B.V has an excellent feature of behavioural analysis and cloud computing for the detection of malicious objects. First it detects viruses and other files that have a suspicious behaviour (behaviour analysis) and sends them then to the scan cloud via the Internet. The malicious files are detected in the scan cloud where these are removed by Hitman Pro 3. As the various virus scanners are not installed on the local computer, but in the scan cloud on Internet, there is a very low system load. Downloads - SurfRight

    Avira Antivir Personal:
    As a free antivirus, this product is worth to be used atleast once. The personal software is provides for free while the pro version for industry use comes at a price quite like AVG. Like most antivirus software, it scans disks for malware and also runs as a background process, checking each opened and closed file. It can detect and possibly remove rootkits. It also performs Internet updates (daily by default) in which it opens a window, with an advertisement suggesting that the user purchase Avira AntiVir Premium or Avira Premium Security Suite.

DriveSentry provides a realtime and on demand virus scanner, and uses four methods to determine if an application contains a virus before allowing it to run. The four methods include Whitelisting, Blacklisting, Heuristics and Community Statistics. It is also a very efficient antivirus. http://www.drivesentry.com/default.aspx

    This antivirus does not have a great popularity but it does have some features which really makes it special. It's a full antivirus and antispyware program and updates on a daily basis. Digital-defender Antivirus supports Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. If you really want to have an antivirus which does its work pleasantly without even disturbing you or slowing down your computer then you ought to try this software. It will surely make your job much easier and efficient. http://www.digital-defender.com/digital-defender-antivirus-free/

    This list of free antivirus will surely provide you with some of the best anti viruses available. Just get hold of any one of them and you will not get a chance to complain at all. Though I would prefer the first three antiviruses as the best among all but still all the entries in the list do have their own sections of advantages.
