There are many. Every week someone asks the same question. I suggest doing a search and you will get all the info you ever need.

Some of the contenders are, Microsoft security essentials, ESET smart security, Avast, AVG, and many more. Everyone has a afavorite.

If you want a free one, I suggest Microsoft Security Essentials. It runs flawlessly with 7

All AVs, whether free or paid for, are only able to detect malware if the signatures are present in their databases. That is why it is especially important to ensure that your AV updates its database at least on a daily basis.

Please, guys, let's not turn his question into a place to show our favorite AVs. Everyone has different opinions, and no one will ever "win" one of these arguments.

Please read the link I posted above. Here it is again: What's the Best Anti-virus?

As do most of the other AV's....with the noted exception that others may not run as flawlessly or with as few system resources.

If there was a perfect product, we would all be using it.
