The Antivirus Software category contains programs developed to detect and remove computer viruses and other virus-related software from users’ computers. Most software includes on-demand and scheduled antivirus scans. Many programs now include real-time antivirus protection and further spyware protection. Notable titles include AVG, Avira AntiVir, and Avast.
It is not always true to assume that Free software will not perform as good as Paid versions, it is not completely true only some part is true. The main thing to note is that all these free software will protect against all Viruses, but the difference between Free softwares vs Paid versions is that some of the features and functions provided to paid users such as automatic updates, full virus removal, faster performance, system optimization etc will be absent. But there are some Free antivirus programs which provide most of these important feature to its Free users. Here is the list of some the best Free versions of them.

Please note that most of these provide protection against only viruses efficiently and does not provide importance or completely does not provide protection against Other malicious programs such as Spyware, rootkits, and trojans. Other popular considerations are from Kaspersky, BitDefender, Norton from Symantec, ESET NOD 32, F-Secure, Avira and other paid antiviruses. But most of these antiviruses are very expensive. Please note against which Threats your installed software protection against and install other software for complete protection for you Computer systems. My other recommendations are for-
Ad-Aware Free Internet Security, Windows Defender for Vista or Win7 – There is no need for a separate spyware/malware based program until you find you are already infected, but even then 99.8% of the time Avira mentioned above blocks it.
Software firewall: Really only needed on laptops/netbooks/tablets that travel and use various networks, or home PCs that connect directly to the modem without being behind a NAT or router firewall.
Online Armor – Excellent program, but is a bit lacking when it comes to available “Advanced” options.
Comodo – I personally prefer the Comodo firewall but have also had VERY good luck and protection with Online Armor
