I put AVG Free on my relation's pc when I help them with computer problems. I've also used Avast on the Trinity Rescue Disk to try to clean PC's without booting Windows, but I've never used their Windows client.
Another vote for either AVG or Avast. I've used both extensively, installed them for many friends and co-workers. I've never been disappointed in either one, and never seen an infection on any computer that was kept updated.
Note that I've only used the free versions. The Pro versions just seem to add a lot of bloat that I don't need or want on my system.

Maybe I should give it a try. Does it pester the user with annoying pop-ups?
I've been using Avast for a couple of years and love it! When I recently installed it on my Win7 machine, I did start seeing popups, right after startup, just telling me it's been updated, or some such message. Not really annoying to me!
