I recommend Avast free anti-virus.
I have been using it just over 2 years, it is very user friendly and has lots of features that most ‘paid-for’ anti-virus programs have.
Whilst Vipre anti-virus does protect, it does cost and doesn’t stand up to Avast, Avira or AVG, just to name a few free anti-virus programs.
Avast does have a paid version that offers a built in firewall, though you didn’t mention your Operating System, hence you may not really need the software firewall. The windows firewall works well with these free anti-virus programs.
Hope that helps.
Edit:The thumb was for the alleged allegation. :p
FP’s happen all the time.
