I have found Avast! to be a very good Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware program that doesn't drag your system down like some others.
One of the best features is the Boot-Time Scan that can scan for and remove malware before Windows completely starts and locks the file.
Recently in PC World, Avast was shown to have the least affect on system performance. (May 2010)
