Just reformatted and figured there is probably a better anti-virus program than I was using before. Free options only please!

I haven't found one that I'm happy with on its own, so I use a combination. AVG Free (you could also use Avast or something, I just prefer AVG), MalwareBytes, Spybot S&D, and Hitman Pro (only has a free trial). Occasionally something slips by one or two, but the others catch it. Hitman's great for rootkits, Spybot for registry hijackers, MalwareBytes and AVG for most other viruses.

I used AVG free for years and finally I bought it. I keep it updated and pay for 2 yr licenses now. However I still got hit with a tricky malware thing that told me that my cpu/fan was almost to the melting point (86 C)!!! It also made it look like everything in my C:\ was gone. Obviously not or I wouldn't have been able to boot up. Dorks! Anyway I recommend RKill to clean up your registry of any malware bits that may be hanging around.

I use Spybot S&D and Microsoft Security Essentials. They seem to work pretty well. Oh, and CCleaner.

That, and not clicking random links and going to suspicious websites and whatnot.
