    What version expires in 1 month?

    AVG Ver.6 is free for personal use. If you like the AVG you have then go to their site and get the free version. It doesn't expire and updates are free as well.

    online, up to date, and legit... you will need activex downloads enabled to use but you wont have to install any software other than possibly a few definitions files.

    Avast 4! Antivirus. I happen to love this because it's fast, unobtrusive, and has an extremely small footprint for all that it does.

    Im using free Avast too, it often comes ahead of AVG in reviews, but some prefer AVG. Some complain Avast uses to much memory but its mostly virtual memory, so its not an issue. My laptop (crappy & slow) runs fine with resident scanning set at high without slowing it down at all.
    .Auto updates 1-3 days
    .Scans email, messengers, files opened/written to, startup files
    .Can also scan memory block (different to files in memory) using ashquick.exe command (see avast site) Panda couldnt do that.
    .Easy interface
    .Full thorough scan as quick as Panda
