I've been using Sophos' freebies on my Macs, but the latest OS X updates seemed to have some conflict that kept hanging everything. I uninstalled, and tried ClamXAv, and it worked fine, but was a bit clunky, and lacking . I'm now trying Avast's freebie, and it seems to be lightweight and trouble-free (so far). Plenty of free options, so no excuse not to be protected.
