[SASAG] Free AV & Firewall

AVG 8 does fine.  It also seems to be one of the better free ones at being
detected by the OPSWAT AV detector engine/API used by many VPN vendors.
One feature I haven't found in many AV's is the ability to easily disable
the thing when you like.  Kaspersky makes that easy.

E.G., the VPN requires the client to run an Antivirus in order to connect.
 My experience is that AVG 8 is better detected than at least some of the
other free AV's.

The new beta Windows AV has also been well reviewed and appears to be well
detected.  I would look at that when it goes gold.
