Free, yes, really free(!) Office Suite. Similar in look & feel to older Microsoft Office but with plenty of functionality
and all the programs you should need. What's the catch? You have to download it yourself, that is the only catch. I have been using this

supporting applications (including a maths formula editor), all at a price you can afford!
Obviously you are encouraged to contribute, but there is no obligation.

Avira (Very good but currently doesn't scan downloaded emails in the free version)
Avast (good quality and with email scanning)

Comodo (relative newcomer, but good firewall - don't recommend the anti-virus side as yet, if you are getting this, just install the firewall.)
Please always read the licence agreement for whichever program you choose, some are only free for personal use. Other programs are available (also free) along with a raft of paid for versions (see below) for those who don't qualify for a free licence.
