I've been using Avast for 6 or 7 years now. Only one or two false-positives. The only complaint is that in earlier versions, occasionally the web filter service would hang, take all your system resources, and prevent you from sending or receiving any web traffic. Because of how virus scanner processes are designed to run, you can't kill the hung process manually, and have to reboot.

It hasn't done it in several months, though, so they may have fixed it with an update.
