    What are your performance measures to define "best" in each category, otherwise all you are going to get is a list of people's personal favorites.

    Well, I suppose for video players:
    What plays the most amount of video files, and good subtitle support. Oh, and features.

    For antivirus protection, NOT just scanning for viruses, and the like. I'm talking about proactiv protection; how the program would cope if a virus were to be installed.

    And for best codec pack, whichever one allows the most playback amount of video files.

    Welcome, TheNewbAvenger, to Major Geeks.

    Probably not exactly what you are after, but a good place to start is the "Must Have Free downloads" at http://www.majorgeeks.com/page.php?id=20
    for lots of good FREE stuff.

    Your best bet for free anti-virus would be avast. Paid anti-virus is definitely Kaspersky. K-lite has the best codec pack I've used.
