Actually, according to the lastest antivirus studies (they are around, just look for them), Microsoft Security Essentials (aka Microsoft Antivirus) is more effective than AVG Free.The best antivirus around are still the usual suspects: Kaspersky, Symantec, McAfee and NOD32. Those 4 have been holding their grounds on the top 5 positions for the past few years. Microsoft's has been steadily climbing ranks, and is already showing in the top 5 in a few tests, but is still nowhere near as good as the other 4 I mentioned.

If the cracker uses his own virus/trojan, you are out of luck with most (if not all) of the anti-virus in the market today. Besides, a cracker can get most of the anti-virus and just modify their trojan until none of the most popular anti-virus picks it; heuristics (which is what they use to get unknown viruses) is not a totally trustworthy means of detection.
