http://www.av-comparatives.org/av-vendors/ - (list below)

seems Bit-Defender is the engine behind a large amount of products... if Ashampoo uses Emsisoft & Bit-Defender then it should be a really good product - also HitmanPro (Bit-Defender, Ikarus, Emsisoft) & QiHoo  (Avira + Bit+Defender), of course you need a decent CPU to run these "dual-engines" as they can be demanding

anyway - when it comes to free AV's :

Immunet is a free AV and uses Bit-Defender engine :)

Zone-Alarm has a free AV+Firewall suite and it uses Kaspersky engine :)

Baidu is a free AV and uses Avira aswell as its own and scores higher (2nd Place) than Avira on AVC's March File Detection test :) - BUT scores extremely high on False Positives :( in fact upong scanning my computer it found 7 infection..all of which got a full bill of health from VirusTotal which scans the files with 52 security programs...one of them was even Microsofts Office Removal Tool - but still its best to have something 'flagged' then make a decision, than letting real viruses through the net!

Digital-Defender uses Sophos engine (which is reputable) and is also free :)

Lavasoft has a free AV and uses Bit-Defender engine :)
