Next best? <grin>  Don't you mean a better choice?  I like Avast,

I favour Avira and have had no problems since I changed from AVG which was
my favourite before it bloated itself...

Is there a free version of Avira?  I don't need a firewall as I have a
hardward firewall in my home network router.  On the site, all I see
is paid version that includes the firewall - am I missing something?

Lack of email scanning in the free version is a bit of a killer though (and
yes i have read the articles claiming email scanning to be pointless), it
also doesnt have scheduled scanning in a default installation, and annoying
pop up...

(The free version won't scan your emails.)
Unless you are using Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes (MAPI or VIM),
scanning email is worthless.
