Is there a free anti-virus program for my computer?

Can someone tell me if there is a good anti-virus program/internet security for my computer? I have Norton, but several people have told me that it’s just so-so. Is there anything else I can download that would work? Thanks!

    Free AVG is really good, but it’s free for only a trial of 30 days. Also Malwarebytes is really good.

    I would suggest you to use Avast, Avira or AVG (in decreasing order of preference).

    All these three have free personal edition antiviruses.

    Avast: http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

    Avira: http://www.free-av.com/

    AVG: http://free.avg.com/

    Yes it is go for the free one of AVG and only download from CNET as it’s a great download site and it’s heck a safe and it’s the only one i will use as i got screwed over on other sites before.Just look for the 8.5 version for free and go to cnet and in about 30 min or less your in Business.It captures viruses ‘ trojans and worms and gets them where they belong’ virus vault and leave them in 30 days before deleting to take all the power off and then the die.

    Yes susie there is … Avira is what i use there is a free version which has higher detection that most of the pay ones even . you can download it here http://www.free-av.com/ Another good free one is Avast you can download it here http://download.cnet.com/Avast-Home-Edition-Free-Antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.html..

    Avira is still my favourite though as it uses up hardly any resources on the computer in basic terms it does not slow your computer down But avast comes close second …. …Stay away from AVG it is highly overrated and not as good as it used to be .

    Only single antivirus cannot help u out in tough situations ,
    You need a combination of softwares to help protect ur PC .
    Here is the combination that I use
    Avast antivirus > Malwarebytes > Super Antispyware > Comodo Firewall .

    u can use AVG or Avira FREE in place of Avast

    U can get the above on following addresses –
    Avast – http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html
    AVG – http://www.free.avg.com/
    Avira – http://www.free-av.com/

    Malwarebytes – http://www.malwarebytes.org/

    SuperAntispyware – http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html

    Comodo Firewall – http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/

    These apps work in combo to protect ur PC , and provide rock solid protection against viruses ,and all are free !

    Good Luck
