What is the best free anti virus system to download?

I bought Norton 360 and it said it had a corruption. The support didn’t help at all and now i would like to know if anyone knows how to download a free anti virus system or security. Or if you know how to fix this problem on Norton 360 please tell me. Thanks

    I’d go with Avast Home Edition too, I’ve used it for years.
    You’ll need to use the Norton Removal Tool to completely remove all traces of Norton or the remaining pieces will cause you problems later.
    There’s a link for this in my profile.

    Very serviceable security can be had for free, its just not in a neat all-in-one “security suite”

    For good computer security you need to do 4 things.

    1. Run a firewall.

    2. Use a good anti-virus with real-time protection.

    3. Do a regular scan with a dedicated anti-spyware,

    4. Keep Windows and all you other installed software, 100% updated and patched with all important and security updates.

    My recommendations:

    1. For the home user of XP or Vista, Windows Firewall is adequate, even more so if one is using a router, which is a very good firewall in itself. Make sure your Windows Firewall is turned “on”.

    2. For your Anti-Virus……(Always use only 1 A-V…You must NEVER use more than one anti-virus, Even an expired anti-virus can cause a major conflict…did I mention that you MUST uninstall any and all, traces of your Norton 360?)

    I would suggest Avast, the newest version 4.8. Avast now includes anti-virus, some anti-spyware capability and anti-rootkit components. And all for the low low price of free. You can get it here:

    3. For your Anti-Adware and Anti-Spyware needs…

    They have a free version.

    4. Use Secunia PSI to insure that all your software is kept always updated and patched against vulnerabilities that are often exploited to compromise computers. Very important.

    Its free as is everything else here.

    AVG Anti-Virus Software :
    I would recommend this it’s really good!

    This is a small programme that cleans up your PC.
    Have fun x

    AVG Anti-Virus ois one of the best, free Anti Virus programs you can get. Download it free from:

    I use it on my computer, ann it works great! It even helps protect you on the internet. It automatically scans links on the webpage to make sure they are safe to click. Good luck. That sucks about your Norton, though.

    There are virus checkers and virus checkers.

    I used to use AVG with latest daily downloads. Then after accessing a particular internet site my PC got infected with a virus which AVG was unable to pickup or disinfecect.

    Nothing seemed to work to get rid of virus. I was then advised to try AVAST!

    It found and removed the virus quickly. Had no further problems since I have been using it. The interface is not as nice as AVG, but who cares, as long as it works.

    Downloadable at

    I would however definitely recommend that you uninstall all copies of previous virus checkers before starting to install a new virus checker.

    Try Microsoft Security Essentials – it’s is a free download for Windows XP SP2 and higher, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. You’ll get protection from spyware, viruses, worms, Trojans, and other malicious software. This link will help:
