Free anti-virus alternatives.
So my suscription to Norton is ending in a couple days, and it has come to my attention that it will cost me around 60 dollars to renew for an additional (ya, only one) year. That seems like a lot of money to pay, especially when I used AVG free edition for previous computers and never had a serious problem. Norton was given to me for free.
The only difference now is that I payed for this laptop and I have lots of school and personal info on it and I don't want it to get corrupted. So my question is, do you need an anti-virus program like Norton or McAfee nowadays, or are there good alternatives for free?
