Hey Marvz. :)

Please have a look at this post:

For free antivirus programs, you can't go wrong with one of these:

I have used all three of those free AVs that are listed and I believe they all work quite well. I am actually using Agnitum Outpost Security at the present time and really like it.

<snip>My norton free edition is about to expire</snip>

I'm not grasping the concept of what you're saying. Free edition expiring? If it's expiring it is a trial edition, or a paid for with a set time frame, not free. If it was truly free it would not expire.

Thank you for clarifying. Best of luck to you with your new AV, whichever one you decide to choose.
