    I just decided to not renew my Norton subscription. Does anyone use a free online anti-virus that I should use?

    I used to use Avira Anti Vir I think. You are able to download it free if you google it. I use Linux now so I don't need an antivirus. I never had any trouble with Avira though.

    I've used AVG Free for years and haven't had any problems.

    I use AVG as well....you can also use SpyBot to clean your computer, and that is free too.

    Thanks guys! I decided to try avast! anti-virus after reading reviews online. It's worth a try, I guess. I couldn't believe Norton! I looked at my bank statement and they AUTOMATICALLY renewed my subscription without my permission! $59.99 that I wasn't planning on spending. I decided (after I got off of the phone with them) that being assertive like my mother isn't a bad thing after all! :lol:
