Free Laptop Anti-Virus Downloads

My Norton/Zone Alarm Security Programs have expired.  Can anyone recommend any free, good downloads for laptops or would it be safer to just purchase a reliable program?  Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

its always going to be safer to purchase a program but you can use free ones like AVG. Go to Download.com and look on the left to find security and that will show some top rated free services.

Avast is a fantastic free AV software. Any of the paid AV softwares seemed to be overstuffed with bloatware and do no more than the free softwares available to you. 

 

You can download Avast Home Edition (free) from their website at www.avast.com
