Question AntiVirus question

I was supposed to renew my Nortons AntiVirus and Firewall subscription today but kinda didn't, it'll still work ok until I renew it in a day or so?

Re: AntiVirus question

Dunno if you guys + girls have ever tried this AVG from www.grisoft.com . I've used it for a few years, seems to do the trick and its FREE :)
AVG free edition is what your after.

Re: AntiVirus question

I got Anti Viral Toolkit Pro by Kaspersky Labs over 5 years ago with a cracked key and still use the old version with the latest virus database updates.

Re: AntiVirus question

I use AVG anti-virus and sygate personal firewall. Both are free and both do an excellent job. So instead of renewing your subscription (which I believe costs money) use a free one!
