I bought my laptop a while ago and got MCafee for free with it, but my subscription is coming to end soon.
Should I renew and pay the money, or download one of the many free antivirus thats on the web?
TY all you computer geeks out there!

YOu don't need anything. Let the viruses run wild. Pop-ups are the **** !

For home PC, I have a definite prejudice toward McAfee over Norton. I don't know much about the freebies, but with McAfee and Norton you can set them to get auto updates and I believe they have new virus updates much quicker than the more obscure products.

I've used McAfee for years and years. I've had no problems and I love the spam blocking and spam detecting portion of it. Thus far, I've never had a virus of any sorts on my three computers!
That's just my review....some don't like it. But, hey, to each his own.

I bought norton one time and it would never load right so i took it back plus it takes up an incrediable amout of system resources, i had mccafee with my comcast account and never had one problem. I have also used zonealarm for 20 bucks and had good luck.

I've used Avast (free) for the last few years and never had a problem. McAfee and Norton seem to bog computers down.
