    Why bother? There are much better rated free programs out there. OP should just go with Avira or Avast and be done with it.

    I've read the same sorts of articles and reviews of the newest versions of Norton AV: it has been vastly improved over earlier versions, but I still dislike the app. However, the OP was talking about it being free; if I were short of funds I might just consider Norton at that price. LOL

    AVG has been suggested in this thread, but recently I've read several horror stories about it, though the program always worked well for me.

    FWIW, if you have the means, I'd suggest either NOD32 or Kaspersky. NOD, I think is only about $25 or so and I don't think I've ever read a poor review of this program.
