Where can I find free spyware and virus scans/protection?

My Norton antivirus just can out and I can't afford to renew it just yet. Is there anything free out there that I can use in the meantime that won't cause a virus?

  • Avira, Windows Defender,  and Spamfighter are all free to download and use and, according to Consumer Reports, when combined and used at the same time are VERY effective.

  • AVG is free. Not sure of the website but do a search for AVG Virus Protection.

  • Go to and use Nod32. It's free for 30 days. It's a great product. My husband and I have used it for years and have never had a problem.
