Can anybody recommend a good place to get a free antivirus for my computer? Mine's expired & I'm not looking to fork out any $$ to renew.

Who is your internet provider? I use AT & T and they give you McAfee for free. On, up to, I think 7 computers. When I got a new laptop, I just downloaded it and was good to go on it and the old PC.

Charter unfortunately. I'm not sure if they're supposed to provide the antivirus service or not.

AVG is probably the best free anti virus software out there. I have been using it on all my windows machines for over 10 years.

Also, if you're hell bent on McAfee or Norton, they often have their software available for free after rebate. I'll post something back here if I see an offer like that again.
