Free version is free

And very good. A tech friend of mine turned me on to it when he helped me clean out a computer that had become majorly infected with multiple viruses. I've been using Avast ever since.

Also just like to say, Norton is more of a virus than an anti-virus in my opinion. It's not really any good. I don't recommend anyone using Norton (and I remove it from friends/family members computers when they speak of anti-virus)

Avast Free

If you haven't yet installed the trial Norton then you can simply download and install the free Avast. Be careful when looking for the download link though as there will be other Download buttons that are not for the Avast software.
