I'm sick of paying McAfee $34.99 a year.
Well, if you're running Windows 7, Microsoft Security Essentials, AVG Free edition, or ZoneAlarm's free Antivirus-Firewall combination are good.
Some of the others store their virus definitions on a "cloud" server; so if, for some reason, your machine can't access the cloud server, then you're screwed--and your computer. too.
If you're running Windows 10, then Microsoft's Windows Defender, AVG Free edition, or ZoneAlarm's free Antivirus-Firewall combination are good.
If you're running Windows XP Pro, or XP Mode from Windows 7 Virtual Machine, then AVG's free antivirus-firewall combination for Windows XP is good.
