Is there any internet security software like Norton free for download?

I have Norton internet security but it will expire soon. I was wondering if there were any programs out there for free. There probably isn’t but I just thought I’d ask. Thanks in advance.

    Yea there is a bunch of free programs that can be a quite effective defense.
    Free antiviruses
    Important:You may only have one antivirus and one firewall

    Avira Antivir Free or Avast! Home Edition
    Avira has a easier to use interface and a slightly higher detection rate
    Avast! has boot time scanning(cool) and email scanning. Also has antispyware protection
    I would avoid AVG free
    Reason: It has a lower detection rate, less features and has no antirootkit

    Free AntiSpywares
    You can have more than one antispyware
    Malwarebytes AntiMalware

    Some extra stuff you should do
    Get a free firewall
    You may only have one firewall
    Comodo Firewall Pro
    Zonealarm Free Firewall

    Switch to Firefox from IE
    Use the MyWot program

    Do not use AVG, their free version of software is ineffective. Go to and download the free version of ant-virus however, remember, you are “not” going to get a very effective anti-virus software for free from any website, A business is in business to make money not lose it. There are only two anti-virus software compatible with the windows software, with signed drivers by Microsoft, one is norton the other is mcafee. Non signed software will breach your internet security, without a doubt, Don’t be surprised if you start missing system files after using other anti-virus programs.
