Just keep Avast & renew it.

You're welcome Carol.

Avast is good for free, even if it needs renewing once a year.

You will have to renew it once a year, a real pain. In addition they are pretty quick in telling you, very often, that you should go to pay.
I and most of us here, prefer, Microsoft Security Essenatials. It has none of that nonsense. In addition, when used in conjunction with the free Malwarebytes, its hard to beat.
