My Trend Micro just expired and I don't want to buy a new.

What is the best virus protection software I can get for free?

Go pirate a good virus protection package. I use Avira, and it works pretty well. You've also got things like Avast! and AVG which do a fair job, though.

Just use Linux. If there comes a time when viruse are targeted at Linux then the best ones will be free.

You don't need to find protection software, it will find you.

If you just surf around the internet for awhile without any protection, a nice pop-up will tell you that you may be infected and give you a free download of protection software.

Avira
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

I agree with this. Malwarebytes is brilliant, however I like Symantec EndPoint 2010 over Avira.

I work for a comptuer company and we get so much business because people do exactly that and get infected with a brilliant little virus that pretends to be a virus scanner and takes over your entire computer.
