Hi all - I have a quick question. My 90 day trial period has now run out with Norton Security and I am looking at getting the anti virus etc set up on my PC elsewhere (free if possible). What I want to know is now the trial period has expired, does that mean that the av is uninstalled? I have had a look on the website but can't see anything which gives me an option to uninstall. Thanks for your help!

It will still be there after 90 days but will not update so you will not be protected from any new virus that may turn up.

I'd remove it, run CCleaner and install some of the free options that are available - one such being Avast AntiVirus - as well as SpyBot S&D.

Say "yes" for now; good to have it on.
