you won't go wrong with these. They are regular forum recommendations and are all free:

A-Squared
SuperAntiSpyware
Spybot Search & Destroy
Malware Bytes Anti Malware

You must not run TWO antivirus programs. If when Norton needs to be paid for another 12 months, you can use a removal tool to get rid of Norton and install AVG (free).
