Do I HAVE TO renew my anti-virus subscription?

  [DELETED] 14:10 19 Jun 2006

It expires in two days and McAfee keep emailing me to renew the subscription. What happens if I don't? Does my anti-virus software simply 'stop working'?
Are there any FREE anti-virus software downloads on the internet?

Free options:

click here
This is my favourite. It automatically updates itself and is free. You need to register with your email address and they send you a registration code.

click here for AVG used by others here.

Both 100% and perfect for the home user.

PS If you don't renew, you can't get the new definitions.

Download a new one, uninstall the current one and reboot and install the new one.

Thanks guys! Diodorus - where on that page is the download for the whole anti-virus software? I can't seem to find the link.

It will not stop working. You just will not be able to get updates so it will be just like a chocolate bobby. As above download a Free one like Avast. I use it on two XP computers click here
