My first AV came pre-installed with my first laptop. It was Trend Micro, that time known as something Trend Micro "Penicillin" or something. It was 1 year free.
At that time I was completely novice. After TM expired I tried many but never paid for any AVs i.e free AVs
Over the time I learned a lot & never felt the need to get paid AVs.

I started with the trail version of Norton that was included on my new PC and later paid for the up-grade. That was 3 years ago. Then I went to Panda Free for 5 or 6 months and I I've been using Avira Free ever since, an excellent alternative.
