Yes, I personally use Avast Antivirus. You need only register it and they'll send you a registration key that's good for a year. You can re-register at the end of that year and get another key for free. :)

You can download Avast from here: https://www.avast.com/en-us/index

Make sure you uninstall Webroot before you install Avast. :thumbsup:

I'd uninstall McAfee as well, as you don't want it and Avast conflicting with each other. Windows Defender is disabled, so there won't be a conflict between it and Avast. :thumbsup:

OK....I installed the anti-virus and it ran a scan and found nothing.  Am I good to go?
