I'm guessing I do.
Last year I paid £60 for Norton, and it's neraly time to renew....is there anything cheaper, and how do I get it? confused

Yes
Microsoft security essentials from Microsoft website - it's free.

AVG is free for personal use. Google it and you can download it. Also Google how to uninstall Norton properly. It used to leave stuff in place which was a pain.

Oh and yes you must have virus protection. I have it on my phone even.

Avast or AVG are free and often less likely to bog your PC down than norton. Up to date Windows installations also have good security options, but you need to make sure you use them properly and allow them to update.

wow - I had no idea you could get them for free! smile

How do you get anti virus on your phone? Do I just google and download like on the pc?

You can download AVG for android via Google Playstore so good for phones and tablets.
