Unhappy Know Any FREE Anti Virus Software

Recently i just bought a Toshiba Satellite A665, its literatly been a week and its been Freezing on me, and it has the newest version of Norton. Im also running windows 7... The freezing happens usually 15 minutes in, sooner or longer, depending what i do... I honestly hope i can fix this problem, or im probally gonna go nerd rage, id like to find some free anti virus software, and see if any of them can clear up my problem... and i know its not an internal hardware... because i've already ran that down on my list of problems.... SOOOOO

I use Avast! Home Edition.

My opinion is this; If you feel the need to pay for AV software, and it's not for business use, then ditch the computer and hire a flock of pigeons instead.
