Do you guys recommend antivirus software that you purchase along with one of the free ones or are any of the free ones sufficient on their own? My McAfee runs out in a couple of months so wondering if I should renew but add a free one or choose something other than McAfee

If your subscription runs out then go for something Free McAfee is not what it once was as an AV, there are many Decent Freebies : http://www.microsoft.com/secur.....y/mse.aspx
