I am using Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 program, which will expire in January, 2014. I can download Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 Program free. Does Kaspersky Anti-virus 2013 have any changes over 2012? Should I download 2013?

Normally one would want to keep up with the latest updates and program releases for their chosen anti-virus system.

There's very small visible difference between the two editions. However, the new Automatic Exploit Prevention and Safe Money components were added to 2013 version. Read more on this.

If it is "free" as you stated, go for the 2013 edition and benefit from the added feature.

Everyone can download and instal the 2013 trial. And if you have a 2012 key (already installed/activated and still within the year or not previously installed/activated), it will work on the 2013.
So no real reason NOT TO get the latest version.
