Paid anti-virus VS free -- Any difference in virus scans?

By Squiggly1

  1. Is there any difference in paid anti-virus software VS free versions (Avast, Avira, etc)? Are the virus definitions on a company's free version the same as on their paid version?

    I would think the virus definitions would be the same. Usually you don't get any support with free versions of a program.
