I need an antivirus software that is free to download and will allow me to protect my computer from viruses that doesn't download a virus itself.

Make sure you don't have a AV program already on your computer if you do download the free one you want to use then uninstall the old one....I would do a disk cleanup and a defrag before trying to install the new AV. That should give it a better chance of working...
