I'm getting a desktop soon to replace my gaming laptop, my antivirus that came with my PC expired so I need a temporary antivirus, I'm thinking Avira for free so I don't have to pay a yearly or monthly subscription, any thoughts?

I prefer the free version of Bitdefender or Kaspersky, with the free version of Malwarebytes for an occasional scan.

so I don't have to pay a yearly or monthly subscription,

I don't recommend paying for antivirus for most users anyway.

Just use Windows defender and forget about antivirus. The built in one works fine and it’s free.

Windows 10's built in Windows Defender is good.

If you're using Windows 10, you can just enable Windows Defender as it has improved compared to previous versions. Install Malwarebytes as well. Often you have about a week of premium free trial but you don't have to upgrade after that because the free version works fine. Also, exercise care in browsing and downloading files - that still is the best prevention for viruses.
