    Norton Antivirus

    I know this has been asked before. My Norton renewal is up this month, do I shuck out the bucks for renewal or just go with AVG?

    Don't waste your money. Microsoft Security Essientials is free. That plus Spybot is really all you need...

    Re: Norton Antivirus

    At the very least, don't even think about going with McAfee. I got that **** software for free on my new computer when I bought it, but I still think it's overpriced.

    True story -- about a month ago when I ran a virus scan, it identified one of its own files and quarantined it. This caused a fatal error where it told me I needed to reinstall it. Anti-virus software that lobotomizes itself, now that's a quality product!

    Re: Norton Antivirus

    I've been running AVG on a couple machines for the last 2 or 3 years and it seems to be doing the job. I also have spybot. Before that I had Norton and it just seemed to be a huge resource hog that caused me nothing but problems. I have never looked back.

    Re: Norton Antivirus

    just go with the free stuff from Microsoft - it works great and doesn't bog your computer down with crap.
