I currently have Norton Antivirus, but was considering uninstalling it so that less resources are consumed and to free up HD space.
It has not really helped me in any way, the last time i got a virus was when i had activeX enabled, which i don't anymore since i use firefox. I also don't stupidly click on .exe files and the sort, so i couldn't get a virus like that.
So do you guys think it is necessary to have an antivirus program? should i keep Norton or can i ditch it?
well, i have a router, so i guess i have a firewall... so do i really need to worry about an antivirus program protecting me from these so called "back door port intrusions" since i have a router (firewall)?
So since i have a router, can i get rid of my antivirus program?
In my opinion, Trend Micro's Pc-Cillin is by far the best one. Uses very little system resources and is better at detecting viruses and removing them. I have had bad luck with Zone Alarms software, They make an ok firewall, they dont know much about Anti-Virus yet.
