MY COMPUTER IS ALWAYS GETS INFECTED TO VIRUS....ETC. I AM USING ESET I DONT THINK IT IS AS EFFICIENT AS NORTON AND ALSO ESET MAKES COPYING AND PASTING EXE FILES SLOW..........VERY SLOW. WHEN I UNINSTALL IT EVERY THING BECOMES RIGHT, AND I CAN COPY EXE FILES FASTER... MUCH FASTER.

I THINK IT SCANS THE EXE FILES WHILE THEY BEING COPIED.

SO I AM NOT INTERESETED IN ESET ANYMORE. I TRIED IN NORTON INTERNET SECURITY 2010 IN MY OLD SYSTEM CORE 2 DUO E6300 1.86GHZ 2GB RAM. IT WAS VERY SLOW. FOR NOW I AM PLANING GETTING A NEW PC

PC GOING TO BE BOUGHT
SPECS

INTEL i7 860 2.8GHZ ............MAY OVERCLOCK IT TO 3.8GHZ(MAY BE)
ASUS MAXIMUS FORMULA III.
2GB RAM DDR3 1600 MHZ
GTS 250 1GB
ANTEC 900.

CAN I RUN NORTON INTERNET SECURITY 2010 WITHOUT COMPRIMISING POWER AND SPEED WITH THE ABOVE NEW PC SPECS.


IF I CANT THEN PLEASE GIVE ME SPECS WHICH CAN RUN IT.

THANKS IN ADVANCE

Best solution

simple, dont get norton. It's garbage, it makes your system slow and fails at detecting half the virusses you get.

use avast or AVG or something.

I use avast on a windows 7 rig, (and netbook), and have never had issues with speed or failure to find virusses.

loving it.

Using caps will not help earn you any respect on this forum, in fact it will do quite the contrary, considering you are the one asking for help.
It takes me twice as long to read something written in caps

If you are smart (in which case you are not), you would find that in ESET, there are options to disable scanning on file open, and file creation:



learn some manners, grow up some more, and come back when you can communicate like a civilized person.

Oh and BTW is better than Norton and pay attention to what you download to not get a virus.

yeah, I use Eset Smart Security, full Anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall and it catches everything from the net, and it makes my windows 7 run better then Norton on my XP machine, plus uses less memory then Norton. (Alspo runs nice and fast on my PC)

Hmm perhaps the OP should stop downloading and installing all this cr@p from the interwebs (esp. filesharing sites/programs like Limewire,etc). I haven't gotten a virus/spyware so far.

:lol:  A i7 with a high end board and only 2GB RAM? :lol:  fail. I highly recommend you invest in some common sense OP.

I have been running AVG, quite happy with it.
Norton is terrible, the worst, it does a good job, but is a pain in the rear-end resource hogging computer slowing bunch of nonsense. I had it because my Comcast account gives it to your for free, holy cow was installing that a mistake. Ran it for about 2 months, HATED IT. Installed AVG, and it just simply and effectively works.

I'm gping to disagree about the anti-norton comments......

I've used norton since 1997, and in fairness the older versions were a bit resource intensive and dumb, for example a automatic scan could cripple your PC through HDD access, although I will say the problem IMO was overexaggerated in terms of games performance - I never noticed a massive difference with or without norton installed....

The newer versions have adderessed the resources issues exceptionally well, look at any independant review / comparison not biassed by previous experience and you'll see Norton compares pretty favorably to some of the other options.

The important thing is that I have never, ever, not once, had a virus/trojan infect my system while norton was running, there was a keygen once (that norton kept deleting the moment I unzipped it) I disabled norotn and hey presto trojan on my PC.....

The key thing is sensible internet behaviour - I learned my lesson from a mistake, and I'll never repeat it.

I used to be anti-Nortons and used both Eset and AVG, but have switched back to Norton Internet Security 2010, lean on system resources and doesn't slow down system. Looking forward to 2011 version as its supposed to be tweaked to hell and back.

I don't like norton for the following reasons:

- It has managed to Kill, (yes and proven aswell so don't say it isn't possible) one of our laptops
- It puts bars and writes NORTON everywhere in your system. I don't want to notice that a virus scanner is embedded in my system, I want the scanner to do it's job without me noticing it, and writing its name everywhere
- constant popups
- costs money
- fails to detect many virusses which other scanners picked up just like that
- recourse hungry.
- its yellow


Avast is what i've been using over the past 3 years, and it is exactly the scanner I want, no bloatware, no ads, just plain and simple does the job very well in the background, no recourse hog, and does not show signs of itself in the windows user interface!

/end rant

If it doesn't embed itself into a system why does Norton make a removal tool that goes way beyond what add/remove programs does? They have no reason to implant themselves into a system that much to do the job that is asked of them.

IMHO, Microsoft's Security Essentials is pretty good, small footprint, and best of all - free! :p
