I am new to this sorry if this is in the wrong category :??: 

Anyways, I have Norton antivirus and I am going to build a New PC for gaming. I plan on using it on my new PC, Does Norton Antivirus decrease/effect my FPS? I wont use it if it does. And if it does decrease it is there a good antivirus software that wont?

Thank You

Norton is a CPU hog and will make your PC slow (in my experience).

You can use freebies which are as good as ones you pay for.

There is Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast.etc.

Modern CPUs are so powerful it's not really a concern.

Can't be bothered to contact them, using MSE anyway.

Well try it, i have a messed experience with norton but your experience might be better.

EDIT: Remember to activate the product key, Norton will remind you with there pop ups.
