wow there are people who think norton is good lol.
I've read some AV reviews recently and surprisingly Norton was winning those reviews. I'm no Norton fanboy, I've hated Symantec/Norton for the pains caused me by their software in the past. But it's been rated fast/reliable as of late. "Who'd a thunk it?"
I went from Trend Micro to NOD32 to Bit Defender to Kaspersky's to AVG Free to Avast Free to Avast Internet Security(current). They were all great when I used them. But they all got ugly at some point, Bit Defender had issues, Kaspersky's had issues with their Network service/protection and Trend Micro just stopped being very effective. And AVG Resident Protection kept crashing when I tried to play HEAT Online so I dumped them after a whole week. Except Avast, it's yet to get annoying, give me any issues with games/software or cause BSOD's.
But not even the best AV can protect against Stupid Users that install all kinds of "permissionware"
