  5. Hi :)

    You will get a LOT of different opinions to that question lol :)

    I fix viruses EVERY day in my Computer shops....

    IMHO...

    Norton Internet Security 2012 = BEST PAID

    Microsoft Security Essentials = BEST FREE

    BUT...Norton is around twice as good as MSE...

    All the best Brett :)

    Hi :)

    You obviously dont run Nis.... It uses less than 1% of system resources.... and I have over a dozen machines here which I just checked....highest was 0.9% ...lowest was 0.3%...

    That resource problem with NIS was resolved with NIS 09 ...
