Kapersky Internet Security

can get a little annoying with the "allow, deny" window showing up really often, but at least it doesn't block it completely without warning

easkum;4053733At the moment I'm using the latest Norton Antivirussoftware. It doesn't slow down my computer and it makes my pc a fortress. I recommend it! (not for beginners, the menus are pretty sofisticated sometimes :p)

Wow. You make ole Norton sound good.

The last few versions would stop working, if Internet Explorer got infected... Plus they were the slowest thing going. If you didn't have a Gig of RAM on XP, your computer was going to move slower than a snail. Worse, the detection came across as poor, since many free anti-viruses picked up ones that Norton missed, after it was removed.

I had one funny incident. Norton didn't detect a Virus, until AVG did!? Or was it Avast? I switch between them often,...

Anyway. I want to know the specs for your computer, and a few benchmarks, with, and without Norton. I also need to research the Internet Explorer problem.

avast!

Sovereign002;4053682Norton sucks, I think we can all agree on that. =p

I don't. I used it for most, if not all of 2006 and had no problems with it.

You and Easkum must be the only two who actually like Norton. It was way too slow for my liking, took ages to start up decently.

well it was proven multiple times, that the old norton programs indeed inflicted terrible slowmoving machines of your new pc. But the norton's are much better, but who wants to switch now?

None. I'm using my Mac right now.

On my PC, i'm using AVG right now, though i really do prefer Avast. I just haven't felt like reinstalling it yet.
