To be honest, i don't believe that any of the Norton products are more effective than the free ones that you can just download ... personally, i wouldn't need to use Norton Anti Virus, 2005 or 2006, i would use AVG and Anti Vir, both of which does a great job

I have 2005. Hackers, and such aim at the latest and greatest version. I tend to stay with the most stable version, until you don't get anymore updates. I suggest 2005, just because it's more stable then 2006, or at least wait a month or two before buying to allow bug fixes.

Since you already have NAV 2006, stick with it to see how it does. I'm sure it will do a great job protecting your PC. Otherwise, why would Norton release a new AV already? Unless they're becoming like Microsoft, haha, yes I made a funny.

As far as NAV 2005, I'm using it too and it's been as great as Christmas. Works wonders. I get my automatic updates, no freeze ups, no conflicts with any other programs, it's just peachy.

Thank you all for your contributions.But for Mr.F, I want to tell you that I have Anti Virus 2006. It is already installed in my PC. But I didn't like it. I'm planning to replace it by another program.
