Thanks for your opinion and fair enough with your reason, you did not quite explain why it behaves like a virus unless you referring to slowness of PC.
I started using Nortons in the last two years and one of my greatest concerns with antivirus software is slowing down the PC functions, so far no noticeable impact at all and my PC has had no infections in the last two years..... I think that talks for it self.
Certainly no resource Hog, Yes in the past it was....
On one last comment as every one should know, Software can go from Good to Bad or vice versa, this has happened in the last 3 years across the range of Antivirus software, so it pays to keep updated with the performance of software.
People should do their home work correctly and don't rely on rumors.
