Ah ok. I thought so. We just switched to Eset Endpoint at work. It's fantastic.

I'm a big fan of Avast. At work we use Vipre. I'm currently rolling it out to replace Symantec.

I used Vipre for a year and found it very good, I intend buying it again for my new build in 2013.

I recently purchased a new laptop and the first thing I did after powering it up was to get rid of Norton, it slows down the computer and it prevents anything from installing without explanation, it would be less hassle to get a virus.

Wink Re: Here we go again. Norton related question

Windows Defender was initially an antispyware program, and was included with Vista and Seven.

In Windows 8 it is upgraded to an AV program. It resembles Microsoft Security Essentials, and uses the same virus definitions.
