Default Re: mcafee or norton?

i dont kno about that. i just use norton everything internet secutiry becuase it's very thorugh. i just recently a tech magazine called pc mag, incidently, and it had an article about macafee, saying how hte program sometimes didn't catch all viruses and was slow on the update for news of new virueses. of course, i dont think it mentioned anything about the firewall, say i cant say anything.

I mean that it slows your computer down while Mc Afee does the same but not at the degree Norton does

I use McAfee as well. Norton is so FRICKIN ANNOYING!! It pops up ALL THE TIME saying my PC is going to die, my life is in danger, I am an idiot, I need protection now, etc etc.. Norton's Firewall sucks also, really BAD... McAfee pwns Norton!
