Why is Norton so popular? There was a test where these computer geeks created 3 obvious viruses and planted them on a computer purposely and scanned w/ norton, mcafee, and a 3rd party free antivirus. Mcafee caught all 3 the free 1 caught 1 and norton caught NONE.

I use NOD32, it's fantastic, it's kept well up to date... never had a serious moment in its time on my system, very good.

I would recommend it over McAfee and Norton, both of which in my eyes are poo.


Don't laugh at me.... Thank you
