Default Anti-virus

I'm new and don't know too much about computers but I recently bought a HP notebook and wireless router to enable my wife and I to use the desktop and notebook at the same time. It has worked out Ok until I decided to remove Norton Anti-virus that came installed on the notebook. I did this because the computer was very slow. (WE have AVG on the desktop) Tried this on the laptop but AVG must prevent networking. Any suggestions for an anti-virus that will be compatable with networked desktop and not slow down the notebook?

Just go with PC-CILLIN. Had many other anti virus programs and when testing them I found out PC-CILLIN did the best job. Dont use AVG I know its free but it takes way to long to scan and it uses more Ram than the others. Just Pay the $ 40 bucks for PC-CILLIN. Also dont use MCafee it made my and some of my friends pc's crash

You removed Norton Anti-virus? That wasn't smart. I have Norton Anti-virus Corporate Edition... it is the best anti-virus software out there by far. Norton is not bloated software. Are you sure it was it that was doing the slow-downs?

You could go with Avast I think. It was the one I used before and was very handy software...

Northon is not great sorry to say Giancarlo. When I would scan for virus it would not remove them all. Then after running PC-cillin remove about 20 trojans. Be sides Northon Charges after a Year of services. If your short in Ram remove AVG uses to much.
