Everyone here knows that Norton is bad! I have NOD32 and its the best AV I ever used, it doesnt hurt ur resources and is a VERY good in catching shit.

I heard good things about kaspersky, but some of the comparison charts that i seen in the past, plus the feedback from people NOD32 is the winner

Hope this helps

Cheers

Kaspersky is way better than Norton.

Norton is unnecessarily heavy on the PC so don't bother with it.

I personally use free AVG and have done for a year without a single problem although i'm gonna check out NOD32.

So use Kaspersky over Norton.

I used NOD32 for awhile, but I don't actually own it, so I switched to AVG free.

Kaspersky is OK, you got it for free so use it while your subscription is valid then if you don't want to pay for the renewal remove it and use AVG or Comodo that's free and adequate

I used to have Comodo, but when I reinstalled my OS on the new build I didn't want to mess with all the settings I had to change before so I decided to use AVG and Spybot. Hasn't let me down yet.

Yeah your right, Norton sucks. Most of the time it cant even pick up stuff! Personally i think NOD 32 is amazing.. Norton 360/ 2009 or whatever they will bring out will be rubbish. Stick to professional names.
