Norton is NOT the best, not by a long shot, it's just probably the most well known. I remember when I first got my HP laptop it had Windows Vista on it and it came with a trial of Norton 360 and it seemed to work fine and everything. The problem for me came when I checked to see what it cost to renew the subscription......$150!! and the software was already on my pc, that was just for a subscription renewal! I said screw that, uninstalled it and installed Avast! and I've been using that ever since.
I did notice that my pc ran a lot faster after I uninstalled it too. It's a resource hog and doesn't update nearly enough for me. Avast! updates at least once every two days while Norton updated maybe once a week. In a week there could be hundreds of new viruses that Norton wouldn't even know about. Look elsewhere.
