Norton install their own viruses, then say they have found new ones, that they have installed in the first place,so you believe that they have found others !!!!, I use Kaspersky, brilliant , very reliable, my statement , is from my friend who works for norton, and has told me about , how they load a virus then say it has removed it, that they previously loaded themselves!!!!!!
That's a load of rubbish about Norton.

Norton is not a product I'd recommend at all, they've been in the press recently for missing attacks and leaving PCs vulnerable.

Avast Free is my antivirus of choice, however they do sometimes pester you to buy their more premium products.

Kaspersky, Avira are also fine.

Have you checked with your ISP to see if you have access to security packages with them?

I agree, go with Kaspersky or Bitdefender - both very good solutions.

Norton does have the advantage of its large community with files not seen by the community blocked.
I think that is a good idea for novice computer users.

I prefer a mixed approach but i am a security hobbyist and so like playing with different mitigations.

All anti virus products miss threats as they are always playing catch up.

Eset or kaspersky, avoid Norton and mcafee
#12
Sophos do an excellent home av for free. Generally they are an enterprise business but now offering a free download for home users.

i second this if you want to pay for extra security although the one built in windows 10 is good enough for most users

Really?? The latest independent security tests showed it detected less than 75% of real world threats - against an industry average of 98%. Of course it picks up 100% of the "Standard viri in the lab tests oO

+1 for Avast, Norton sucks, and not just resources.

I'll be honest, I will second you on that.
Avast Free is still a good antivirus, but the amount of pestering is now getting beyond a joke.

Panda Cloud has great reviews for detection and you can turn off the pestering....

Three day old review here:

http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/test-centre/security/windows-antivirus-best-pc-antivirus-free-paid-antivirus-2016-2017-uk-3263332

I used to use Kaspersky for 3 years and tbh got fed up of the false positives. Additionally, it was atrocious for slowing the pc down.

I have used Norton for the past 3 or 4 years, and will buy again.

I always buy from Amazon.

I have just bought this :

Norton Security Deluxe 3.0 - 1 User, 5 Devices and Utilities 12 Month License Card (PC/Mac)

£22.99

Tbh, they are all the same. To my knowledge, Norton, Macafee and Kaspersky all have their own removal tool which you download and run to do a complete uninstall.

They are purposely designed that way, to stop viruses being able to easily disable /remove them.

If you had Norton on a Vista laptop, that is going back some years, and I agree... Norton (360) was a pain at that point. Really bad performance. Big impact on pc ram use.

It was because of that I went to Kaspersky.

However, I read reviews on Norton and few years later when unhappy with Kaspersky, and they stripped it back again and made massive performance improvements.

I have been happy with Norton ever since.

Norton install their own viruses, then say they have found new ones, that they have installed in the first place,so you believe that they have found others !!!!, I use Kaspersky, brilliant , very reliable, my statement , is from my friend who works for norton, and has told me about , how they load a virus then say it has removed it, that they previously loaded themselves!!!!!!
