Subscription UP Recommendation needed

We all know that owning a PC and surfing the net one can become vulnerable
due to Hackers,Viruses,Trojans etc.etc. The majority of us try to protect
our PC by installing Anti-Virus software to avoid such attacks.
I’m currently using Norton Anti-Virus/Internet protection but within the next
couple of days my Annual subscription is due for renewal.
I need someone to recommend a good Anti-Virus software and Internet security package. I just want to try a few others before i commit to
Symantec for another 12 Months.
Thanks for reading and for any replies that may follow.

The TRUTH is a LIE waiting to be told.

Kaspersky Personal and NOD32 are way better than Norton both in performance (much faster, especially “on-the-fly” scans) and recognizing viruses so I highly recommend you to ditch Norton in favour for one of the programs mentioned above.
As for firewall Kerio 2.1.5 is a good choice (if you have Win XP SP2 you can use the builtin) and does what you tell it to do. It’s also free for personal use.

Thanks DiiZzy,
I’m currently leaning towards Kaspersky. No more Norton for
me apart for GHOST.

Why don’t you try one of the free AV first.

AVAST

AVG

I like AVAST

I like NOD32, I will never touch norton av again. I hardly notice a difference when it is scanning. It also does not slow down sending/recieving or large e-mails, like norton did. It also has a nice clean interface.

Well, thats my 2 cents.

Good Luck!
