My Norton has expired and is going to cost 25 notes to renew, was just wondering if anyone had any other recommendations for an antivirus, or do I stick with Norton?

I a musing Panda.

On my last computer it did slow it down but on my new machine it is fine.

Has anyone heard of anything about Panda?

I have used AVG for many years now without any problems [:)] I think this combined with Zone alarm fire wall + the odd scan with Ad Aware is all thats needed for the average home user!

Plenty of threads futher down the Computers section about this.  The favourites seem to be AVG if you want free, and McAfee if you are paying.

One of my best mates is a big wig at Mcafee and he gets me AV for free and I still use avg instead! like already's been said it just does its job and doesn't try to re-config your pc! definatly dump Norton! think some of their products you have to download an uninstaller from their web site! right pain in the butt!

Whoever said Nod32

This man doth spake the truth, yeah verily[:)]
