No. Bad. Horrible.- Norton 2009 or Norton 2009 Gamer Edition (reluctantly, it will have to be admitted it improved very significantly and features a disturbingly low memory footprint now. Home users used to the old players can find it easy to use. Gamer edition more optimal for gamers. A surprise to see symantec come back to its senses).
But that's age old!- NOD32 2.7
Still superior protection to 'recent' ones.But that's age old!
Neither can I, but youre talking about the passive (editions after 2003 except corporate ones), which noone is unaware of. Its normal that over the years, to the more techy audiences, norton became synonymous to 'elephantware'. There are people who will use norton whatever others say, and the improvement over the trend of the last 5 years is one to note. Antiviruses arent religions (to preach or diss).As a tech, I can't tell you the sheer volume of issues I've completely resolved with the words "uninstall norton"
I strongly disagree! Haven't had ANY major virus attacks since I installed it 10 months ago. The memory footprint is also minimal, varying from 20-30MB at most times (give or take 5 occasionally).nod32 3.0 sucks.
Hmm...but doesn't that mean the virus signature database will be out-dated? Or do they still provide updates for it?Still superior protection to 'recent' ones.
3 and 4: souped up GUI. v3 and v4 ressource consumption is significantly higher, without increasing the protection significantly. The services also can easily bog down over 70%cpu (more noticeable on single cores, which rules out use on older systems, locking down workstations (till you stop them, then workstations return to 'normal').
Hmm Gamer Edition sounds interesting. But still i can't think of norton in any situation.- NOD32 2.7

I've never once forked out cash for Kaspersky, theres always a legit free key give away, you just need to know where to lookKaspersky and NOD32 for those who are willing to fork out cash. Internet security is much more desirable than the Antivirus-only package.
Mr.D.D,are you kidding?,,you mentioned "My girlfriend" in ever post you posted,at least what i saw,damn.maybe you like your girlfriend very much,lucky you.This thread is of interest to me because I'm thinking of getting a new install for my girlfriend's PC. Currently I'm planning to install Symantec Corporate Antivirus, but is there anything else out there with unlimited updates (one time fee?) and is light ?
