I've heard here and other places that Norton Anti-Virus is not as good as some of the other AV programs out there. Supposedly Norton is bluffed and exploited, and is a resource hog. My Norton update subscription runs out in about 25 days now, so this is the logical time for me to consider a switch.
I've been very happy with Norton so far; it's always stopped viruses for me and I've never found anything in my system scans. I have noticed that it seems to slow down my computer somewhat.
So anyway, is there any free, perhaps open-source AV software that is better than Norton? I can't think of any better place to ask than here! So if you have experience with Norton AND some other AV software, I'd love to hear your recommendations!
