Hi,

I need to upgrade my PC security suite as its now getting a bit old. I was running McAfee v7, which I uninstall yesterday to install F-Secure Trial version. F-Secure I really like its doing a good job but its got mixed reviews. So I had a look at Norton and McAfee, which also had mixed reviews. So I've come here for help.

Which Security Suite Should I buy?

I have deployed Norton on about 20 computers and have not had any real issues. The only one that made me mad was that Norton got a little buggy once XP SP 2 was installed. I upgraded Norton to the 2005 version, and haven't had a problem since.

My vote is for Norton.

The people at Microsoft use NOD32. It gets top reviews and claims that since 1998 it was was the only tested product that has never missed a single 'In the Wild' virus. It's worth consideration.

I'd opt for NOD32 over Norton any day - and regardless that MS uses it....

cool NOD32 does Network scans, thanks people for telling me about NOD32. I have a client who is very interested, on how best to protect the companyís computers. Iíll tell him about NOD32 thanks people.

By the way I brought McAfee Internet Security Suite 2005 for my computers as Norton Internet Security 2005 and F-Secure Internet Security 2005 where both out of stock from the only place in the UK that sell OEM software eBuyer, eBay had it but way over priced. But I heard good things about McAfee from my friend in Belfast so I brought it, should come today.

Thanks Posters
