The best reason to not use N360 is that it is the worst program EVER WRITTEN FOR ANY PLATFORM EVER.

Uninstall it immediately, before it destroys your computer - which it will, because it is more deadly and dangerous than any virus.

People are asking what is working with WINDOWS 7... why are you even talking about XP? Focus... why not tell us about your dog while you're at it?

If you read the thread instead of just looking at my post, the original poster wanted a free AV, not a paid one. That's what.

Avira works great for me plus has the best detection rating of the top 40 programs

MSE works the best for me but I will use N360 until my subscription ends cause it's slightly better than MSE. I actually feel like changing to MSE now but I don't want to end up feeling like I wasted money.
