ABN (anything but norton)



Seriously, current wisdom is Microsoft security essentials. Less BSOD's, hooked better with win 7, and free.

I use something else.

I personally use Avast and like it. For antispyware, SuperAntispyware and MalwareBytes will be the best IMHO. A Guy

Instead of relying on the opnions of others why not do a little research of your own and make a decision based on facts?

Norton does everything but suck, these days.

If you still want to change, tw33k gave excellent advice.

I've been using Norton Security 2010 (now 2011) and was a hard core anti-Norton fan for years before the 2010 release. Now I will not use anything else. they really go their act together on this one.
