In my systems it is just the opposite. But who cares.

Setups can be different for every OS - I might test it out on a Fresh Windows 7 Install

Norton is just fine these days. They used to be a resource hog and hard to uninstall. It hasn't been that way for the 2010 and 2011 product.

As to the exact resource usage, it's going to vary from user to user....but I don't think you will notice any significant change from MSE.

Without a doubt, Norton has far more bells and whisltes and features than MSE. If you put yourself into risky situations, I would use Norton over both MSE or Avast. I personally don't get into risky situations, so I don't feel like spending the money.

And as others said, I would not run MSE and Avast at the same time.

Currently Norton Antivirus 2011 1 user is $19.99 at NewEgg, and Norton Internet Security 2011 3 user is $49.95. I cannot find a single user license for NIS at NewEgg.

At Amazon, NIS 2011 1 user is $23. And 3 users is $35.

Wierd thing is Norton will usually cost more to renew at end of 1st year than it costs to simply buy the software again. I have no idea why that is the case.

Thanks for the reply guys.I think the best course of action is to install Norton and see how my system behaves for couple of days.I have 2.4 GHz Intel i3 with 3 GB of RAM,i think it may be sufficient for NIS 2011.

As for MSE and Avast running together,so far they have not conflicted with each other and my system has never crashed.Well that might be just me.

Will get back to you guys soon.

Just a quick update.Installation of NIS 2011 hardly took 1 min.The interface looks slick and clean with some nice features and its not as resource hogging anti virus as some people say,my CPU usage hardly goes above 20 % even while performing full scan and opening multiple tabs in chrome and playing music.

Just a quick question where can i find the firewall settings in NIS 2011??i couldn't find or i haven't looked enough

Look under Network Settings near the bottom is Smart Firewall with additional choices in that section.
Also check out Identity Safe Tool Bar. It stores your login and passwords and auto populates the web site.

You have stand alone Norton AV, not the entire suite.
