AntiVirus suggestions and questions

Ive been an Avid user of Norton products for the last 10+yrs howevere im very disappointed in the most recent issues i have had with them. My favorite part of NAV was identity safe (maybe not so safe) storing and typing my logins and passwords so i dont have to, ive always felt pretty secure with it but not so sure anymore.
So im looking to find another A?V program that also has this type of password manager included with it as well if there even is any others that have it.
Sorry i havent posted in quite awhile, W7U has prooved to to be a decent OS and i have not had any major issues to have to come here for anymore.

Every A-V Program has its own user interface. If you are a normal home user then you would find that the free Avast A-V would more than serve your needs.

I am not quite clear what Identity Safe Storing is and does. I too had used NAV for years but gave it up a few years back due its slowing down the computer.

From a BSOD perspective you are far better off without Norton.
In fact we recommend people use Microsoft Security Essentials & also Malwarebytes.

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows.


Malwarebytes : Download free malware, virus and spyware tools to get your computer back in shape!

I am using Norton anti-virus and so far it hasn't given me any problems.Maybe my opinion is biased as i have a one year subscription with Norton.
If you are looking for password managers built within anti-virus,you can have a look at Kaspersky Pure Kaspersky PURE | Kaspersky Lab United States
