norton antivirus (not IS) is more light weight than mse. i use norton antivirus and mse (mse on more pcs at home than norton because its free) but i can feel that pc with norton is generally faster (same specs) altought the difference is very hard to notice (on decent hardware) in everyday use so not much point in arguing about that.. norton is not what it was 4-5 years before its light weight and fast.
yes its not free and its crazy that to renew norton is expensive but you can buy cheap (or get free with rebates etc) in other places.
you are talking about widespread of antivirus as a risk.. and recommend MSE.
MSE is free and often recommended so it will become widespread too what then?
move to some not well know AV that only few users use?
