well i just started testing norton 360 in hopes that i could cut down on the time spent mainting a home brewed suite. so far it's been decent for the most part but it occasionally nags me about setting up various features i really dont want to mess with. probably won't be keeping it but it works for now. personally i find that not letting everyone else play on my computer and being smart about my online activities is my strongest defense against virus infection.

Notron is a virus.

it's not as bad as previous versions about hogging resources but then again the biggest pain with norton has always been trying to remove it which may at the best of times has required a human sacrifice. so we'll see how that goes when i decide to drop it.

Realised that a long long time ago. The lesson was a very painful one at the time, as I recall.

i know but norton seemed to be getting good reviews for the rc so i thought i'd give it a shot. somedays it's fine and just sits there doing what it should, other days it decideds to pester the hell out of me. it really doesnt seem to like the opera browser but then again neither do i so i cant fault it for that. the only other thing that bothers me is a bathroom break seems to be long enough to determine it's idle and should do a system scan.

Absolutely nothing...

From time to time that I install an Antivirus for the hell of it I never have any sort of malware

Common Sense does wonders

err...I forgot that Windows Firewall also counts. Win 7 version of it is pretty advanced
