No protection software is perfect.

My friend has Norton he think his system is immune to viruses.

He try Avast it detects 3 malwares that norton didnt detect it.

My point here is No one is perfect.

If you want really your system runs safe try sandboxie.

I dunno if norton has sandbox.

Trust me sandbox now is getting popularity.

Mostly new AV now using sandbox as additional for their protection.

Actually using free Anti-virus Software is my good choice.

Try this one

Avast = Free
Malwarebytes = Free
Sandboxie = Paid
