I still have over 200 days left on my current subscription though. Maybe I'll go back to 2012, I've never had any issues with Norton at all.
I had Norton Anti-Virus since 2002 and loved it, switched to 360 about a year ago. I was getting tired of paying and couldn't try out different 'brands' since you are tied down with the subscription. So I tried a few and picked Microsoft Security Essentials using Win 7 firewall with Tiny Wall.. Surprised that the MSE and Tiny Wall did better than the 360
MSE passed all the EICAR virus test (Norton didn't) and passed the GRC LEAK TEST (Norton didn't).
My son went on all the, 'R' , 'X', 'XXX', 'Super Quad X' rated sites there is and the MSE popped up flags saying, 'VIRUS QUARANTINED and REMOVED' that were caught. Ran MalwareBytes and Emsisoft Anti-Malware to double check and found zero problems.
So I stuck with MSE and Win 7 firewall with Tiny Wall.... Secret thing to do with MSE is to update when you sign on. MSE downloads updates every 30-45 minutes, but only downloads automatically 2 or 3 times a day to your system.
But still a good system even though the test you read shows different.
Manual updating takes about 33 seconds.....and all this is FREE.
