The popular Kaspersky & NOD 32 failed to detect and prevent the virus attacked that caused the reformatting of all PC in my previous company on different occasion, except my system & my buddy who are both using Norton Systemworks that time. (1st company IT recommends & used NOD32, 2nd company IT used Kaspersky IS. I have the privilege to to put whatever I want in my PC so I am using Norton which proved to be better that the latter). True that previously It will really bog down your PC's performance, but I can guarantee you that Norton's bad reputation of slowing your system down is history. They successfully fixed it since the release of their 2009 products. I am now using Norton 360 v4.0 (v3.0 last year) and never had any problem in computer performance. I am a designer and I am running graphics & memory hungry programs at least 3 open at the same time (Maya, 3D Studio Max, Photoshop, Illustrator to name some).

I'd like to chime in on this comment.

I have been using Norton 360 since v1. Even then it was a step in the right direction for Norton. With each release since, It keeps getting better and better.

I know Norton had it's dark period, and it's very hard to break yourself away from a bad reputation. But all software goes through it. Even Windows went through it with Vista. Try explaining to people that have heard all of the horror stories of how horrible Vista was, that it is now a stable and reputable OS.

Norton does not dig it's claws of death into your OS anymore than other AV suites. In fact, most uninstalled software leaves traces behind somewhere.

I have no affiliation with Symantec in any way shape or form. I'm just a user. If someone is having issues with their PC, The AV is the easiest component to blame.
As the OP has resolved his problem without getting rid of Norton.

I'm just gonna post a screen shot just to show how light weight Norton has become. You don't have to like Norton or even suggest it to anyone, I just think it needs to be said that this is not 2003 anymore. Norton has gotten to the bottom of it's past issues, and over time have ironed out all of the kinks.

I don't mean this post to be disrespectful in any way shape or form Greg.. I admire and agree with 99.9% of the advice that you give on these forums. I just wanted to make that clear.

Thanks guys. Points well taken.

My stereotypes of bloatware have been updated accordingly, as they seem to be out of date given the experiences here of those who I trust. .

So I've got the Windows 7 Beta installed on my Pentium 4 and every so often it just randomly shuts down. Now I've heard about the 7 beta doing this, but as I understand it's not supposed to start doing this until March 2010. What's going on?
