Windows 7: Norton 360 and windows 7

NIS is a AV cum Firewall. N360 is all in one. Firewall+AV+Backup+Tuneup

Its damn gud. Try it. No harm in it. You would face some weird issues if u r installing N360 after NIS if NIS is not properly removed.

So download and run the Norton Removal Tool. Restart the machine, then install N360.

All good advice from everyone. I will try the 360, as you say no harm trying it. I will get the unistall tool from norton and do that first.
Thanks again to all replies. By the way, how do you mark a thread sorted.

Norton 360 would be a good replacement.

You may not need the removeal tool, as Norton 360 will remove on install.

pfft Norton is a bad anti virus, kinda improved but get kaspersky, Eset, or Zone Alarm.

Virus Bulletin : VB100 results summary
Norton isnt even listed here.

For nice protection I suggest getting, Kaspersky, or Eset or Zonealarm (having multiple anti virus, can make them interact with eachother and crash your PC). If having Eset or Kaspersky Disable windows firewall and get zonealarm firewall. Also get superantispyware and malwarebytes.

Suites come with their own firewall - so what is the point of Zonealarm and 2 anti malware tools? For what?

Different Anti Spyware finds different malicious programs, thats why some find more then others, having 2 will increase the chance off finding a trojan aswell as the ZoneAlarm anti Spyware really aint the best you can get.

Having 1 Anti Spyware can be dangerous, I had Ad-Aware, Claimed to be amongst 2009's best, didnt find any Malcious programs, malwarebytes found 10.

I have no antimalware except one suite on each of my PC's. You don't need them unless your system has been compromised.
