Norton Anti-Virus2011
« on: December 05, 2011, 03:44:46 AM »
Hey guys. I'm new here and I thought I/d let you know that I have Norton Anti-Virus Security and it has to be one of the best out there! It's very easy to use and it works very well at apprehending viruses. Aside from the cost, I think everyone who is currently dealing with viruses should use the free trial to their needs.

I think you are the only person on this forum who would actually recommend Norton. There are better Anti-Viruses out there.

NAV is an excellent product. It's among the best anti virus utilities available.

So, just use it during the free trial period, right?   ::)

I posted this a couple of weeks ago on another thread.

Maximum PC magazine just did a rating on av programs.  They rated Norton as best of the paid programs with a 9+ rating and all of the free programs rated from 6 to 8.  Based on that you usually, but not always, get what you pay for since McAfee was rated a 5.

Since Comcast is my ISP I get Norton for "free" and it's worked fairly well for me.

And I know if you get 10 people to rate anything you will get 10 different opinions.

I say that the "right" antivirus is a combo of personal preference and detection. While another product may offer slightly more detection, some feel content with an AV that they prefer. Most modern AV solutions are similar in detection and on par with each other. Keyword: most.
