    I agree with the guy above me. But be warned sometimes they pretend to be the real thing. Make sur eyou download at a safe website or it'll be spyware.

    I actually like Norton. Its much better than McAfee that I use now. I only use it because I get it free from my ISP.

    Ugh...my McAffe didn't work right awhile ago. Somehow it got screwed up and disabled without anyone in the house realizing it...we got so many virus' that we had to reset the computer back to like April or something. No it was not any idiot like myself accidentily disabling it...well..at least I think i didnt..

    I got this big norton pack thing cheap when I bought my laptop and it hasnt slowed down my laptop or computer at all. . .

    It includes, internet security, anti virus, norton go back, live update etc etc.

    I found it great, no problems at all

    Norton tends to decide things for itself without asking you, i remember at one point it wouldnt let me us IE until I disabbled it.

    Thats better than what McAfee does. It asks you about everything. If I go change a setting in some app a big ass annoying window will pop up asking if I want to allow it.

  15. there are plenty of ways to obtain great pay for virus protection software free online....jsut cant tell you how

    but if you want LITTERALLY free, i can tell you as well to use AVG. its very user friendly and doesnt slow everything down. works well when you have spybot and ad aware removal running as well.
