  • Yes it is nice, free, and does not require as many resources to have running. I use it.
  • From my experience, I find AVAST is much, much better. Try it, it's free.
  • I've used it for almost a year on 3 computers. It catches the baddies and doesn't hog resources like Norton does. Besides which, it's FREE, no subscriptions! Actually, Norton itself behaves like a virus! I had tried AVAST but found I liked AVG better.
  • Norton is a horrible, horrible AntiVirus software. It's like trying to fight AIDS with Herpes. It just doesn't work. AVG is a great free program.
  • I like AVG, and Avira. AVAST is also good.
  • I've had both and I prefer AVG. I also use two other free wares: AdwareSE Personal and Spy Bot. I'm happy with all 3. The combination seems to work well.
  • AVG is good, but I prefer NOD32.
  • A - A V - Very G - Good Choice
  • Running unprotected is a good replacement for Norton, relatively speaking. Not only is AVG better, it's cheaper too :) Of course, Avira beats them both :D
  • absolutely not!! AVG is garbage, use Avast or Kapersky.
  • All my computers have AVAST Pro on them.... Norton is too much of a memory hog. & doesn't catch e-nuff. Never tried Kapersky.... it might be good.
  • Well, I have never used Norton.I have been using AVG Anti-virus for quite sometime. I also have AVG Anti-Spyware and AVG Anti-Rootkit.(I got that Anti-Rootkit only a few days ago.)No complaints.
  • Norton bites. Its a resource hog, and it's not as good as some others that cost far less. AVG is an excellent alternative. I use Kaspersky. It costs more that AVG, but is superior to AVG and Norton in many ways.
  • of course it is.
  • yes so far it is the best antivirus available and free
  • AVG and Norton are both good but it depends do you trust AVG or Norton? or is either one of them full ask yourself I hope this helps.
  • The Free one or the Paid one. If your on about the Free one then Nope. Nortan has proper Internet Shield protection, Avg (free) doesn't, plus it has very and i mean very low detection rates. However if your on about the Paid version, then i would probably still stick with Nortan, but i suppose Avg (paid) is ok for Average users. Here: The two best Free ones to use: Avast and Avira The two best Paid for ones to use: Kaspersky and Bit-Defender Here are some useful sites with Free and Paid for softwares: http://download.com http://download.hr http://filehippo.com http://tucows.com http://softpedia.com http://brothersoft.com I hope this answers your question, but if you need anymore information you can email me. selwood.ryan@live.co.uk
  • get avast, AVG is garbage and misses alot of things that my other programs pick up instantly... saying that norton is also crap so I guess trading one piece of crap for another piece of crap is just a crappy situation all together...
  • You don't need Norton. AVG works just fine, I don't have any problems with it.
  • The best replacement for norton is avg. The best alternatives to norton are rated as following: Google Enter your search terms Submit search form ***** avg ***** mcafee *** kaspersky ** avast ** windows firewall ** symantec ** zone alarm * nod32 * panda * ali * trend pc cillin trend micro zonealarm olin avira eset mcafee antivirus Hope it helps you.
  • McAfee.
  • AVG has work wonderfully well in my pc for quite a while now.
  • I would not recomend AVG in the slightest - it may protect against some viruses, but there are still adware, spyware, and other malicious material that can enter your computer undetected by AVG. I personally use ESET Smart Security. It serves me fine, and is quite cheap. My computer has never been infected with a virus as I use ESET and I do all kinds of things that could potentially get me some. I have had the product for about 2 years now and it never fails to update the virus signature database. STRONGLY RECOMENDED PRODUCT! You can check it here --> http://www.eset.com/ Try it for free and see if you like it!
  • Yes and No. Avg: Avg has very low detection rates, but is better than nothing. Norton: Norton is a very good Anti-Virus but hogs (takes up) your memory up like mad. Unless you have a lot of memory, Norton is not the best Anti-Virus to use. Here is my recommendation: For a FREE Anti-Virus use Avast, and that is for everybody using something like Avg or ClamWin etc. Avast is the only FREE one with Full-Time-Monitoring unlike Avg and ClamWin, they dont monitor nothing, you have to Scan your computer in order to detect a Virus. With Avast, it will let you know whether a Virus/Spyware/Rookit etc has come in contact with your computer at the exact time it tries to enter your computer, from there you can choose send to Virus Chest, like Avg with the Virus Vault. For a PAID for Anti-Virus use either Bit-defender or Kaspersky Internet Security. They both have the same results, apart from that Bit-defender was rated 1st and KIS was rated 2nd, look here: http://anti-virus-software-review.toptenreviews.com I am a computer expert, but everyone has their won opinion on Anti-Virus software therefore i can not guarantee you will be happy with any of these i have mentioned. If you need any info or help, u can email me. selwood.ryan@live.co.uk
  • Kaspersky be gud replacement other thn norton,I am still using Pc security advisor
  • do not listen to other member. Norton is a better anitvirus software then AVG. One example is that AVG doesnt scan your E-mail before you download and Norton does.
  • Nope here's an independant antivirus comparison site: http://www.av-comparatives.org/
  • Yeh... a AVG is a god replacement for Norton.
  • Norton and mcAfee will both slow down and screw up your computer. AVG is very good both the free version and the purchased one. I have used it for years. I also use Malware. It checks for more than just viruses and more indepth for each portion of all files.
  • Yes AVG is good replacement for Norton..
  • 360 Total Security, or the paid version of Malwarebytes.
  • Yes. But it's horrible and they also sell on your data. Best go for Avira or Avast instead.
