    Why not continue using Norton? Or did you not like how it performed?

    If your are looking for a free antivirus, check out AVG Antivirus:

    Well there are few the best
    BitDefender [second biggest antivirus databes] -> The best by my opinion
    McAfee [always winner in old date viruses] -> He got all. History and still working just fine.
    Symantec [calssic] -> I think that most of company use it (it is norton antivirus database but it works better).
    and
    Kaspersky [biggest antivirus database] (one remark -> once you start full scan you must sit near the computer until he cames to the first password protect file to ask you how to work with that kind of files and than you can went on coffie)

    All else like
    Nod32, PC Cillin and fsecure are not so good at this four up.

    And AVG is free and good.

    I'm not sure if this is going to get deleted or not, but if you just uninstall/reinstall Norton, it will magically work again!

    AVG is good, though, and you never have to bother reinstalling it (unless, of course, you're into that sort of thing)
