[citation][nom]zybch[/nom]So Toms has started shilling for Symantec now as well as apple. Figures.Only a complete idiot would infect their computer with anything from either company.For those (few) that claim that norton is better than it was, well thats hardly a difficult achievement. Sure, it might use up fewer resources but it still reduces all but the speediest PCs 10-20% and delights in barraging the poor user with a cacophony of annoying popups and prompts when even simplest tasks are attempted.However, thesedays there are precious AVs that don't do this. I used to love AVG but it got slow and bloated, then I switched to Avast which has recently become Elvis Presley fat and slow. Now the most lightweight but still effective seems to be MS's Security Essentials.Who knows what I'll be getting my lients to switch to when it goes all OneCare on us.[/citation]
I think its good that Toms is teaming up with someone to give away free stuff, admittedly I wouldn't touch anything Norton related with a s****y stick but that's just me and it mean I stand a zero chance of winning anything.
I wouldn't advocate other people not doing so
If you want to put Norton on your machine then go right ahead, worst case scenario is it makes you machine a bit slower, best case you get a Blu Ray player, and if it all goes wrong you can still uninstall it
(albeit with the elusive Norton Removal Tool)
