Ok, Last time: Norton Or AVG Free?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I've tried NOD32, Kaspersky. I am now using norton.
I wanted to know, generally speaking, if I could use AVG Free and be
just as safe as I am with Norton?

I am wanting something that loads really fast and doesn't use tons of
resources/cpu time like Norton seems to do. Is AVG Free an option?

thanks, sorry to be sorta repeating myself but It's important to me.

AVG Free or Stay with Norton?

Last time?  Nah. Someone else will ask the same question tomorrow.

What happened to your CPU cycles?

Actually, you are safest if you practice Safe Hex. An anti-virus program
is only a supplement to this.

Oh. The answer to CPU cycles ...  ;-)  AVG Free is ok, as are others.
Except maybe McAfee, which is just as intense as Norton.

Note that Add/Remove Programs does not completely remove Norton. See:

Do I run that program before I use remove tool from control panel, or
use it _before_ removing norton with add/remove in control panel???

thanks

I believe it is after the Add/Remove uninstall...

Given these two choices...  AVG would be my whole-hearted recommendation.

I would choose AntiVir or Avast before AVG.
