I’ve been hearing more and more about Norton being unnecessarily heavy and slow, and how there are much better alternatives. Seeing as I’m basically dragging the leftover dregs of my machine until I can get a new one, it’s vital for me to not load it any more than necessary.
The question is, what exactly are these alternative and what are your opinions on them? The only name I currently remember is AVG.
Yes, they are, but Symantec Anti-Virus isn’t Norton. They’re two seperate products, with different source code; they’re based on different techology, and they’re aimed at different markets - business and home, respectivly.
