We used to use Norton on our home computers for years from way back when
I first got Norton Utilities for Windows 95. At the community college
where I worked they use Norton Campus Edition and it seemed to work
pretty well over a large network - there's about 10,000 PC workstations
Anyone got problems with Norton Internet Security?
We've used Norton in our home office for several years, but we got tired
of paying for it every year - because the damn rent is too high. Several
years ago I had tried Avast, the free anti-virus program - and it's
pretty good for the price - free. There's a little voice that says "Your
anti-virus has been updated" every time you boot up your computer.
Then, about a year ago I installed Microsoft Security Essentials on our
laptop computers and on my Toshiba Ultrabook, just to try it out - it's
free too. I also have a version of Kaspersky that came with the
Ultrabook which I haven't tried yet. I've also tried McAfee in the past.
I assume they all have a backdoor for the NSA - whatever.
Then, about six months ago something happened to the Microsoft
anti-virus during an update. The program wouldn't launch or install any
updates. So, I tried to install a whole new version of MIE, but it won't
install - now I can't even get the program to uninstall, so I'm stuck
with a red x when I boot up. Go figure.
So, I got the free Avast again and installed it on all our computers and
upgraded the Avast on the Ultrabook with a purchased copy. So far, it
all works good - no problems.
Did I tell you that you can get Avast for free?
