I used Norton 4 years back. But it slows down the system. That's why I stopped using it. Now I use the Avast 4 Home Edition. I also used AVG antivirus, and tried the nod32. All of them works fine. I didn't try Kaspersky PC antivirus, but I used that on my mobile phone. It worked well.

Norton is the best. I am using it for years. No problem at all with virus if you keep it update everytime.No other antivirus have such a long variety of antivirus included in it. The best part of norton is it updates itself with recent viruses developed and downloads the necessary antivirus files without disturbing you.

I use anti- virus software for teh safety of my computer. I think the best anti virus softwares are: symantec, norton and AVG. I have AVG and I am so satisfied with its performance. It was able to clean so many viruses on my pc that my first anti vuruses werent able to clean.

Hi! it's just lately when my husband discovered that kaspersky is much better than norton, though norton is very much reliable source of anti virus because its been a long time since norton discovered, but according to my husband kaspersky is now the most in demand anti virus, well if i am you i will still choose norton, norton is easy to install and easy to update in the internet.. but if you confused what to do try to search in the internet for norton and kaspersky and try to compare its capabilities according to their discription..

I am now using NOD32, up-to-date and I am satisfied in how it works, not too much memory used, the scan engine good. At this hour the bes antivirus program is Norton Antivirus 2007, it uses many resources but it worth trying it.

If you don't mind paying for antivirus software (and I'm assuming you don't), Kaspersky would probably be the best. It and CyberDefender are the fastest ones to update, and Kaspersky still offers the ability to create rescue disks, in case a virus manages to cripple your system before the antivirus can stop it. If you want something that's free, I'd recommend either CyberDefenderFREE or AOL Safety and Security Center. CyberDefender uses machine analysis to detect new threats within an hour of receiving a sample from you or any other client, so it won't miss much. But it doesn't come with its own firewall, so you'd need to get one elsewhere. Kerio is my recommendation here, as long as it's compatible with your machine. AOL S&SC is an all-in-one suite, complete with antivirus (McAfee), antispyware(CA PestPatrol), and a competent firewall (McAfee Personal Firewall Express).

Before I chose the Kaspersky software,but it just so so. I am using ewido anti-spyware software now and plus the rising defender,that's perfect.

i'm using avast. this is the first time i'm using it and in my opinion, it's pretty good. i haven't tried kaspersky before but you could give it a go and share with us your experience with it then hehe ;) ..norton is pretty good too, but sometimes i think it slows down my computer..i do have it, but that's just because it came with the notebook that i purchased.
