Recently, there have been various pop ups from Norton Antivirus 2004 saying:

Error: "Norton AntiVirus has encountered an internal program error . . ." (3029,14)

It asks me to uninstall and re-install Norton Antivirus. I've been using it for a while, and can't really complain, although it is rather slow. I'll probably have to end up uninstalling it, but should I still use it? Many have told me that Norton is one of the worst antivirus programs out there. I have ZoneAlarms Security Suite, which has antivirus abilities, but can't be used along with Norton Antivirus. If I uninstall Norton, should I just replace it with the ZoneAlarms virus protection?

Thanks

to resolve the technical issue you will need to uninstall and reinstall the software.

yes norton is a resource hog. it does its job well enough though. I recently moved from norton to avg. its free and does a pretty good job. The only thing I don't like about it is that it requires a reboot when it updates the program (not just the definitions).

zone alarm antivirus is new enough that we don't have any data on it.
