Hi guys,

I have Norton Internet Security 2006 and was about to upgrade to Norton Internet Security 2007 but have been talking to some people who say that Kaspersky Internet Security 6.0 is much, much better ? Is this true ? Should I just bin Norton now that my subscription has expired and use Kapersky or should I stick with Norton ?

I prefer the Internet Security suites as they are AV and Firewall combined.

Thanks

I'd go with Kaspersky. Norton just isn't what it used to be.

This may merit a new post, but I have the same query about McAfee and PC-cillin. My computer's boot up time has nearly quadrupled all because of McAfee and I heard Kaspersky and PC-cillin are less resource demanding. How true is this?

Hi. I don't like Norton, and I certainly don't like McAfee. PC-Cillin is alright, but I would say that from the list you've both shown, Kaspersky would be the best option. I've only used Kaspersky on a friend's computer, but it seems less demanding. Norton certainly takes up a lot of resources.

Hello,

I did the free virus scan offered by Kaspersky and I have to say I was impressed at the malwares it detected and that were missed by McAfee. What I didn't like was the time it took to scan my entire computer--3 hours long. If I were to purchase Kaspersky Internet Security and run a scan, would it take just as long? Is there a quick scan option?

Also, does KIS conflict with MBAM?

It will take a long time if you buy it, but it is worth it. There is no quick scan as far as I know

It wont conflict with MBAM

Thanks. Unfortunately, our license of McAfee doesn't end until 2011! :)

I checked out ESET Smart Security mentioned above (NOD32). Sounds good. Does anyone out there have an opinion on this?
