Norton better? I'm shivvering scared. Norton is like a plague. Have you ever tried removing it from your machine? To completly remove Norton from your machine you must first download a tool from symantec, that's kind of like removing malware, right?
As far as Mcafee is concerned, what a joke.
There are far far better Security suites available, and alot of them are freeware.
Just my opinion, and I know opinions are like ........ everybody has one.

Go for Norton! Mcafee is a resource hog and a real pain in the butt! I paid $50.00 for mine and threw it away 6 days later!

I now use Grisoft AVG. This is even better than Norton in my opionion! :tazz:

I don't use Norton Internet Security, but I do own a copy of their AntiVirus 2005 software and it is just about the single most wonderful anti-virus program ever. Yes, it is dreadfully expensive, and users tend to have more bad than good to say about it but - what the heck. I use Norton and I have nothing but praise for it.

As for McAfee, well. I'd comment on it but the last time I used it was years ago, back when Windows 98 was like, THE operating system of the year and anyway, malware and hackers and the like weren't such a gigantic issue then so I don't recall much about it. So I suppose I'd go for Norton. ^^

In my experience Norton is better. I had Norton and then switiched to McAfee after which I had continual problems. After 4 weeks I had serious spyware probs, that I couldn't fix without reinstalling. Needless to say I no longer have McAfee, now have AVG (free), Zonealarm (free), spybot, adaware and MS antispyware. Will never go near McAfee again.

:tazz: I think norton is better then mcafee. Trend Micro is far by the best of all anti-virus and anti-spyware programs! Noron is the pain to uninstall but i guess it is ok to use. I use trend and my Computer company does as well.

Soooo many opinions, lol
