Hello,

I was just wondering since my Norton Internet Security 2005 will be expiring soon what would be a good antivirus program to get. Should I just stick with Norton? I like Norton for the most part, but it really is a resource hog. Also, if I do want to get another antivirus program, will I ever be able to totally wipe Norton off of my system so that it will not interfere with the new program? I was just looking for suggestions from people that know what they're talking about (Geeks to Go Staff).

Let me know what you think.

Thanks in advance

Alas, I would put my recommendations, but I am not a Geeks to Go staff.

Cheers,

norton does use a lot of resources but I've used it for years and had no trouble uninstalling it yet.

If you want something with a small footprint, then you should try AVG. It's also free.

a free year's subscription to ezantivirus comes with every installation of win xp. it's just a bit hard to find. it also has a small footprint and scans extremely quickly, which means its either extremely efficient or doesnt do any work :tazz:
