let's ignore any pricing here. I want to know straight facts without biased advertising web pages telling me what. I have kaspersky on a disk that i put it on when i wanted to instal norton instead (so they don't conflict with each other).

general answer is...when comparing anything and norton....anything usually wins.....but some will disagree...and quite a few will agree and speak for hours about it....alot of it comes down to preference...but the most important thing...is that norton is trying soooo very hard to become unremovable from your system and completely integrated in there....that it causes more and more issues...it works (usuall) and they (usually) keep updated relatively well...but there are known issues with all norton products....kapersky is very good...and most people here tout nod32 as the creme de la creme

Yah, Norton is pretty rubbish its detection and removal rates are worse than most of the free AVs, Kapersky is excellent, and Nod32 also excellent.

I'm not sure...If your subscription has run out, you should definately consider removing it from your machine.

Kaspersky is coming out with a new and improved 2006 version soon, so I would hold out for that. Supposedly, NOD32 is coming out with a new, easier to use version soon too. If you can't wait either of those 2 are your best bet for paid anti-virus software.
