Anything is better than Norton...If you want to lose memory and slow your m/c to a crawl then go ahead with either of their products.
Malwarebytes and MSE are far, far lighter in memory 'payload' terms and as efficient (if not moreso)...
I recommend Microsoft Security Essential, used to have Norton but sacked it off in favour of MSE, less invasive than Norton and more efficient i think.
I would not use any norton product even if it was free. It slows even powerful computers to a crawl.
Another vote hear for MSE - seems to work really well.
I've got Norton 360 and yes, Norton used to slow your PC down, but not any longer. I have a large PC and 2 laptops in the house and all of them run smoothly. 360 is the best security on the market today, plus you get fantastic back-up. You can cover 3 PC. It has stop countless attacks from the internet and I highly recommend it
I agree, Microsoft Security Essential is the one. It's free, it's written for Windows by the people who made Windows so it doesn't make your system start to runn at a snails pace.
My Father was still using Norton and I was gob smacked when I found out he was paying £65 a year to renew it! I changed him over to MSE straight away!

A friend of mine was doing the same thing until recently.
She's had no end of malware/viruses etc. and finally got shot of it when the local computer shop, who kept charging her to fix it, told her to get something else.
Personally, I haven't used it for years.
Bullguard for me.......
I object to paying Irish VAT on Norton products.
I use AVAST and System Mechanic and they are pretty good and have done their job as advertised with no affect to PC speed.
3 pcs and a laptop all running the free version of AVAST....no complaints.....stuart

I hope you're not speaking to soon!
I've been using Free Avast for about three years and something unpleasant did once get past it but upon subsequent investigation, it seems that it was sufficiently unpleasant that it would have got past most things!
Another vote for Avast which I've found just fine over a few years on several PCs and is free
I never liked Norton. It kills malware, but it turns your computer into a slug. Microsoft Security Essentials must have knocked the bottom out of the paid-for security business because it is perfectly good and free. I have never used Avast, but I have also only ever heard good things about it. The bottom line is that there is no need to pay for protection. Either of the above two will serve you well. For the occasional deep scan, there is always House Call, which is also free.
