What type of internet security/Anti-Virus do you all run? I'm talking to the software boys. I'm a hardware kid

I currently run Norton, simply out of laziness to change. BUT THE TIME HAS COME!

Anybody that knows anything about computers, knows Nortan is an absolute memory hog.

I haven't been keeping up with recent security software developments over the past year or so, so I don't know where to look.

Anybody that has a good grip on the subject, please suggest something that isn't such a memory hog and wont miss a lot of viruses like Nortan does.

Nortan is simply past its prime

I use Avast! (the exclamation point is part of the name, I think)
I like it better than AVG tbh. I only used a demo of the Norton, hated it.

Norton is useless bullcrap. If you want a good AV get Comodo. Its free and better than Norton and Mcaffe combined.

Isn't Comodo a firewall?

My brother told me about this once... how does it compare to AVG, Avast, or Avira (lol, AAA)?

Norton isn't that bad. I mean it's a total memory hog and there is better security software..... but it isn't horrible.


McAfee on the other hand is absolute **** put on a CD and sold as "software."

I'm gonna try out AVG and Avast and see which one I like more, and combine one of those with the zone alarm free firewall.

Thanks boys
