i was using nortons internet security 2006 but it was a real pain slowing machine down and coming up with errors all the time, tried uninstalling and reinstalling but still did not work , but had no trouble since installing netguard and using windows own firewall
That's just the information I was hoping to hear !
I have two PC's networked togther, both have Norton Internet Security 2004 installed. On this PC the subscription expires June 2006. But on the other PC it expired 29th December - I don't want to spend £35 just to renew !
Did you find using Add/Remove programs uninstalled Norton OK, or did you have to download and run SymNRT from Symantec to get rid of it all ?
You never really know how good an AV program is until you get infected - that is the real test.
Prior to installing Netguard I had Norton, since NTL commenced checking all emails (about 6 months ago) it had detected nothing. Before that Norton was detecting about 10 per week !
The only warnings I do get occasionally from Norton is a Trojan trying to get access.
As Netguard does not include a Firewall, I will have to rely on the one included with XP - or download Zone Alarm. I had that before but it caused lot's of problems, so I will wait until the Netguard one is available.
I just did a virus scan using Netguard, and the report was far more detailed than with Norton !
