Norton Internet Security About To Expire.

  natural*blonde 17:05 04 Sep 2007

Hi bear with me as this is my first posting,i have Norton Internet Security on my PC and it is about to expire, i have clicked on the renew subscription and it will cost me £39.99 for another year, can anyone tell me if i was to uninstall the antivirus and run a free one will the Norton firewall still run and protect me? I only ask this as it seems that paying the £39.99 seems to be more for the anti virus definistions or am i wrong in understanding this, will the firewall not work properly allso.
Could someone advise me on this please, many thanks.

If you are running Windows XP, uninstall the whole Norton package, then install AVG (Anti-virus) and Comodo Free Firewall.

AVG Free : click here

Comodo Free Firewall : click here

Although Comodo will require a little setting up, it is pretty simple to understand.

If you're using Vista, then you can either use the built in Vista Firewall or Zone Alarm Free Firewall.

No, the Norton firewall won't run - because if you uninstall NIS you've uninstalled all aspects if it, including the firewall.

Use these excellent free programs:

And use this to completely uninstall Norton from your PC:
