Most of the regulars on here would most likely suggest AVG.

I use Norton AV Plus Norton Firewall. Is AVG better than Norton? If so Would it clash with Norton Firewall? Thanks

AVG is free. Norton costs, repeatedly. No contest!

Likewise with Norton Firewall. It costs. There are a number of free ones. I use Outpost (as does the Forum Editor).

For the AV which produces the best and most consistent results in professional tests click here. To see the test results click here (NOD32 is from eset in the tables)

Also note that NOD32 has the most minimal impact on system overhead of any of the major packages - see the nod site for this reference.

I actually use Norton Anti Virus 2003 as it came with the computer.

I just have lots of useful favourites so provided a link to the AVG site. click here

click here for some tests. AVG does not do to good, but in saying that lots of people use it on this site so it must be doing ok and catching those little pests.

Is AVG better than Norton?

Not if you look at the tests carried out by the major independant AV testing organisation - see link above.
