As mattyc_92 has said, I'm glad I stopped aswell. I spent a fortune on some of their products over the years, but not any more.

Glad that I stick to the old faithfuls, like free Avast and AVG :O)

Interesting to read the posting from Mick underneath.

Whatever you say Chandler. Cheerlead all you want. I still say they all suck! Every antivirus program out there is one "update" away from destroying a computer, that is if it hasn't already.

I'm not suggesting that people don't use an antivirus. I use one. I just come from the school of thought that the antivirus is often worse for your computer than the viruses it is "protecting" you from. ""

I've never heard of the "school of thought" he comments on. I'm really surprised that with an attitude like his he even has a computer yet alone uses it.

they have adverts for for norton stuff on the page after telling us there no good.

Nav is this months prize draw in the mag. I still like Norton firewall & NAV [and have 2005 edition]so if any of the anti norton brigade win it I would be happy to accept it rather than you toss it in the bin with your bargepoles.

I too spent an absolute fortune on Symantec/Norton products down at PC World. I even recieved 2 viruses from NAV 2005. Been using AVG ever since, no viruses and it doesn't use half the resources norton did

I agree with sunny staines, since my version NAV 2006 has been working rather well as of late.

I seem to have read about this problem with Symantec some time ago, so it is old news. I also believe it has been fixed. J.B.
