My Toshiba laptop came with a free trial of Norton which has now expired. Am not particularly keen on Norton & would rather have a free application if there is one available. Am concerned about virus/spyware after recent Vista bug.
I would appreciate your views on what virus/spyware/firewall applications I should install? How do I then uninstall Norton?
I had AVG free application on an older laptop & that seemed to work fine.
I've used that free version for years from the filehippo site adman put up and it's been brilliant. I've never ever had one problem with viruses ever since having installed it. It's much easier to configure than AVG and just gets on with its job in the background a treat. No fuss no messing it just does its job 100% - must be the German 'efficiency' thing, no frills just 100% workmanship and quality. A really fine product even for the pc illiterate brigade, can't ask much more than that for free.Anyone who buys a 'pay for' software product for such stuff as anti virus must want their bumps felt. It's as if, Ohh, I paid for this therefore it must be better than something that's free. Fuzzy logic that's what I call it : - )
