norman virus control , any good?

Hi there,
I've been offered Norman Virus Control for FREE!
The email states that this product is normally £41. I have A.V.G. Free installed, is Norman any better? Should I stick with the one I have?
I'm running W98se, Athlon 1600XP, 256Mb RAM, 40Gb HDD.

Regards, Bob.

P,S. In anticipation, knowing that someone out there will have the wisdom!

You're running AVG. Price Free.

DO you have any viruses on your computer?

If the answer is NO then why change??????

You can look at the relative performance of the two products in the Virus Bulletin tests here

I knew someone smart would pick up on the 'Norman Wisdom', well done, and thanks Djohn.
I am an avid fan of AVG, and I don't have the alerts running, thanks obbit.
Thanks leo49, no viruses thanks to AVG. I also run Zone Alarm without any PARANOIA after reading posts on this forum,and turning off alerts.
Just a general quest,after being offered something for free when I already had something.
Thanks all,
Regards, Bob.

So what were you planning to buy with all the money you would have saved? :o)

  hodder 00:26 25 Jan 2003

Thanks for that, I'll have a good look later!

Regards, Bob.

I should really buy a CD writer, I've been meaning to for ages, but it's just trying to convince her indoors!!
Now didn't Norman used to clean Windows,(THATS OPENED SOMETHING UP).

Regards, Bob.
