Norton Anti Virus 2004

I use AV 2003 and have recently renewed my subscription to August 2004 re data updates etc. I have just seen that version 2004 has been released. Is it worth me upgrading just for a new search engine or should I say as I am until my sub expires and then upgrade versions.

It is personal preferance, do you want a new scanning engine?

I paid on line to renew mine and it wont take the subscription number !! useless.

Apparently the new NAV 2004 also starts to search for "spyware" too...

But why pay? AVG click here is free.

I got the upgrade for 2004, as my sub was just up, and have to say im happy..

I did a scan after i loaded it and it 'found' several files , spyeare, that 2003 did not find.

Also it found a Kazaa file ( i did have kazaa long long time ago!!), Spybot never found it, and kazaabegone never found it...

Your call if its worth it...
