Seriously...

Put this in any other perspective and you'd see why you're both clueless...

It's like that Burger King that I used to love when I was a kid, my friend's brother said to never eat there because they spit in the drinks and the food they serve is often dropped on the floor before being put back into what you're buying... then a few years later, you get a job there and people are still spitting in the food and picking up burgers... Then a few years later, you go in and see employees picking their noses and handling food without washing their hands...

Well, after a decade and a half of that, all of a sudden I'm going to get the urge to go back because maybe they don't do all of that any more and maybe it's better now.

And having many customers over the years with problems being attributable directly to Norton bloatware and strong arm robbery, I'm just all-of-a-sudden jump on the bandwagon and love their products?

My long standing hatred of Symantec for so many reasons are quite valid.

And I don't care how great the iphone and Apple may be either, I don't care for their products or their business practices.

So you guys should at least get a clue. I don't care and I'm not willing to give them a chance, and any idiot who would trust all their malware problems to one software suite (indicative of most of the people who actually subscribe to Norton) really need to get a clue and figure out they'll be far more secure using several freeware applications instead.

What freeware? the only decent i know are Comodo and Avast,

Also...who said that i trust only 1 product? i use,

Emisosoft anti malware - free
Malwarebyte anti malware - free
Hitman Pro - free

All this like a supplementary with Norton, don't come to wrong conclusions, please. And stop calling people idiots for using an security products? its wrong in every possible way.

And yes you got no idea how security products works at all, since your talking bad stuff about Norton prodcuts atm, and if you dont trust me chek out the official rankings and results from test labs on previous page, now if u dont like the company policy thats another thing, but bringing down product just because you don't like its idiotic, when you already call use idiots, let me be unmannered and mark you as one as well.

I'm using the latest version of Norton and love it. I really like the file reputation thing too. I'll agree it used to suck big time, but now it's great.

I love how people have no clue what they are talking about and post as if they do?

I beta-tested for a lot of AV companies and one thing I loved to do to test it is get a group of viruses together and see which is missed, caught, etc. Norton actually does a pretty good job, and has a decent firewall. Kaspersky is not bad too. I love Eset for their heuristic scanning and for the network infection detection.

All AV's have their own advantages and disadvantages. Yes, some people can get by without AV. But seriously, that's like having sex without a condom. If you abstain and/or remain monogamous, sure your chances of remaining safe are fairly decent. (Note, I'm talking STDs not pregnancy... in which case monogamy would not help). However, as soon as you decide to be experimental, try things out, browse unsafely... that's when you really need to ensure you are using an antivirus... sure, if the condom breaks you can still get the STD/STI, but most paid AVs are not as susceptible to breaking.

Anyways, I hope people wisen up with their analogies... just because your PC has armor on it does not mean a virus will discern you as a more viable target. Viruses love to infect... they don't respond to threats like humans do. Yes, in real life a terrorist will take out the threat first, and yes there ARE viruses designed to CIRCUMVENT certain antiviruses, BUT that does not mean they TARGET those antiviruses.

IMHO the most strongest module of Norton is the behavior blocker (Sonar)

Look at the results..vs zero day malware..amazing...


Oh and from the paid products, beside Kaspersky which has the best firewall and HIPS on the market (together with Comodo) i would highly recommend Emsisoft internet security pack as great product as well.
