Norton BLOWS in every possible way!!!
|At zonealarm.org, one person reports talking with various representatives of Symantec for two hours without receiving any answer as to why inquiries posted on the Symantec forums were being deleted. The caller was told that PIFTS.exe is part of Symantec's update installation process, was denied any further information regarding the purpose of the file and was repeatedly transferred to a new representative when asking why inquiries about PIFTS.exe were being deleted from Symantec's forums.|

It is most likely a possible Norton exploit that they are keeping quiet; not some program that beams home credit card info to Norton, or the government.
McAfee just needs to go away, at the 2 organizations I have worked at that use it, both might as well not have any anti-virus at all. Infact the first place switched from Norton to McAfee and has had relentless virus issues after the switch.
The new Norton has been almost completely re-written, and is much much more effective (not to mention uses under 10mb of RAM).

The amount of resources it uses is minimal, there is virtually no performance decrease when using it, and it picks up nearly everything. Im happy to use it on my sig rig.
