If you're looking for free anti-virus software, there is some out there. Just not Norton. Try these:

http://www.clamwin.com/
http://free.grisoft.com/doc/1
http://www.free-av.com/

These are also good for anyone (like me) who has an Intel Mac but also runs Windows on it. (Through Parallels or BootCamp.) If you run Windows at all, that partition (or whatever) of your computer needs to be protected against viruses. I personally hate to shell out money to do that when it's not even my main OS. This way, I don't have to!

Man, that's a lot of parenthetical statements in one paragraph. Smiling

I wouldn't say as good as, I would say better because Norton is a huge resource hog Sticking out tongue

I have to agree with Renegade. Back when I used Norton, it used way too many resources for what it was doing. Open source tends to be less resource intensive in general than the big company paid equivalent.

AVG is probably the best anti virus. Try zonealarm also

With anti-virus solutions, the quality depends entirely on the strength of the research team. I still use McAfee Enterprise edition since my university has a site license. I understand that Kasperksy is very good and well worth the price you pay for it.

My suggestion is rethink your need for a free AV. They are only as good as the signature database and the research team!

Whenever there's a thread on online forums there's always a token idiot who can't resist popping up and saying: 'Use Linux/OSX: you won't get a virus!' I am that token idiot ...

Use Linux: you won't get a virus!

(sorry Laughing out loud )
More seriously, not using Internet Explorer is a very good way of avoiding viruses. I ran Windows 2000 without anti-virus for years without getting problems, just didn't use IE and avoided dodgy software/web sites.

I have a paid antivirus and i am very satisfied. Free antiviruses are also good but these are only trial versions. I am using kaspersky antivirus.

Norton Anti Virus is really best for virus scanning. To improve efficiency, the producers have added some new features to this version. The anti virus gives you excellent protection on computers where it installs completely. It is very secure and the safe AntiVirus.

Hey, I am using norton just recently. My concern is I cannot view the status of my protection categories.
I also want to know the difference between norton system works basic edition, standard edition and premier edition.

The plain fact is that some people are content with something that just works. People buy used cars everyday because they just work. There is a broad range of what success can be, and a broad range of factors that weigh in on the end result. choosehottubsdirect-choose direct hot tubs. Users don't come to your site just to poke around. They usually have an agenda. They want something from you. Help them.

I use Avast! Free Antivirus is my new top pick for the best free antivirus software in light of recent developments. Avast has steadily been improving its detection rates over the past few years and now ranks with the some of the best.
