I think Norton ranked the highest last time, but no AV is 100% secure. At work I might scan something with one, remove threats, and scan with another one and find more threats.

It ranked highest because it comes installed on most pc's and is only used by AOL types that don't know the difference between memory and storage!! I would go without before I ran that resource hog crap!!!

Never been a resource hog on any of the machines I've used it on.
Also found viruses that other paid for AV software has missed.

OP, next time do a search on here before posting a new thread. This has been gone over many many many times. Numerous threads about it.

That said, I can't find it now, but this site has a questionare that you fill out and it gives you the best av and fw for your needs.

I use avira (antivirus), malwarebytes (anti malware), and comodo (firewall). I love comodo. Best firewall I've ever used. If you do connect to open wifi alot, I would suggest this. If you install programs to try them out, comodo, if you do anything at all of any risky behavior, comodo.

I think you have to upgrade your computer. Norton never was a resource hog for me. And the ranking wasn't based on how many people have it. It was a test where they had a bunch of AVs scanning for the same thing, and see which one finds the most.

Ms security essentials and maleware bytes free. Use ms security essentials for real time protection, If you think you've got a virus, enter safe mode and use maleware bytes to remove.
