Lousy Firewall just a bit better than windows
Even Free Antivirus like Comodo AV, AVG Free, Avira Free & PC tools Free is better than it.

Annoying pop ups
Very Slow Scan Speed
Poor anti virus & antispyware
Inefficient anti spam & antiphsing

Norton Defrag is just a little better than windows xp or vista.
Yes, their virus descriptions make really for an interesting reading.
Maybe one day they will include their great knowledge in their detection database and removal routines as well? Who knows?
When there’s no fine security company out there that hasn’t been already killed by them, maybe then they will really decide to kill malware, too? I mean, any serious 'n mean serial killer needs fresh victims from time to time, so why would Symantec make a difference here?
yeah, there’s serious issue regarding norton/symantec uninstallation (:AGY) . why such a giant security company like symantec can’t make a better user friendly program? or maybe they’re waaaaaaayyy too smart than most people in the world ???
BUT, we need to be fair right?
what’s the worst AV of 2007, maybe we should vote :
CAVS 1.1 BETA.
well, i never use it, but there are many complaints about CAVS 1.1, mostly about
uninstallation issue and worse ==> poor detection rate.
i love the CAVS 2 btw. (R)
(:AGL)That is a good choice. I am using Bitdefender 2008(v11). You should upgrade to it more powerful than version 10 & higher detection rates than v10 & lighter than nod32 in using system resources!!!. Bitdefender 10 is good but very resource hungry. Also have kaspersky internet security & nod32 as an on demand scanner.
One thing about NORTON too. Very hard to uninstall, have to format my harddisk first. But I heard they have Norton removal tool, never tried it though (:NRD)
