    So I think F-Prot is worth looking at...

    (I use Linux so it's not so much of a problem).

    Is F-Prot made by the same people who make F-Secure?

    I would recommend using Grisoft AVG Free..or Pro.

    Being a former CCSP(CastleCops Security Professionals) traniee, I had to learn alot of things like this..btw

    So, my answer would be AVG. Toss Norton out of the window. All that program does is take over your computer like spyware

    NOD32 & Kaspersky are good alternatives to Norton, but..
    When you uninstall Kaspersky it takes some of your system drivers, lol..
    NOD32 has bad reaction when virus comes..

    ..so stay with Norton

    Yes, Avast is a good antivirus. Worth mentioning too are Avira and Eset Nod32. Both have been easy to use, reliable, fast, and not a resource hog.

    Been using AVG for over 5 years and never had a virus in all that time. I used to have McAfee till they forced you to pay for the virus can updates. I use the free version from Grisoft and have been very happy with it. Very low overhead and many features can be customized even in the free version.
