    Hi all.

    This is my first post, I hope find some answers here! First of all, excuse my bad english.

    I'm trying to renew my antivirus software, and following some advices I'm installing Norton IS 2006, and my old Panda Platinum looks better...

    Why should I switch to Norton? Everybody claims is better, but I feel I'm loosing a lot changing to Norton.

    Please, help!

    Thanks a lot!

    Joaquin

    If you are happy with Panda stick to it

    I don't consider Norton better than Panda

    Ok, first off, each member here has his own view here so here is mine which is a fair as the next member who will probably has his own view, no one is wrong here.

    When you look at AVs you have to weigth of what one gains against what one loses. The gain is protection, the loss is performance be reduced but the AV, in short: a suit of armore, how heavy, how protective so to speak.
    One other factor is important here, each year the suit changes Panda 04 was the best I thought, from the feedback of the humans in the shop, Etrust too was good. This year, I had many clients where the uninstall of Norton was impossible for them, and so Norton came out with a self removal tool and we have used it with success.

    Norton in my view is both heavy and not very protective. The number of malware threads in the security forum here will show you that. Also there is price, Norton usual costs more than the others.

    Panda too, has had a lot of computers refuse it's installation, on a certain type of computer that is, not knowning what the human had, we could not go on selling that too. Edwido seems to be the AV recommended alot here but it is heavy as in resorse hog.
    Leaving AVG, as the one I would recommend you.

    One small last point, oddly some humans think that putting two AVs on their comps is good, NO infact it can really ruin the system and everything can jam by it. So only one AV should be running then.

    I hope this helps then.

    Thanks a lot for your answer, that's also my point of view. Many people claims that Panda is not good, but now I think they're wrong!
