norton is basically malware that got popular because they paid a bunch of manufacturers to install it, there are free choices that do a lot better and don't incoherently rage at you for nothing

I see, thanks. My subscription is up soon and I think I will be looking at others but I'm not sure just what. I hear MaAfee is good, or is there better?

just use avast tbh.

free and effective.

but if you want to pay for good security then kaspersky is the way forward really.

stay well clear of both norton and macafee.

New Honda Civic Type R, at the Nurburgring if anyone was interested.

As for internet security I just get by using Windows Defender, never had any issues (but I do try my hardest not to click on anything that looks remotely dodgy) and it doesn't seem obtrusive, best paid one I've used has been Kasperky.

I really have no idea why people hate on Norton. I had a real bad virus that not even free Malwarebytes could find. System Restored back to the beginning of time, and Norton picked it up and removed it straight-away. Since that point, it's certainly been helpful.

Anyway, this is the post your desktop thread, so here's mine [though soon to be changed].

Made for the 40th of Star Wars, it's got original and prequel films and animated series, as well as that snazzy 40th poster [which I have larger on my lock screen]. The blue bar on the left is where my taskbar fits.

It massively impacts system performance and is expensive. Yes it does actually scan for viruses and Norton is a pretty big company, so yes it can be useful. But there are comparable AVs that are less resource intensive and cheaper.

That actually makes sense.
I used to use AVG Free. It was alright, I suppose.
