    I've always trusted NOD32, hasn't failed me yet. Also uses very little resources, unlike Norton.....

    I haven't used Kaspersky, but from what I've read, it's a solid choice as well.

    Really? Have you used Norton now? or Norton '08?

    I don't mean to start the boring war again, but I would on any day chose Norton.. its very good, very light and very efficient too. Norton products have come a long way, and are right up there with the leading security suites.

    Ahh yes.. the great Anti Virus wars :D

    Everyone will have their preference of course, but I always say the more info the better :)

    Norton 08 was the last version I used for a length of time, and it was definitely lighter than the 07 version, but I still found it weighty compared to others. Doesn't mean it's not effective at it's job though :)

    I have used Norton '08, and recently upgraded to Norton '09 and its been very light and very efficient. I even had some post' around with screen shots of Norton '09 and its system resource usage.. almost negligible I would say. Let me see if I can find those posts and attachments..

    In this post you can find a link to an extensive Security Suites test.
    Check the Protectstar PDF link, all the suites you mentioned have been tested.
    Download the trial versions of your favourite 2 suites and use them both for a week so you know exactly what you'll be purchasing.
    (I'd advice NIS2009 or KIS2009 btw).
    Cheers.

    Just curious, have you had any experience with Norton 360?

    If you're looking at a security package (anti-virus, firewall, anti-spyware), go with Kasp. If you just want an anti-virus program, NOD is a good choice.


    ComputerMD82: There were a few threads awhile back on Norton 360. Try running a search and see if it pops up anything.
