    I've used Norton Internet Security for several years, and am wondering if it's worth renewing my subscription. Are there more reasonably priced options that do just as well?

    My friend who knows a heck of a lot more about this kind of stuff than I do suggested I just get avast www.avast.com, which seems to do a perfectly fine job for me and has the added bonus of being free.

    We use AVG for our PC. It's been free, but I think they're about to start charging us. It's OK. I'll pay for it, since we've had no issues.

    I use McAfee on the desktop because it came with it. I use Zone Alarm on my laptop and gladly pay for it each year

    I've been using it for a while, and it's been absolutely fine. No problems at all.

    It's a new update they've come out with. You have to do a bit of digging, but they still have a free version (also updated). Understandably, they don't make that real clear.

    Here's your link to AVG Free, version 8.


    The download from their server seems to work better than trying from downloads.com.

    Get rid of Norton, and I feel the same way about Mcaffe -- AVG picks up stuff those two miss. I've been using AVG more than 10 years now and I swear by it.

    I think that's Norton's M.O. We're going to use so much of your computer's available memory, you CAN'T get a virus.
