        Re : Antivirus

        Neither are good, there are plenty of other Anti-virus programs that do a better job, and best of all, they are free.

            norton was ok untill version 2003, but after that they kept packaging it with lots and lots of aditional pc/adware monitoring packages... made it a pain to remove if the program currupted itself..

            Trend anti virus is a good one...

            for adware try lavasoft adware or spy bot search and destroy...

              our offices all use Panda Titanium antivirus. I've installed it on a bunch of clients computers and it works great. comes with an optional firewall and spyware checker.

              the panda spyware checker is pretty good, but for good measure i use the Ad aware spyware checking program.

              the two work well together. never had a virus yet....

                The only time I ever had a virus was when I let a certain woman use my PC, prior to that the 5 yrs I had a pc never once did I have a virus

                    Re Antivirus

                    On WinXP I use AVG and Avast!, Spybot S&D, and CClean, index.dat dumping utility, Junk File Remover, Process monitor, and various other free software, and since I mostly use Mac OSX and Linux I've never had a virus.

                          good luck mate...

                          norton is a pain in the *** to remove.. even hard in safe mode...

                          if your using fat 32 delete through the command prompt, boot up using a dos boot disk and manually delete the associated files... there are many!!

                            Re : removal of Norton Antivirus

                            That's right you must convert your FAT32 Partition to NTFS, then run the add/remove uninstaller, if that doesn't do it then you're gonna have to hack it out of your system, Try to get a process viewer procview is good and use Microsoft Taskkill.exe to kill every process associated with Norton, delete the remaining files in the Norton folder, then you're gonna have to remove dead entries in your registry, I suggest CClean and scan for issues, also get hold of RegClean from Microsoft, do all this after you backup your important data first.

                            There might be Programs that can do this for you or tutorials out there, just google it.
