Default Norton Corprate Edition Or AVG

I use the frree version of AVG 7.5 on my notebook but i got a free copy of NAV Corprate Edition latest version.

What will do a better job with viresus and resources?

I hear people like AVG cuz its free but i heard IT likes NAV Corprate alot too.

It all depends on what you like to do with your AV program I guess. My cousin had Norton Corpo on his machine since they were forced through his school. (Dorm pc) The problem is that depending upon how it is set up, you can't do a single thing with it. I assume you installing it, so you should at least be able to set what you want for options, so it probably won't be as bad.

I'm really indifferent, I'd suggest you try em both and see which one you like better. Norton will probably catch more things IMO, but it might use more resources, or be more of a nusance with other programs.

Actually Kaspersky Anti-Virus, and NOD32 are both superior solutions.

Kaspersky > NOD32 > Norton Corporate > AVG > AVG Free Edition > Consumer Crap in Stores

pff. I am not really a fan of kaspersky.. It may do good scanning but it's slow. It slows down your PC considerably. Although it doesn't dethrone Norton Internet Security 2006 in worse performance.

I am currently running CA Inoculate 7.. Small/lightweight and nearly no impact (if at all) on performance. And a lifetime (as it looks like) amount of definition updates and not overpriced.

Well considering the free version of AVG will be discontinued after the end of this year, either go with Norton or switch to ClamWin.

Slows down your PC considerably? You are the only one that has mentioned that. I've been running it 24/7 and my PC's never felt slow.

Give Bitdefender a try, the best virus scanner out there imo.

I don't care for AVG anymore cuz its very bad with resources. IT makes my system boot up real slow and eats up memory. I used NAV corprate but it blue screens on me when windows starts up.
