I’m finally safe

Don’t worry, it’s not what you think. Since October 2007, I haven’t had any antivirus protection… *gasp* But how? I don’t know. I’ve been fortunate not to have anything happen to my computer (and it sort of feeds a certain conspiracy theory I have about antivirus programs, but we’ll see how this goes) since my old one expired in October. But today, I finally decided to shell out and get myself the Norton Internet Security 2008. And I’m already regretting not waiting till I could get my hands on a copy of Norton 360 2008.

The main differences that appeal to me are: the 360 helps you ‘find and fix problems that slow your computer’ and ‘remove unwated internet clutter and temporary files’. Of course, these are things that I could do on my own but it’d be nice to get a program that does it for you. And since the 360 is only about CAD$20 more than Norton Internet Security 2008, I would easily shell out for it. Oh well, though I’ve opened the box so I can’t return it now.

I’m just curious what everyone else uses, if anyone else uses this program and what feedback you may have… share with me!

  1. Omar, now you’ve just made me wish that I had posted about getting Norton before I actually went out and bought it! lol Then again, I won’t exactly have been able to buy a mac right away so I still need to protect my PC in the meantime.

  2. I don’t like Norton products as they are resource hogs themselves. I’m speaking from experience. Kaspersky is much lighter and more efficient.
