Jimbo they ticked me off years ago and believe me it uninstalls a lot faster than it installs.
When I removed it from this computer 5 years ago and installed Grisoft AVG Free my PC was noticably faster.
Norton is a resource hog!
Notice how Norton updates all come out on wednesday and take a long time to download and install?
Ever wonder what happens when a new virus that spreads like wild fire comes out on thursday?
With AVG free I get several updates a week as new threats emerge and havent had any virus problems. Several have been caught and removed or, quarantined...
In 2005 I had the computer in the shop to have a repair (laptop keyboard) and they give it back to me trying to me trying to charge $50 higher than quoted cause they put Norton anti-virus on for me... Needless to say I paid the quoted price and they ate the Norton install. I used it for 1/2 a year seeing as i got such a great deal before I couldn't stand it any more. I uninstalled it and again put on Grisoft Free AVG. Once again my computer got faster.
Here is the link to Download.com to get AVG Free.
Go for it Jimbo! It's got the Redwood seal of approval!
