What should I chose AVG or Norton? I currently have windows 7 64 bit. We purchased AVG internet security for two years on three PC's just last August. I recently discovered my ISP (Comcast) offers Norton Security suite for free which has a few extras that may be nice to have that I don't with my AVG service. In the past (10 years or so ago) I once had Norton, I had problems with it and needed to uninstall it. But Norton embed itself into my OS and made it just about impossible to uninstall it. Is Norton still like that? According to the last virus scanner results Norton out-shinned every other virus scanner. And I had recent problems with a virus getting past AVG.

So in your expert (and not so expert) opinions should I go with Norton or just stay with AVG?

Well, I use the free version of Avast, so I don't have first hand experience. I've read good reviews of Norton, saying it's much better now and so on, however I will refer you to this:Norton Internet Security 10-Kick Ass??? WTF?????

Interesting. Similar to problems I had ages ago. Maybe I will just stick with AVG for now. Thanks!
