    Very nice, looks very cool but im going to stick with kaspersky as on the back it says it has the best protection even if norton is faster by a few seconds.

    The GUI is horrible but what do you actually think of it if you use it?

    I used Norton (Mainly the cooperate edition) for many years before switching to Sophos.

    Just wondering if you still use this?

    I used Norton many years ago but would never dream of running it anymore, it’s not until you remove it you realise how much it slowed your system down.

    I figured you'd remove it as it would never find a virus in its lifetime not because it would slow your PC down. Norton = death of all PC's
