    Hi all

    ive been using Norton system works 2003 and norton firewall 2003 for awhile now, but after seeing screenshots of Mcafee virus scan n personal firewall plus 2005 i am tempted to use that instead. is Mcafee better than norton 2003 products?

    please help

    ROFL.

    AVG is a good solution.

    Norton Corporate is slim, gentle on the CPU cycles.
    Macafee has cleaned up their act, but they still trail Norton and AVG.

    It is very nice .... yerright mafia. Symantec still has the fastest response to new threats.

    and corporate kicks the c*&p out of the free AVG

    Between the two, I'd personally stick with Norton.
    Gotta thank university for the Symantec Corp license though. :D
