With all due respect to anyweb; I do not like Norton. Many people including I do not like it for it super-ram-hogging; which slows down the PC a lot.
A computer expert told me; Norton works like this: it has a database with all the viruses that it will find during a scan. It also has a engine, the scanning part. Some viruses have been able to located and delete this database, because the scanner find viruses that are written in the database, now, if a virus clears the database, the scanner is essentially finding nothing.

I have read a recent article suggesting Kaspersky is the best AV software this year with something like 97% viruses found including spyware, rootkit etc.

nowadays I use Microsoft Security Essentials, its quiet, does it job and works very well, I uninstalled AVG as it just got extremely annoying with its' never ending popups which were as annoying as virus's themselves
