I was reading on the forum rules and see that advertising is not allowed.  That got me to wondering....is it ok to post a message asking for advice on what Norton product to buy?  I already did, but would like to pursue it further, but I don't want to break any rules!!

Asking about a product and Advertizing are totally different .. Wink

Inquiring about Software or Applications is ok .. Grin

Ask away Gere .. Smiley

Thanks Cactus.  I think I touched on this before and received a reply that AVG was the way to go since it's free, and that does make sense.  But if I decide to go with Norton, I wish somebody who is familiar with the following 2 products, would steer me in the right direction, as to which one is better:  Norton Systemworks 2005 or Norton Internet Security 2005 (it includes a firewall).  I do have Norton Systemworks 2003 presently and Norton firewall 2003, but have been told that it causes computers to run slower, (mine indeed does), and that Norton Internet Security would be a wiser choice, or even Norton Anti-Virus.  I find it difficult to compare them all and wonder if anybody has some ideas regarding the way to go.

Thanks.

Well I use Norton Anti-Virus 2003 and have never had a problem with it.
I don't use System Works or Norton Internet Security as I use a Router with a built-in Firewall.

I do however know alot of people who installed Norton's Personal Firewall 2003 on their computers with no problems.
