my Norton was up for renewal but just been procrastinating. Had not gone unprotected yet. I would on Jan 1st. I was on a long drive service call Saturday and caught a show on AM radio about internet security. Kim Komando. Komando.com .
She was talking about free security software and how good they are versus the paid for ones like Macafee and Norton. SO. I indulged her and went to her site and downloaded her free recommended firewall, antivirus and spyware.
Man alive. These three all found things that Norton was not taking care of. I am glad I listened to her.
She was saying the paid for software is nothing superior and that the only real thing it truly can offer the average computer user is the fact that it's a convenience to have all the security in one neatly packaged place. If your savvy enough to have all three separate things doing there thing and can manage it like that, there is absolutely no need to pay for security software, IF your an average user. And if you were going to pay for it, your going to go get top of the line very expensive. The average paid for software is no better and often less secure than what is available for free.
