on one yhat won't slow things down and won't give me pop-ups all over
the place.

They changed their minds and extended it for 18 more months or something
like that.


Avast is good though. Free version just fine

- McAfee Antivirus
Just as good or better than Norton, but also a resource hog and slow
on WinXP. Has same problem with uninstalling or upgrading as Norton
(total removal tool from support needed).
I am using McAfee LiveSafe on my Windows 8.1 machines (2 in total with
8GB RAM) and 1 Windows 7 Machine (4GB RAM) and I find it very reliable
and not at all "resource hog" as suggested by the above quote.

The modern total protection suite includes many things that you don't
have to use but they are there just in case you need them:

HD defragmenter
HD cleaner
Anti-theft protection (if your machine gets stolen and the thief doesn't
bother to wipe the disk)
Install on any device you own that means 1 license for all your laptops
and desktops!!

etc etc
