    Just like to know what others think about KAV and NAV I think KAV detects more viruses,worms,trojans,mailware etc... for the price I would say NAV,because you can buy NAV for around $10-$15 on online stores :)

    I'd rather pay the extra money and buy KAV. I like the peace of mind that KAV gives. Not that KAV is perfect, though. And NAV is a good product.

    When NAV goes wrong, which can happen, you then end up getting on the phone to speak to support and/or uninstalling it and buying something else; in either case it will cost you a lot more than the amount you saved buying it for discount!

    I agree, for the price of NAV Phone Support ($29.95 upto $69.95 per incident), you can buy almost any other security software.

    Their support should be free of charge, because Symantec also learns from user problems in order to improve their softwares.
    Besides that, most problems should be solved by un-installing and re-installing the software and I wouldn't like to pay $29.95 for that advice.
