    Pretty low, especially with scan incoming only.

    Why did they include MSE which is an AV not IS, and ClamWin on-demand scanner? Why not Comodo, which is actually an IS?

    Well, given the title, it's supposed to be about AVs. There was no "suite" mentioned, so MSE is fair game. However, I highly question their inclusion of a few of these, especially, as the title states, it is a review of "Top programs".

    Why did they say this then:
    The best way to protect yourself is with a serious immunity booster, which is exactly what all-in-one security suites provide. Based on our prior antivirus roundups, it’s no longer a question of whether an all-encompassing antivirus package can provide adequate protection on all fronts, but which one does it best?

    About MSE resource usage, from the article:

    "just"? 10 seconds extra boot time is dreadful...

    Kind of a joke. MSE low on resources? What have they been smoking? Also ClamWin, ZoneAlarm, BullGuard and Webroot should've been replaced with Kaspersky, NOD32, Avira and avast!.

    Hell I don't know, J.L, they shouldn't have included Clam in there either then. I'm not sure why they included Clam regardless of whether it was an AV/suite review.

    I haven't read the article yet, but am wondering about the MSE comments I've read here recently.

    I, for one, find it very light on resources. Low memory, low disk activity, no noticeable impact on my system at all.

    So, what are you guys seeingo_O?

    I've subscribed to Maximum PC since years before they changed the name from boot in Sept 98.

    They should stick to their forte which is hardware and game reviews and commentary. They've repeatedly and consistently shown that security utility software are way beyond their expertise much like the car magazines that occasionally test a motorcycle.

    "ClamWin cowers under the blanket when you surf the web, leaving you susceptible to...anything...that requires a real-time scanner." Well... DUH!

    i mainly agree with you ..

    well norton focus to very most user friendly but once you drill down to settings , then newbie might be lost .

    To me its great but for newcomers , norton provides a whole range of functionalities for each aspect of product ...

    Infact I find many other suites settings ( such as Vipre ) much simplified and straight

    the reason norton is supposed to be simple because 99% , you wont need to touch settings part and rest it manges it all

    Couldn't agree more. They have hit the perfect blend.
