Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I was lucky enough at 3 am on Friday to have gotten the last HP Laptop WalMart had on special that day for $378! Not a bad machine at all really for that money. Anyhow I have been running Avast! Pro on my main machine under XP x64 and have been very happy with it so far but since this new laptop came with XP Home x32, I can pretty much run any AV I want so I thought I would ask here to see what everyone thought. The machine has an AMD Sempron 2800+ cpu and the Ram is 512mb so I don't think resources should be an issue. I was thinking about trying KAV but I know it is still in beta right now. The machine came with NIS 2005 and while I have grown to hate Norton over the years, this has a 2 month free trial so I am running it now and so far I am pretty impressed over previous Norton versions. It actually believe it or not does not seem like a hog at all, even with all the extra security components over just the AV version. The personal firewall is built in too and it still runs unnoticeably to me. Really strange to be able to say that about a Norton product but I thought I would ask the experts here to get some feedback if it is worth upgrading it to NIS 2006 or just wait for KAV 2006 to be final?
