    I am not sure if you are looking for just an anti-virus, but if you are those 2 are not what you want to be looking at.

    the av's you would want to look at would be Kaspersky, Nod32, Avira.

    You will also probably be better off looking at the linl below to make your own choice.


    http://www.av-comparatives.org/

    pc-cillin will not be rated there (in recent tests,older tests are still there if you do some checking on past tests) but from other discussions in these forums there have not been any improvements in their av solutions.

    To answer your question between the 2 of the av's you picked i would go with norton

    I used NOD32 and really was bad alternative for me, never come back with Nod, I think that AVIRA would be good, Kaspersky is heavy

    Well, since I thought we were suppose to stay on topic in threads, geez, I would agree with that litlle green man, that Norton would be the better choice. Their detection rankings are of the highest, and they have continued to make their product better. Where is that little green Yoda?

    Hows that. And Norton is making a great product. It is in the top tier of security products. Trend would be in the middle.

    I have never used Trend Pc-cillin, but I have used various versions of NAV over the years and never had any problems, so in this case, I would recommend NAV from personal experience. The last version of NAV I used was 2003.

    Definitely norton av, it always ranks high in tests, the 2007 version has improved a lot and seems quite light imo. Plus it has inbuilt spyware detection so its a good choice for the average user.

    Totally agree. I find they have improved a LOT this time with the 2007 version. Espeacially with the resource usage.

    Yes, when i installed it and checked the resource usage i was shocked, its an amazing improvement. I guess they've been taking all the complaints about resource use seriously. I'm actually considering getting a license for my new computer which i would never would have considered based on the last few versions.

    Until this morning I would have said I would suggest the Norton package as it truly did run good for me and I was happy with the performance. I think the package is much improved over previous versions and overall very good but I have recently discovered they are a bit unethical in their licensing of the product and now have a 400+ remaining subscription they are telling me I can no longer use because I reloaded it to many times. Anyhow while the package is good you may want to see what they ae doing trying to get customers to pay multiple times for the same license. Check out my thread here on this before you decide. https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=148743

    Symantec has to generalize a license agreement to try and cover everyone. Not to many people would ever have the problem of exceding the number of times they can reinstall their antivirus. It is unfortunate that you got caught up in it but you did agree to their EULA when you installed their product.

    I did not agree to a stated number of times and as I said would never have purchased it had it said a set number of time anywhere. Also they mention the intent was to stop piracy which in my case there never was any pirate activity so that statement does not legitimately concern me. Anyhow, please note that I am not trying to bash Symantec and just pointing out to unsuspecting people what is happening to me.

    I totally agree with you. I am just pointing out that when you do agree to a EULA with out reading it or understanding it you are still legally bound to it's stipulations. And the wording they use is a bit deceptive but the way they state it they do have the right to limit the times it can be reinstalled and the right at their descretion after that amount of time to prohibit use of the program. They depend on the lack of legal understanding by the average person to slide these kinds of things past us. It is a very bad practice and can possible hurt them in sales once enough people realize what the EULA is actually saying

    Norton VS PC-Cillin?... Norton IMO, although KIS6 is better than both IMO.

    I did email them and they told me to buy more licenses and sent me a link to their store. see the link to my thread above and there is a copy of their response letter.

    Just because they think I intalled it too many times that there may be some piracy but it is never on two of my computers at the same time.

    I am awaiting their next response after I demanded they show me where I have done anything to justify their nullification of my license.
