During several of the few glances I give the Norton window as it scans, I notice some files that are obviously spyware, viruses and the like that Norton completely ignores.
I Googled some names to confirm my suspicions and I found that I was right. Many files, like StopingSpy, SpyFalcon, SpyDawn etc, are all programs that Norton doesn't do anything about. I tried scanning with Ad Aware and Spybot S&D, and still nothing happened.
I think a keylogger even came up at one point. I just wasn't able to catch the name.
So... Uh. Yeah. What my question basically is is whether Norton is worth it or not. Same goes for the other products, even if I'm not paying for them. And if it turns out that there are better programs for defending my computer, what are they?
