I have a new job online. Basically, I have to browse A LOT of websites and I've already picked up a virus or 2-- So I want virus protection that will tell me if the page I'm going to is fishy (rather than just trying to fix the problem post-infection). I've purchased Norton but I'm not sold on it. It seems my internet runs a lot slower.

Bleeping computer always has such knowledgeable posters, I figured this is the best place to ask! (You are my computer's heroes. :)

Should I just keep Norton or is there a better product out there? And I'm currently running Norton and Windows Security-- should I get rid of the Windows security feature now that I have Norton?

Thanks in advance!

<<And I'm currently running Norton and Windows Security>>

No such AV...do you mean Microsoft Security Essentials?

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic472962.html/page__p__2877793#entry2877793 reflects a current open topic in the Am I Infected forum. You should tend to that before opening any other topics or requesting information that may be discussed or where questions may be resolved in your existing AII topic.

You need to bring it to the attention of your helper in AII...that you have two AV programs installed.

If you still have questions after your AII topic is closed/resolved, BC has a forum where you can gain knowledge re protection methods for your system: AV, Firewall, Privacy Product, & Protection Methods.

To avoid confusion, this topic is closed. If you have any questions about such, please contact me via PM.
