Norton (Symantec) is as good as any other well known anti-virus program. Whoever said it was bad and can turn into a virus provided you with incorrect information.

However, if you are looking for an alternative...see Choosing an Anti-Virus Program

Free Anti-virus programs: (choose and install only one)

Other Free Alternatives:

If you are using Windows 8/10, there is always the option to just use  Windows Defender for its anti-virus and anti-malware protection? Although it uses the same name, it is not the same as Defender in previous operating systems. Windows Defender 8/10 provides the same level of protection against malware as Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) provides on older operation systems and uses the same daily virus definition updates.

I have seen no-one advise people to quit anti-virus before upgrading to Windows 10. I made three attempts to upgrade which failed, then quit my Emsisoft free trial anti-virus program, after which I found the upgrade went perfectly!

I was impressed enough to think it might be worth paying for if it was robust enough to prevent an upgrade by Microsoft! An added advantage was my 30-day trial started again at 30 days!

Emsisoft isn't free after those 30 days - you have to pay to continue getting real time protection. :)

I'm sorry if you thought I was offering advice on a free product. I was extolling the virtue of a product that was robust enough to rebuff the advances of an operating system upgrade. With me seeing no-one else talking about switching off their anti-virus, I thought it wasn't a problem, and maybe it isn't with other progs.

 

Just wanted to share the thought of it being so robust it might actually be worth paying for (normally anathma to me, too!)

This topic wasn't about upgrading to Windows 10 so that is why comments were limited to those noted above in order to address the specific question. We do appreciate you sharing your experiences and be aware your comments in regards to EAM being impressive are shared by both Alex, myself and many other members here. In fact, see my comments in Supplementing your Anti-Virus Program with Anti-Malware Tools as to why I recommend Emsisoft Anti-Malware.
