I got Norton Internet Security 2005 a month ago (some shop, cheap) and i installed it.. The good news is that ive not had any major issues regarding viruses and malware... However, it hods system resources like a freak!

I cant watch play of do anything. Every minute or so the computer freeses for two seconds and then resumes, throwing everything off track..

I need a substitute... my version of Norton Systemworks (2005) lasted a year with no hiccups but now i am tired of Norton, perhaps another antivirus is needed.

I came to my conclusion after using google to a very large extent, as well as deductive reasoning (nothing else was installed).

As i game alot, i am extremely pissed and would love a repacement.. nothing fancy, just Antivirus and a few extras, like systemworks had, I also use Adaware SE so i dont really need a pro with help for that...

Thanx and it doesent matter if it aint free, ill buy it!!!!

cheers.
