I have a fresh install of win7 on a new HDD and I was prepping to log into my Norton account and download a fresh install of latest Norton 360.
However right now windows defender is on for this desktop. My laptop and vista machines have to have defender off to run Norton.
This brand new win 7 has a warning that there is no virus program installed. So, wondering if there is some antivirus software that is actually compatible with windows defender and firewall. I like the idea of a couple different programs looking over my shoulder.
I have in 15 years only had one issue with a virus on a Norton covered machines all that time and it was the type that Norton on machine couldn't remove. Norton got on line and repaired my machine which I thought was pretty good. It probably took an hour or more, and would have cost me quite a bit at the local computer store to get fixed. BUT, I have always felt Norton was a bit of a resource hog and I also feel that it has slowed my boot up times over time with different updates.
So, was thinking of not installing the Norton. Other options that will let me keep windows defender running?
