I must agree. I don't like they way Norton takes over your whole pc. The neverending scanning is the worst which bogs everything down for hours. I use a free antivirus called Avast. Works like a charm. I have not picked up a virus in many years and have been browsing some risky sites. It quietly does its work without you even knowing it is there.
PC Tools was made by Norton before it was taken over by Symantec.it's amazing how from NAV turned from being one of the lauded products to the shambles in reputation it is today. i guess the same could be said of McAfee as well.
edit - speaking of which, what was the company that used to make PC Tools?
