Re: Any Former users of other Internet Security Programs

I have used in the past

Eset Smart Security

Trend Micro IS

McAfee

ZoneAlarm IS

Eeye Personal SS

Kaspersky IS 2009

All of them are much more resource intensity than Norton.  All of them have a different approach to system protection so this really a individual decision.  I find that Norton has really focused on speed and lightness on the system so that you can get the most out of your system when you need it.  Most of the intensive processes have been moved to Idle Time processing so that the system is responsive for the user and still given the best protection.

I would suggest that you read some of the discussions here on the features Insight (here) and Safe Web (here) .

I use Norton Internet Security at home on my personal computer by preference.  I am stuck with Trend Micro at work, and have used McAfee in the past.  I've been a happy Norton user for ten years.

Interesting topic.

I tried and tested the following

McAfee

TrendMicro Suite

CIS

DrWeb

OneCare

Avira

AVG

ESET

ZoneAlarm

F-Secure

And still I'm stuck on Norton. ;)
