I would like a list of all security Software products that do not conflict with Norton Security

I would love to see a list of security software products that do not conflict with Norton Security Software please

It has been proven that more scanners are more likely to protect than one. Norton Security recently failed to even detect myway.com

Who knows what other browser Hijackers it fails to detect or remove.

That is absolutely not true.  In fact, more software only leads to possible conflicts that can reduce your protection.  Any software can only do so much - none of it makes you bulletproof.  The real key to security is not how much software you use, but what you do yourself to block avenues of attack - software should be considered a backup, not a first line of defense.  For example, myway is a PUP that is bundled with other software that you might download and install. Simply reading the series of installation steps in any download will alert you to this type of bundling and allow you to opt out.  Another important step you can take is to control JavaScript in your browser to prevent untrusted sites from redirecting you to malicious downloads.

You should use a secondary on-demand scanner to periodically check for things that Norton does not specifically look for (such as PUPs which are legitimate, but possibly unwanted).  But you should never use two real-time security programs together.

I know - I don't but Norton fell down on the job on this browser hijack!

You call yourself a GURU so explain why did Norton do nothing on this one for like a year. This is why using multiple security products is the only way to go so long as it is just  a one time scan as opposed to continual scans currently

Malware Bytes service is off. Only comes on when I enable it which would be the next missed malware by Norton.

Why hasn't Norton /Symantec addressed the issue of browser hijacking with more effort???

If the "browser hijacker" is a PUP, then it offers some sort of feature, even if you may not consider that feature a "benefit."  You must also consent to the installation, even if the consent is nothing more than failing to uncheck a box permitting the installation.  Some people install these programs because they actually want them.  Norton blocks the most egregiously deceptive or bothersome PUPs, but permits others - you can actually find threads in these forums where users complain about Norton blocking these types of programs.  So, where PUPs are concerned, they are not technically malware, and Norton leaves it up to you to decide if you want them or not.  Malwarebytes is more aggressive against PUPs, a decision they made a few years ago which set them apart from most antivirus vendors.
