Right just got mesself a new Samsung lappy, 500gig hard drive, 6 gig ram. Looks nice and it is running Windows 8 and has a free 60 day trial of Norton. Now I have scanned the pages here are using the elusive SEARCH feature for anti virus recamendations and most of the recamendations are quite dated now. So, I ask the IT literate amoungst you is Norton still as shiters as it was a few years ago or is it now a good system that doesnt hog the cpu? Or shall I mag to grid it and use the built in Windows Defender or shall I chin that off and go for something like avast??? Your recamendations please!!! Eye Fang Ewe!
