That is indeed what I almost always recommend to victims^Wusers^Wvictims
of Norton's bugware, and I can't praise it highly enough. Small, simple,
unintrusive and effective.
Oh, and just to be absolutely clear: it's not just "Not-on" AV, it's
absolutely *everything* Norton: their internet security package, their
anti-spam stuff, their pc-health-monitoring stuff: the entire suite should
be despised with deep prejudice.
I regularly get thanked by ex-Norton-sufferers, whose machines I have
removed it from and given them something decent like the AVG+ZA combination,
and they say things like "Wow, my machine only takes a fraction of the time
to startup it used to and everything it does is so much faster and smoother
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
