4uvak: It is not nessicary to start similar topics, As I already Explained with the firewalls, it slows preformence. So you definitly shouldn't have 2 AV programs.

But AVG is great, so just ditch your norton.

Stop subscription and uninstall it.

Well I guess we all Have opinions.

I have used Avast also, I don't like the user interface and thats the Single reason I don't reccomend it.

You can try both and see which one you like best.

Norton does a good enough job of slowing computers all by itself, I agree you should lose it.

I think it depends how they work. For example I have two, one AVG which is on-access, the other ClamWin isn't. They work fine together because they aren't both on-access, and because there not competing with each other.
