ditch norton. people are now using norton to scan your computer, while you will think that norton is doing it.

get avasti or AVG

People are going into norton and replacing a few files. then when it say it is scanning your computer, they are the one scanning it, not norton

What kind of files are they replacing? Are they doing it on purpose? I never heard of this.
