My DH is a computer "geek" and I have to tell you he can't stand Norton. When we were dating I had a good friend help me at times with my computer and he liked Norton. Then when my husband would be over he attributed all problems with Norton so he instead used McAffee. The friend attributed all my computer problems to McAffee and said to stick with the Norton. I yi yi, what a mess. Since the wedding we now use my husband computer and mine is sitting in the corner colecting dust. It makes a great paper weight though!
