Both AVG and nod32 are quite good against viruses, but being only antivirus, and not a complete security suite, are both weak against other malaware threats.

If you do not want to buy a complete security suite like Nornon internet security, or Macafee security sute you can buy either AVG or nod32. Install a firewall like Zonealarm or similar to integrate the antivirus protection. AVG takes less RAM than nod 32, otherwise performances are similar.

If you are really worried about additional threats, you can integrate a free antivirus with a firewall and a good antimalaware like Spybot-S&D. This may slow down the computer a bit.

How can i get product key for norton 2010


If you really want to protect your PC you will have to find a better security program than Norton. I have removed so many infections from friends and families computers who were using Norton Anti-virus, and I really do have to wonder if that program even works at all.

AVG is a far better program, and even the free edition of AVG will do a far better job of protecting your PC than Norton ever will, and the free edition of AVG will actually keep infections out of your PC unlike the paid version of Norton, and everyone that I have set up with AVG has really been satisfied with how it performs, and I use it myself because I have not found any program that does the job better.

You might also want to install an anti-mal-ware program as well, and mal-ware is different from viruses and other infections, and your anti-virus program will not detect mal-ware, and the best program that I have found for that is Malwarebytes, and even the free edition of that program will work very well and it will do what it claims to do, get rid of mal-ware on your PC and Malwarebytes does that job very well.

Here are the links if you would like to try them out, and they will certainly purge the infections and mal-ware from your PC, and they are free programs so you really have nothing to loose, but you will have a lot to gain in PC security. If it were my PC, or someones infected PC that I was working on, I would delete Norton from the PC and I would install the AVG and the Malwarebytes.

If installing these programs pay attention to the installation because you have the option not to install any toolbars into your browser that you do not want or need, like a google or yahoo toolbar, and if you do not want them or need them then just un-check the boxes when they come up on the installation screen and it is not difficult to do at all.

I keep getting a message saying my account and protection has expired


Hi,
It means that you have to renew your subscription to Norton anti virus.
Otherwise, if you don't want to pay, uninstall norton completely and then install AVG anti virus which has a free version.

I renewed my subscription (order no.1863817887) on Dec 26 but am still getting messages that my sub has run out and computer is unprotected.



If you purchased the NIS 05 and you did not pay a new subscription in 2006, then it is expired.
You would have to purchase a new subscription for 2009 for 2010. Not a renewal. I would find that out, since NIS05 is not working.

SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE TRY SOMETHING ELSE. If you find the information below helpful, pls rate me.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

Pls send me noryon anti virus gaming edition product key


Number one, That is illegal.
Number two, Norton is not any good.
Number three, AVG Free is free for personal use, uses less resources, and protects you better. Go to download.com and search for "AVG Free". Get the latest release, and be wary of advertisements. If you must have Norton, it is a subscription service, and you will have to pay for it.

Message says my subscription has expired? I purchased Internet Security from Nortons on 12/7/07 why has it expired? It appars I am no longer protected and do not understand why this is.


Most of the Norton antivirus comes with one year subscription. date u mentioned here seems like more then 1 year old. That's why it says expired
If you dont want to spend any more money on antivirus then uninstall this one and download AVG from this site. this is really good antivirus for free and good for ever.

Norton renewal subscription


the problem lies in the registry uninstall norton 360 then re-install this clears the reg then try your key again.

my personal View Don't use norton 360 as it will slow your system down use Kespersky Internet security this is the best one out and also use avg virus program when you switch to kaspesky internet security then remove avg which you can get a free version.
