Ok guys. I am about sick of Norton and their subscription process. I had purchased Norton Systemworks 2005 as soon as it came out. Now since then I have formatted and reinstalled everything on my computer. During that process, I had to reinstall Systemworks. It gave me a new date for which my 1yr subscription would run out (exactly 1 year from when I activated it at that point in time). Now, some six months later, I am having trouble getting live updates... Symantec has been no help what so ever... I am just getting sick of the whole run around and want a freeware alternative. I really don't use many of the bells and whistles of Systemworks anyway. I just need something that will scan e-mails, update itself and run scheduled scans.
Alternatives that I have found and that have gotten great reviews all around are:
and Avast! v4.5
Please let me know what you guys think. Also, let me know what antivirus prog you are using and how you like it.
***EDIT*** I meant to say Systemworks 2005, not 2004. Editted above.
