Thanks for the heads up.

I've just started getting the little Windows icon in my tray for my free Windows 10 upgrade reservation. I'm going to wait to the last minute to see what kind of problems come with it - but I'm sure I'll go for it.

The only second party anti virus programs I have had were both McAfee, and they caused lots of problems. Windows Defender came with my new 8.1 desktop and I've been very happy with that.

Norton sucks. It is a resource hog and doesn't even do the greatest job at virus protection. My advice? Take the FREE upgrade to Win10 and find an antivirus that is actually decent. McAfee is on the same level as Norton btw. Check here for better results.

Want a reason to believe me? A.A.*. in Network Security and A+/Sec+ Certified. Can provide proof upon request.
