Is norton really that bad? I have Norton 360 (that I got for free from a buddy). Should I get rid of it and just use AVG?

AVG is great. 8.0 hasn't given me any problems.

AVG is bogging both my laptop and my wifes laptop...im not really happy with it right now...

AVG 8.0 is not letting me print anything from IE 7. Must be a bug in one of the updates. Firefox is fine but even still I switched to Avast 4.8.

If you installed it with all of the defaults, it may be the Link Scanner is slowing down your browsing.

If it was on, and you disable it, AVG won't be happy about it, and you will see a red exclamation mark over the AVG system tray icon. You can always uninstall/reinstall with the custom option, which allows you to not install the Link Scanner options, and you avoid the unhappy AVG icon.

I just bout a new Dell with Vista.
Will Windows Defender for Firewall and AVG 8 or Avast! 4.8 be sufficient to cover all the threats out there or is there something else that I'm not thinking of?
What do I need to load onto my new desktop to keep it safe?

i use norton on my pcs and have never had a problem with it, but then again im constantly running cleanups and adware scans
id recomend getting ccleaner & adaware and running both those at least once a month, i run them once a week.
