Norton is a very resource hungry program. I recommend ESET NOD32 or Malware Bytes. I own a computer services and Cyber security consultation company. Both of those are great, Norton stores lots of information for personal use and is basically phishing software that blocks other phishing programs. ha.

No, it isn't resource intensive unless you are using a machine from XP times. I have Norton installed on multiple computers and it uses 10mb of memory at most and scans never use more than 1-2% of processor utilization. Norton was garbage once before, but now it is a very good security suite.
Now, if you disagree, prove to me that Norton is resource intensive on any machine from 2008+. Norton does store basic information, and just as much as every other company.
MalwareBytes is a good supplement, not a primary defense.
Norton or Bitdefender + MalwareBytes are great choices.

You don't have to. Various metadata, and web cache info/ browsing habits. I am not asking you to take my word for it, if you like it, go with it. I mean the more people that use services like that, the more business my company gets. I could not care less, in all honesty. I was sharing a piece of information, not volunteering to defend it's validity to the end of time, and spend time explaining to someone daft enough to use McAfee why McAfee is bad. If you like McAfee, and defend it, chances are you are far out of my attention span to spend time catering simple definitions to.But just Google, Google is your friend. Google=good.

Not to debate a "Pro" here, but I actually worked electronic retail for quite some time, and were required to be informed of Anti Virus changes and updates with the time. Norton maybe 5-10 years ago used to be an extremely heavy program, but they realized this and have corrected it. Many people still believe this old stigma despite them being among the fastest antiviruses (Winning multiple awards in the past 3 years).
This source shows Norton ranked #5 out of 25 AV programs based on computer RAM usage, and out of any AV programs above it the only other that offers comparable protection would be #2 Webroot.
I hope this has been informative for you, because I would hate for you as a professional to continue propagating misinformation.
#106 - xbyronx (12/16/2014) [-]
That isn't propagating misinformation, #5 isn't good, it is still a very demanding program. Run that on a Pi or micro board and see it work. It won't. It is very resource hungry. Not to debate with a retail employee, but just because it wasn't the worst does not make it good m8.
#150 - rawrpalooza (12/16/2014) [-]
I meant your misinformation about it being "resource heavy", it is old and currently inaccurate information compared to many other antiviruses. The rating 5th out of 25 was based purely on its resource use with no other factors included. We are talking less than 100 MB in idle mode here and just over 160 working. In the applicable retail markets with computers sold today, that is an insignificant fraction of working memory. I'm just saying, unless your definition of resource heavy is far different from mine, the majority of modern users will not notice a slower performance based on those numbers.
#176 - xbyronx (12/17/2014) [-]
Well, you did read it on the internet. On a blog. Who am I to argue with that, I mean, it's on the internet. It has to be accurate. Also, resource heavy is relative. If I use 100 mb to do nothing but dick around, then that is shit. AVG in relative to what it does, is resource heavy. But your a retail employee, and probably have worked security engineering jobs for major fortune 500 companies. Well, no, that was me, but you seemed so all knowing I almost confused us.
#182 - rawrpalooza (12/17/2014) [-]
Easy there slugger, I'm not trying to say that I am more qualified than you. I am merely saying that working in the retail industry requires a modern, and constant update of the knowledge available to the market. As I stated previously, Norton has also won numerous awards in past recent years (2011 most noticeably) for best Antivirus. CNET, PC magazine, and Hardware Geeks among those to give it awards.
The blog was merely to cite your claim to it being resource heavy, in justification to it being garbage. I really have no dogs in this fight, and my customers are free to choose what they wish, but I will make sure that all information is available to them, regardless. This is why I often become upset, when people believe just because an AV program had a certain stigma attached well over 5 years ago, that it must still be that way today. Trust me that the industry, and the companies evolve, and there will never be a sure fire antivirus to pick year after year.
For myself, I used Trend Micro last year, and currently use Webroot, because its new software blows almost all competition out of the water (however this may not be the case next year, if you see the continual point I'm trying to make).
Just take my advice, do some quick research about Best current AV's rather than just what you learned when you started into your career. I am sure you are great at your job, and as such must know that technology changes as quickly as it comes out.
#187 - xbyronx (12/17/2014) [-]
Doing research is literally my job, it's what I get paid to do. I am a consultant. I research, then I present my findings. AVG, regardless of the awards it bought its self, is simply not a great antivirus. Game journalism isn't the only journalism that is popular as of late for poor standards in ethics. I didn't mean to be rude, I guess I got defensive. I am sorry, it really doesn't take a degree to do my job, I just got one anyways. You seem well educated on the topic, and perhaps I was a little more bias then I should have been. But AVG is a decent anti virus, if you pay for it, but we were discussing the best free ones, which AVG is not.

In all honesty, it USED to be a horrible program. It took up so much CPU that your computer would run really slowly so that Norton could run properly.
I personally dont like it because it's a bit invasive. I like it when programs close upon clicking "X" for the first time, and only open when you tell them to open. Norton doesnt do either of those things.
