Norton 360 vs Avast

by docyak1234 / November 6, 2012 11:10 PM PST

My McAfeee subscription just ran out. I prefer a good all in one program like norton 360, but would be willing to install multiple programs if that would give me better protection. Any advise?

avast! instead of Norton 360

I've been using the free version of avast! for the past 10 years. Malwarebytes is a nice companion program and, use the windows firewall.
If you wanted just one program than I suggest the avast! Internet Suite.
