Norton Stinks

I'm running 98SE on an AMD 1800mhz system with 512mb ram. At first it runs fine, but sooner or later it bogs down the system and runs very slow. THat is if you dont get the dreaded Blue screen of death first. i used to blame the problems on other applications or spyware but after almost a year of problems and worse yet a few viruses went undetected, I decided to leave the only valuable application "GO-Back" on the PC and delete the rest. I installed Panda Titanium. WOW! what a difference! My system speeed is back, and Panda found 15 viruses imbedded in files that norton never found. Not to mention the speed of outlook has doubled and all my other app's have improved. And no more BLUE SCREENS!!! I have 2 other pc's that I have removed Norton from and installed AVG antivirus. Same results; system speed improved and viruses found that norton missed. My conclusion: NORTON STINKS!!!!
