|As a Registered Partner of Symantec we would like to get a bit more background information for claims such as "Norton is crap" or "Avast is much better than Norton". |
While Avast is a fine antivirus solution, just know a lot of progress was made over the last two Norton Antivirus releases (2009 and 2010) to lower system resources consumption, among other things. That makes Norton Antivirus 2010 a perfectly viable choice for hardcore PC gamers.
The program is also a lot easier to set up and use, think of it as a "set-it-and-forget-it" type of antivirus solution.
In order to remove completely Norton (for all post-2003 products), please download the Norton Removal Tool from here:

You can download a free AVAST trial from here:
And if you wish, you can try Norton Antivirus and Norton 360 for free at the URL specified below. Norton Antivirus does not have firewall protection like Norton Internet Security Does; Norton 360 adds backup & restore as well as PC performance optimization features to Norton Internet Security:
