Installation Instructions:

1. open the nearest window
2. fling the Norton disc out the window as hard & as far as you can
3. download & install Microsoft Security Essentials
edit >> (or Avast! Free, or AVG Free, or one of the other freebies)

Haha!! Agreed riider!

But unfortunatly, the op has already purchased it. Also, in my opinion, anything is better than Microsoft Security Essentials(including several other free AVs), especially on Win7!

I think we've had this conversation before, but I don't think I've ever asked you what you see in MSE. Am I missing something?

In any case, riider, MSE is no substitute for Norton 360. Not at all.

Norton 360 is a firewall and antivirus package, whereas MSE is antivirus only.

Avast Free is 100% better than MSE....

Norton is pretty CRAPPY if zillions of people purchase it and don't have ANY idea of how to activate it....

I've never liked AVAST but there sure seems to be a lot of fans in these forums. I used to run AVG until it became bloatware. All my systems are currently running MSE plus Malwarebytes Pro (except one). MSE has always worked well for me until recently when I got the FBI virus, but I blame myself for that one for visiting a high risk site. I'm currently experimenting with Bitdefender Free on one system. Too early to say if I'm going to make the full switch or not but if I do, I'll be changing my recommendation.

Regardless, there's little reason for anyone to pay for AV protection when there are so many free options available & that's the point I was trying to make. I just edited step 3 im my other response, hopefully it pleases everyone ;-)

Thanks for getting back to me riider! I agree with you on your second point about not needing to pay for AV!

I definitely respect your opinions based on your experience with the different AV's out there as I've developed my own opinions based on similar experiences. But you can't argue with test results from a controlled environment (especially considering most people aren't power users and don't think before they click...)

I agree, Norton obviously need to make sure their instructions are clear enough. Maybe it is worse for newbies who have never used a computer and don't know how easy it is to find things in Google. I don't think this proves that the AV itself is bad tho.

Personally I always use freebies anyway but keeping up with independent reviews is more important than dogmatic opinion. I've found the pecking order often changes and any information or experience gained a few years back is old hat and irrelevant. Norton, for example, is not the big bad wolf it used to be and AVG was OK until it became bloated. MSE is good enough for me - it lacks bells and whistles but is not intrusive.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

"you can't argue with test results from a controlled environment"

Which is why I've decided to give Bitdefender a look:
