The Best Out There; I've Put It On a Dozen computers

I have sort of evolved into the computer techie for my extended family and therefore am responsible for the digital health of about a dozen computers and a couple dozen people. That is quite a responsibility. Since many computers come equipped with McAfee and various other antivirus programs. Some did not heed my advice and they went and downloaded the freeware antivirus utilities. This may be coincidence, but without fail every single one of those individuals (about 5 or 6 computers in all) ended up being knocked out of commission by viruses. On the computers that have had Norton on them, since 1999, I have not had one instance of a virus.

I know that this experience isn't everybody's, and I know that no program can stop all viruses all the time, but so far Norton has a perfect record for me, so I will keep using it. Now that they have developed the Bloodhound feature to protect against new and unknown viruses, I'm assuming that it will be even better.

My one warning is that right out of the box, Live Update is not activated. I don't know why this is as many of my family who have installed it themselves do not manually activate it (since they didn't know they had to) and therefore operate with really old virus definitions until I go into the settings and turn LiveUpdate on.

I have not hesitate to recommended Norton for every computer that my extended family has purchased. The never-ending rebates which often reduce the price of the software to almost nothing are great too. My recommendation is obvious: Norton is the best out there.
