Should I use Webroot AntiVirus or Norton?

by on April 18, 2009

Q: I have both Webroot AntiVirus and Norton installed on my computer. Norton expired and I tried to renew, but it told me that I would have to uninstall Webroot. Webroot is also about to expire. Which antivirus program should I keep? In other word, is one better than the other?

    First off, since anti-virus programs stay running all the time checking your files for viruses, you only want one installed and running at a time. Otherwise you’ll really drag the performance of your computer down.

    As far as Webroot vs Norton, I’d say get rid of both of them and save your money! Try out these three free antivirus programs and see which one you like the most:
