Do I need both webroot spysweeper and Norton Internet Security?

by on August 10, 2009

Q: I have webroot spysweeper 6.1.0.128 and my subscription to Norton Internet security is about to expire. Do I need both? I am getting all these “world is coming to an end” messages from Norton. Also there are 2 products: NIS 2009 and Norton Antivirus 2009 – what is the difference and do I need either one?

    I think that you don’t need them both! Actually I think that having them both causes you problems! Look I used Norton for a wile at it caused me a lot of trouble! Now I’m using BitDefender for my security issues and I recommend it! It’s better!

    the main difference between antivirus and Internet security is that the latter has some extra modules; if Norton is about to expire I recommend that you read some reviews and then pick a security solution. I’m using BitDefender Internet security now, after using Norton for awhile; I like it better because it has a Gamer mode, and the thing that made me get it was this review: http://www.pcworld.com/reviews/product/44053/review/internet_security_2009.html
