Hi Katrina.

I have always used Norton and to be honest would never change it. So I totally agree with you.

Cheers.

Hi Chris and other NOD 32 Fans,

I believe NOD 32 is successfully installed on my computer. I unchecked the option for graphics. I changed a couple of other options (e.g. not showing
the splash screen at start up), but otherwise pretty much stayed with the
default options. I've tried to read through the help information, but find
I just don't understand much about how this program works.  How do I know
that the program is working properly? I haven't been able to determine that
my computer has been scanned for viruses.  I assume it automatically does
this right? Shouldn't the program notify me that the system was scanned or
something like that?  There is an option about entering an E-mail address
and password, but I didn't do that as I'm not sure why it is necessary. can
you tell me about how the program works and/or how I can ensure that I am
protected? Norton may have its drawbacks, but at least I understand how it
works.  (smile)

Thanks Chris. I definitely will try NOD 32. You sure make it sound great.

Hi Katrina

As I've said lots of times already, but maybe you didn't see them, you
absolutely can not go wrong  with NOD 32 from:

http://www.nod32.com
Norton puts itself in a lot of places on your computer, but a standard
uninstall of the program should remove most traces of it, enough that it'd
be safe to install another antivirus program. It's never a good idea to have
2 antivirus programs installed on the same machine, at least that's always
been my experience.  As I told others the advantage of NOD 32 is the fact
that it doesn't get in your way, it doesn't slow down your computer while
scanning for viruses, it updates itself in the background and if something
does happen, it presents you a simple window that lets you decide which
action to take.  When you install NOD 32 however, do a custom install, and
make sure that the custom graphical interface is not turned on.  You can
always turn it off after you install the program, but if it may present some issues with JAWS if you keep it on. Others on the list are using it too so
if you need help in disabling the graphics, just ask.  After using Nod 32
I'll never use anything else. I swear by it.
It does cost a little bit of money, but for the protection it offers, it's
an invaluable solution. plus it's accessible with JAWS, and it just plane
works.

My edition of Norton is about to expire.  I'm considering AVG or maybe
another anti-virus program.  Is there anything special I need to do
before installing and/or trying out a different anti-virus program.  Do
I need a special tool to remove all traces of Norton?  Actually, can I
install the new program before uninstalling Norton?  I would deactivate
Norton, but I'm wondering if it would be easier to keep Norton on my
system in the event that I don't like the new program and choose to
return to Norton.
