"Norton Is a System-Hogging Mess"
There are no Pros.
In the CNET review, it states: "Norton's System Insight component ...warns you when your programs unnecessarily hog system resources." I laughed! Oh, the irony! Norton AntiVirus was the biggest system hog on my computer. Kept my CPU running hot at 99-100% continually.(Unfortunately, it failed to warn me about THAT.) It frequently brought my computer to its knees. Not to mention all the other weird stuff that happened routinely. I spoke to Norton help many times. Hours wasted. No one could ever figure it out. Right. Then they tried to charge me $65 an hour to fix the "problem." I told them to refund my money (suddenly, they gave me the added "support" for free.) Which turned out to be worthless anyway. I finally woke up, smelled the bacon--I mean, the burning CPU, and uninstalled the NAV mess. I downloaded AVG. Presto! Guess what? My computer runs like new. Ahhhhhhh. Life is good.
Norton AVG 2012 is a resource hog. It will mess with your computer. If your computer is haunted and you can't figure out why, give Norton the boot. You'll wonder why you waited so long. Your "ailing, failing" machine will suddenly run like new. Like I said: Ahhhh, life's good!
