Norton AV real-time protection
Posted 13 June 2007 - 02:55 AM
Because of this I'm actually thinking of switching to Norton for my AV needs. I however can't be certain if Norton AV has real-time protection which I know AVG has coz its saved me a few times already.
Can somebody comment on whether Norton has real-time protection and also when comparing the latest versions of the two, which would be better, AVG or Norton.

Yes, Norton AntiVirus does have real-time protection. However, it does have a tendancy to slow systems down, although if you have a fast enough system you may not notice it.
