Hi,
do you know , which is the best antivirus software? I think, it very difficult to tell which is the best. There are different methods to determine the quality. norton antivirus is good, but it slows down the computer.

The problem with Norton is that it tries to do everything, and as a consequence is very slow. I prefer using programs that do one thing at a time, and do it well.
For an A/V, try one of the free programs, that are available, Avast, AVG. You also need a firewall, and this can also be a free one. Sunbelt Kerio is free for home users, and very effective.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
