I used to use Norton a long time ago. Unfortunately my opinion on Norton is fairly low at this point. I find Norton to be fairly bloated, and to be a huge resource hog. I tried out some other norton products about 18 months ago and ended up chucking them all in favor of other products because in every case they were just sucking up memory and cpu. That is kind of a pet peeve of mine. Background applications really have to use a minimum amount of cpu and memory, or I simply can not tolerate running them.

Probably comes from my game playing. Whenever I am trying to tweak my machine for maximum performance, anything that has to be turned off because it slows me down is a hinderance. Norton always seems to fall under that category for me.

No offense, of course!
