I have a subscription with Norton 360. However, sometimes, possibly twice a week when I turn my laptop on I get the red shield saying, "Antivirus is switched off, your computer is at risk". All Norton seem to say is 'remove and re-install..which does work but it's a 20 minute affair.
Here is a screen shot I what I am shown:
I have been told that not only does Norton use huge memory space, it is also needlessly expensive for the service you get. Also, I am led to believe that there are some excellent others out there like, Microsoft Security Essentials and A.V.G. which are free and offer great basic protection.
Please advise as I would be hugely appreciative.
