    Like I said I don't use any Norton Products. Had a bad experience in past and I don't want to. The alternatives are more than enough for me.

    Okay, thought you dint use them because of the size of the updates and tendency to slow down system start-up..

    You see, I have used a hell lot of security softwares and finally got my comfort zone. I won't change it unless I really need to or some miraculous feature is available on some other software free.

    Currently Avira AV+Comodo Firewall+MLBT.
    Though I also liked Avast AV+Comodo Firewall+MLBT.

    Both the combos are real good. With Avast you won't get those annoying messages to upgrade which are there with Avira. I am also thinking about switching to Avast.

    How about AVG antivirus 2013 free edition?How does it fare in malware detection and removal as compared to other popular security suites like Avast/avira etc?

    I had been using avast 7 for the last couple of months but was compelled to switch to avg recently as the former caused my pc to hang whenever it performed any program update and so I became really frustrated with it-has anyone else experienced the same issue with avast av free edition?
