    Norton 360 AV....Crap or ok?

    Alright so, I had Avira AV on my computer and then my father, being the dumb ass he is, thinks he knows it all about computers because he took a computer class for 2 weeks. (He learned how to type in the class, nothing else) So, he got rid of my Avira, which was kept out 100+ viruses that my nephew tried to download. (He thought they were games, turns out they were backdoor trojans) Now we have Norton 360, I honestly don't like it but I want to see what you guys think of it. I hate Norton because we've had it before and have had tons of viruses uploaded onto this computer by people I live with. All from either games or fake music or fake movies.
    So, what do you guys think of Norton 360? I honestly don't prefer store brand named AVs because they usually end up being the most popular for hackers to crack. What's so good about this version of Norton that's supposedly made it the "#1 AntiVirus in America!". (I'm quoting my father)

    Now, I'm not sure if this is the correct section or not, I've looked everywhere and couldn't find any threads about this so I posted it here, sorry if it's the wrong place.

    Well, I have Norton... It protects your computer alright, but I reckon it protects your computer too much, you can't even run PerX Injector without Norton self removing it.

    I recommend Avast. It's free, just like many other but it's not as annoying as Norton, and it actually gets rid of the virus not just let it sit in a separate file. Also you need Mozilla Firefox, or another browser. If you are stuck on IE still get something else, it's not as safe with the downloads.
    Avast also has a mode called "gaming mode" (or something like that). What it does is stops the program from displaying messages and annoying sounds, that usually come with anti-virus software.

    Need any other help just reply!

    I'm honestly sick of Norton. I download 1 WoW private server launcher and BOOM *Norton has detected a trojan on your computer, we've deleted it because the sticks are stuck too far up our own asses to realize it's not an actual threat.* I had to literally shut off Norton. I'm glad I have Firefox + VirusTotal addon. I always check the website and the stuff I download before I download it. Even if there is something wrong with the program, and someone put a keylogger on it, VirusTotal scans it before putting it on my computer and lets me know if it's safe. Freaking <3 that addon.

    Norton is like green poop, AVG is brown poop, And Avast is the Toilet.

    I use Norton 2011. I suggest using Avast though due to the fact it turns off when you turn it off. When you turn Norton off it still runs in the background & blocks things like PerX. Avast won't block it if it's off. So getting Avast is the way to go.

    I told my dad that hackers can easily break through the defense barriers of Norton. I told them that hackers use the one I was using and he was all "Well that means they know how to get through that too!"...sometimes I'm ashamed he's my father. (correction, MOST OF THE TIME I am)
    I tried to save him over $100 on a stupid AV that doesn't even work. It can't detect the simplest and yet complex of hacks but it can detect a game that looks like a hack to it...I've had Norton turned off for about 3 weeks now and my computer runs a lot faster with it off. Every 5 minutes you get a pop up saying to upgrade or to search or scan or set something up. I wish I was a kid again so I could do the sad face and make people believe me haha.
