I have used Norton internet security before and i used avg antivirus before i again switched to the NEW Norton 360 Multi Device. I received a copy to review and i was hooked once again to my favourite antivirus , just because they have tweaked the anti-virus quite a bit to use the least power available from your pc to run the software and also making the running of the antivirus very smooth and unobtrusive to normal internet surfing.
