You say Norton is a huge process hog, the test show it is not

Oh ok so one test from one source overrides the experience I have had using Norton in the past. Good to know.

I think you are not up to date anymore, Norton has been completely rewritten years ago and its one of the lightest AV.



Fair enough, though I also don't know if you conveniently cut off your screenshot to only show some of the processes. I can do the same thing with Avast as follows



Come to think of it, you're right too... lol

Guys we're are going well of the Subject of this topic, this should be in its OWN topic if you wish to continue it.

At this rate it could well be locked, then people would be screaming about the original subject being suppressed.
