i was talking about detection rates/footprint..of course if u compare the price of each product along with the support it includes, then avast is much more better..

did u use norton 2010 or 2011 because these versions are very light i think as light as avast(haha i didnt say almost tech ) and at least in my system they ran smoothly..
