I have just joined.. And then was doing search if i should use windows firewall or norton..
Im currently using A.V.Norton Security Deluxe
And it works fine with windows 10.. BUT ! - Read = Microsoft Windows 10 (all versions) . BUT Edge browser not supported..
But please dont use,
Norton Security Toolbar
Norton Safe Search as default for Chrome
Norton Identity Safe
Norton Home Page for Chrome
And then i use Malwarebytes FREE !
I use to be a die hard Avast Free user. But dont like the changes they made in the last few year's..
Using defender i had stuff slip in, and im a very basic P.C. user...
But still cant decide to use norton firewall or windows..
Norton says this:
"I want to disable the Limited Periodic Scanning in Microsoft Windows Defender
Microsoft is making a strong effort to convince consumers that the Windows operating system is secure. One way that Microsoft has chosen to make this case to consumers is by encouraging consumers to enable Windows Defender to perform a periodic scan. When enabled this scan will run even when another 3rd party security solution is enabled.
We do not recommend enabling Windows Defender's periodic scanning feature on a Windows 10 system running Norton. Periodic scanning is redundant and will require unnecessary additional power consumption and may result in conflicting notifications and messaging.
Norton products provide a more comprehensive and complete protection. To know more, read Why should I stay with Norton instead of choosing Microsoft Windows Defender?"
I don't see why some call Norton "a joke" when Defender only scans and updates periodically. In my experience, both Defender and Norton have missed viruses they should have caught. When I check the logs, I see that neither one has done much besides gorging themselves on "cookies". There is just too much disagreement on this subject for the average user to figure out what he should do.
My offline scan now works- I think I used an image recovery but it was a while ago.
I use Defender, MBAM, native firewall set to default and the ISP firewall I have configured.
I will be bridging their firewall and using my own.
I wonder how many agree with this statement, made by Jimbo 45 last year : "Norton was a joke long before W10 was even THOUGHT OF. !! You don't need ANY A/V on W10 other than the built in Windows defender. " Norton seems not to be very highly regarded but I've not had any problems with it, tho I don't like its interface.
I'm not disputing it, I just don't know and I get tired of paying for junk.
My window 10 pro has comodo,my window 10 home runs AVG and they are loads safer then Win Defender for me
(A) It ain't broke, don't fix it. OR -(B) If it let's you down, time to move onIs that about the size of it????
We've used Norton for about five years on four business machines connected to the 'net and have had maybe two incidents, both of which Norton Customer Service found, removed and repaired the damage at N/C. Not perfect, but hard to complain about that.
