    When people say "I installed Norton & it came up with loads of Trojan removals ect" that's because you have been using very poor AV software before hand. Norton Full Internet Security does a good job or your money back is what they say...

    On the other hand you should stop downloading dodgy software in the first place putting Trojan horses & viruses on your system in the first place, with Norton if you are downloading a program which is suspect they will stop you from running it & analyse that program to see what it is doing before they allow that program to install on any system across the world using Norton.

    You need to trust your AV to do a good job & your pc will run clean with Norton.

    AVG Free, Windows Defender are very weak protectors & Win Defender just looks after Microsoft's Software & then malware destroys your 3rd party software you have installed which made me go to a "paid for" AV.

    Not necessarily doubting your opinion, but please explain.

    You are saying that WD does not protect your entire system ? Can you please state your experience with non-protection of 3rd party software.

    There's no AS (Anti Stupid) program. Blindly stumbling thru internet "armed" with any AV is like going to a gun fight armed with a knife.
