Windows 10: Windows Defender vs. Norton Security Suite
Windows Defender vs. Norton Security Suite
Good morning all!
I'm a few weeks into Windows 10. I uninstalled Norton Security Suite (free from Comcast) to install the upgrade.
Windows Defender is doing its thing (I'm sure), but now I'm looking for thoughts on these two AV programs that are both available free to me.
What's your preference? Thoughts .... comments?
Thanks to all who read this and those who also reply.

Norton Security Suite definitively offers more features than WD, in terms of protection.
Even when talking about detection, WD always scores as the worst AV from all known brands.
As far as I know, Norton is somewhat resources heavy, but if it runs fine on your laptop then go for it.
Thanks very much TairikuOkami ,
I was thinking that would likely be the case ... Reinstalling Norton will be my next task.
I also dumped Norton from Comcast..........
Windows Defender and Malwarebytes Anti Malware will protect you just fine.......unless you are spending time on questionable sites....
Defender has developed into a much better program than with past operating systems.......
You might want to give it a try for a while and think about before rushing back into a third party program...
I'll keep that in mind. I have had difficulties installing Norton in the past.
I just upgraded to Win 10, from Win 7, I am really confused.
My Xfinity (Comcast) internet includes free Norton Security Suite and I believe Win 10 includes something like it. Should I continue using Norton Security suite or do I remove it?

Try them free for 30 days. Norton Security ask an email and a password to send the product key validation. Also, you need the email and the password to complete the installation.
Norton Utilities won't ask anything. You'll be ask to reboot:...
Hi, I've had an issue with Norton Security Suite supplied by Comcast ever since upgrading to Windows 10. It's a perpetual popup of the Norton Download Manager whether Norton is installed or not. End up going back to Norton support and though their...
