NIS 2011 or KIS 2011

Post by freakie on Wed 29 Dec 2010, 11:34 am

Hey, I was wondering if anyone had enough experience with both Kaspersky 2011 and Norton 2011.
I'm using Kaspersky, but am not sure which to use on my other PC. According to AV-Comparatives.com, Kaspersky apparently has a lower score (Advanced), but has a higher score in proactive defense. And I like the fact it has so many settings. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

I don't know about newer versions of Norton, but it used to be known for huge memory consumption.

Kaspersky user here by the way.

You can't trust tests. They aren't reliable as the samples are gathered ahead of time and maybe obsolete from the database at testing time.

I used Kaspersky 2010 for a few days, but really dragged down the system. Norton was awful. Had a mind of it's own. Spent 4 hours trying to shut it down as it was getting in the way of something(can't remember what).
