Google Unveils The Google Pack

Spoing Re:Norton? (473 comments)

A couple of times I was hit by a trojan by simply going to a web page. Next thing you know, my system gets infected, and Norton shuts down completely and won't start back up again. That's what you call protection? No thanks.

While Symantec's Norton AV is one of the most notorious AV programs out there, if you're relying on an AV to protect you ... as the latest exploit shows ... you are already in trouble.

AV products "protect" you as much as using garbage bags on top of your shoes when walking across broken glass.
