Last Customer Reviews: Norton vs Spybot

Danny
A fair price for a fair software.
Jemma
Does Norton antivirus work for Mac? You wrote in your Norton antivirus review that the version for Mac computers is not available.
Ricky Craig
Hi, guys! Thanks for the review. I personally used Norton’s software for my whole life. I think that their antivirus solutions are also great, but I would definitely use a stronger firewall/VPN to be sure.

So I got this in 2018, it did remove some spyware, but not all. Well last week I kept trying to play fallout 4 and was getting really bad frame rates. Did everything trying to fix it. Finally I went into thr game, and when it began to lag as usual, I brought up task maskmanager. The only item even remotely showing that it was using the disk was avast. Disk usage was at 100% but avast was using only 0.4mb. Weird I know. So I brought it up to see what it was doing, and it was in silent mode so as to not interfere with gaming. But then it popped a warning that some programs were slowing my machine. Opened that and only 3 things showed. Adobe reader, steam and spybot, that had the biggest bar of the 3. So I went back to task manager, still claimed spybot was using nothing. But I ended task on both its processes anyways, and bam! Disk usage dropped from 100% to just 7%. This program became the very thing it claimed to combat, and was being underhanded in hiding the fact that it was using 93% of the disk! I will never use this ever again
