    I am running Windows XP SP3 on two networked PCs. On one I have NAV 2009 and on the other Norton360. Both are coming up for renewal shortly. Should i just renew them both or should I make use of Norton360's license for 3 PCs and upgrade the NAV2009 to Norton 360? What are the relative merits of the two programs?

    Norton 360 includes Norton AntiVirus, but it has extra components such as a two-way firewall and free online backup storage - see Computer Security Systems for a comparison of features.

    The 3 PC edition of Norton 360 is the same price in NZ$ as 3 single-PC licenses for Norton AntiVirus 2009, so I'd get the 3 PC edition of Norton 360.

    I had an older laptop in for treatment for sluggishness which has been largely corrected. In discussion with the technician I mentioned the possibility of installing N360 instead of the current NAV 2009. I was advised not to do this as N360 is bloated and will seriously degrade performance. I would be interested in your comments regarding the advisiblity of ditching NAV 2009 and installing N360 on my desktop PC which has a 2GHz processor and 512MB DDR memory. It has a 279GB hard disk with 259GB free space.

    I use NAV 2009 myself on a PC with a 2.5 GHz processor and 512 MB RAM and I am satisfied with it - it uses few resources and has no or very little impact on performance.
    I have never used any PC with Norton 360 so I cannot really comment on that.
