    Only the paid version has real time protection.

    I personally use MBAM Premium and Windows Defender, adequate for me. I practice safe surfing, with all the new viruses coming out every day, you can be hit at anytime so pay attention.

    I think I`ll eventually change from Norton once I`ve found one that suits my needs.

    Once again thanks all.

    Worst beef I have with Norton and whole house is that it's worse than NSA with it's constant spying and two way conversation with their system and very difficult to get rid of.
