Ya know, this kind of seems like Deep Freeze, other than the fact that this creates another environment for programs while DF just reverts to a set image every time you reboot.

From linked article:
[quote]So by flagging installed applications on the basis of being known and trusted by Norton, being known and trusted by the community of users (a wisdom of crowds approach to security) and those which are unknown, Symantec can save time by only scanning the unknowns.[quote]


Uh... WTF!
So if I have a virus infect Firefox (as given in the example) Norton skips it?



And after reading the article, I'm glad they made improvements. Still wouldn't use it though.

Avast has always been good. I've been highly recommending it for years now and nobody I know has EVER had a problem.

I think perhaps pebkac?

C'mon tzetsin, don't be shy. Tell us how you really feel. I gotta say that so far it sounds pretty similar to how I feel about Norton.
