Lately, I have had an increase in clients complaining about slow computers. Oddly enough, these most recent customers have all had one program in common. Sure there were some useless toolbars, and unnecessary start-up items, but the biggest culprit lately has been the Norton Security Suite that Comcast is offering its subscribers for free. Now before you go bashing a certain product’s name, or uninstalling your Anti-virus altogether, I’d like to remind you that running a quality anti-virus program is very important.
It is, however, also very important to qualify the customer. What Comcast is offering is a full security suite (a group of many programs wrapped together) which can be a real burden on older computer systems. This is why you should contact your friendly, local, computer technician to get a solution that is right for you. (If that’s not an option check out Kaspersky AV (not the whole suite) and Super Anti-Spyware.
