    Sick And Tired Of Paying For Norton 10th Jul 18 at 11:50 AM
    I am really sick of tired of paying for Norton per year.. I have got the Internet security package that also has the antivirus included. My renewal is up in the next 30 days..

    Now I am wondering what are the alternatives to use out there that is way much cheaper that Norton itself and not have to renew it every year (especially paying for it)

    If you really love Norton, then just get the required key for less; https://www.ebay.co.uk/b/Norton-Antivirus-and-Internet-Security-Software/175689/bn_776288

    Others may suggest to try a different solution altogether.

    Get rid of Norton. Use the free built in Windows AV.

    Is Norton still a thing? Very 2003.

    If you are running Windows 10 then a combination of the built-in Windows Defender and Malwarebytes would be a good option.

    If not, then one of the free offerings such as Avast or Bitdefender should be considered.

    I use Windows Defender plus Malwarebytes and recommend it. Got a new laptop recently and the first thing to do was to remove the trial version of Mcafee!
