Re: Norton and Malwarebytes

I would keep malwarebytes as a backup and do a full scan every month with it

Re: Norton and Malwarebytes

That's what i do.

One other option might be to get rid of Norton and just use premium Malwarebytes. Does premium Malwarebytes scan for viruses, spyware etc or does it just look for malware and also does it do continuous full scans?

Re: Norton and Malwarebytes

It does but Norton does do really well in tests whereas the last time I looked (admittedly a while ago) malwarebytes virus side was not that great

Re: Norton and Malwarebytes

Thank you for the further reply.

I have found Norton to be a bit of a nightmare recently with constant error messages - usually from scans but I've lost count of the number of times I've had to reinstall it for whatever reason this past 12 months - which is why I am thinking of getting rid should Malwarebytes provide a decent virus/spyware etc solution.

Re: Norton and Malwarebytes

Based on my experience, Norton was a crap like for the last 10 years. However, now it's much better than it used to be. And the claims of being awful at detecting viruses are from ppl who no longer use it. I was one of such people as well. However, after exploring the list of suggested antiviruses at https://www.firesticktricks.com/best...firestick.html, I decided to give a chance to Norton again. And I must admit it works pretty good.

Re: Norton and Malwarebytes

Strangely enough, Norton isn’t mentioned in your link…

Re: Norton and Malwarebytes

Researching an AV on a Firestick site hahaha I spent a lot of time in the Android/Firestick/Kodi/APK scene and most bloggers and vloggers in the scene are absolutely clueless
