Effective Anti Virus.
I have had NORTON on my comp for two years but they seem intent on selling extras all year round. This hacks me right off and am looking for advice from you wise folks on here as to which one I should purchase for the next twelve months. Any thoughts would be appreciated please.. Chris

As others have indicated, the anti-virus protection that comes free with Windows is perfectly adequate. (At one time I'd have warned people off it, as its updating process could get stuck in a loop, dramatically slowing a computer down. These days though, it's third-part programs which are far more likely to slow your computer to a crawl).
My Windows 11 Lenovo PC has clear sailing with two free programs. Their upgrade offers are pretty seamless and not an annoyance.
