How To Completely Remove Norton Or McAfee From Your Computer

There was a day — like 20 years ago — when Norton Utilities were essential. Now Symantec has made them so complex and bloated that you actually need two computers — one to compute and one to run the security apps…

I hate both Norton and McAfee with a bright purple passion because they suck the life out of your computer and make it difficult to use without adding a lot of value. Like the author of article, I use Microsoft Security Essentials which is free, combined with TuneUp Utilities which is not. I round out my utilities with CCleaner, Auslogics Disk Defrag [I don’t like TuneUp’s defragger] and Revo Uninstaller. All free!

You can follow the ‘via’ link above to go to the source and read the rest of the article and go to if you’d like to download any of the free utilities…

    Todd, you are right on! And they continue to be pre-loaded from the store (i.e. Best Buy) and most consumers have no clue. But, I get paid to take it off so… any good antivirus apps (*free) for Mac? I know traditionally they are pretty clean but have a few Mac clients looking for more “good feeling”.

    Keep up the blogging.. its extremely helpful.
