Norton and Avast are merging


Recommended Posts


The combination should lead to antivirus products that include the benefits of Avast’s focus on privacy and NortonLifeLock’s experience in identity,

well if we ignore avast owning advertising company and selling user data and lifelock before norton and their social security number scandal (ceo posted social security number internet claiming nobody can abuse it) then yes. Avast is bloat nowadays and norton always been bloat so we can only wonder what will happen. I stopped using avast on version 12 I think which started show popup ads on free edition. I liked media player interface avast (up to 4.8) most. Was simple yet still intuitive UI and worked down Windows 98. After it became more and more bloated. 4.8 worked until 2017 on defintion updates.
