What do you think - Norton vs AVG? (antivirus and utilities, etc)

My old-ish computer is getting creaky and I don't have the expertise, time, or patience to manually do all the hygiene actions it's long overdue for.

My Norton subscription keeps trying to sell me stuff - today it's their Ultimate Utilities package, which would be nice but appears quite pricey. And, they are now tied with Lifelock which I recall at least used to advertise (i.e. support) some pretty nasty RW programming.

Currently available a whole helluva lot cheaper from a reliable source: AVG Ultimate 2021 - 10 devices - 2 years

I'm thinking I should ditch Norton and go with AVG. Looking for a compare from anyone who is familiar with both.

I am not looking for the "best" in individual tools, really want one product that covers all the important things with a simple interface I don't have to think hard about, which is why I went back to Norton many years ago. (And I do NOT want or need any online password "vault" - just more fluff Norton has added lately).

What say you all?

Springsteen : Live at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, 2006

A little different than Top-40 Springsteen - and quite excellent, IMO.

Casey (PA) and Manchin (WV) need phone calls. (Re: Women's Health Protection Act)

They are missing from the co-sponsor list of the Senate version of the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021

This is the bill in response to the craven TX law.

We need every Dem senator to get on board. (Then we need to exclude basic constitutional rights from the filibuster. But even that doesn't help if we don't have every D. We might get Murkowski but we can be sure Collins will have "concerns".)


Also check co-sponsors for the House bill and make sure your Congress Critter is there.
