For the past 6 years I have used Norton as my security for my personal desk and laptops.I also have or am using Internet EXplorer as my main search program but that is another issue..

I really want/need to simplify what I am using and wonder whether the Telus security program could effectively replace Norton?Norton seems good, has good graphics and so on but if I dump it ( and I want to--its not a cost issue) and rely on Telus, would my security be as good or better?

Would appreciate any advice...

Telus uses some small company for their antivirus. It's good for the basics but won't offer full coverage like others out there.

 

Kaspersky is rated as the best frequently. Avast is good also.

 

I haven't touched norton since 2004 because it got so horribly bloated. Not sure if they've fixed that yet or not.

It looks like TELUS is now using bit defender.  The only difference is that TELUS brands it as TELUS Security instead of Bit Defender.   the programs are identical except for colors.

Telus still uses RadialPoint according to Telus' download page

 

Site: http://www.telus.com/security and http://www.telus.com/securitydownload

Download link: http://dl01.radialpoint.net/Telus/SPD55/Tsa_Bd.exe

 

BitDefender would be an improvement over RadialPoint either way, and as far as I can see, RadialPoint no longer offers antivirus services on their website.
