I am looking for the best Norton product for my Bother in Law's PC

My BIL has 3 Dell's and they are all XP's. He was thinking he had to buy all new computers, but I told him to hold off until I checked with Norton. Can someone please tell me what to install on his computer to keep his computers from crashing or getting infected? Thanks

Hai 4piper,
Welcome to Norton community. Staying back with win XP will not be a good idea, mostly due to security.

If your BIL can afford upgrading the systems as well as OS, its safer.

Based on purpose of usage(like gamming, office works, business etc) the Norton product will differ.

If protection is what matters, the get NIS (AV+ Firewall) or NAV( just AV).

If backup is necessary you can move on to N360(AV + Firewall + backup + tuning). It also have cleanup features too.

Hope it helps

Hi 4piper,

While Norton will continue to support Windows XP for the foreseeable future, the notion that the operating system can be adequately protected using security software alone is not a valid one.  Norton will help to lessen the risk, but using XP from now on will still be a gamble - the operating system itself is fundamentally unsafe and becomes increasingly at risk as time goes on.
