Is avast! better than Norton?

Asked by bea2345 (6033 points ) May 22nd, 2009

Both are anti-virus software. I purchased Norton 3 years ago and found it satisfactory. Then the Dell went to the shop and came back with avast! (a fortnight ago). Avast! is free, but the subscription to the Norton expires in August. The technicians disabled Norton and installed the other one instead. Should I resume Norton and remove avast!?
