CORSAIR Diagnostics yellow flags Norton 360

I get a warning regarding having TWO firewalls installed. It claims I have Windows Defender and Norton 360 installed. Norton 360 "controls" Windows Defender therefore I cannot turn off Defender. But the yellow warning icon is DRIVING ME INSANE!

 

Any thoughts?

Norton is your problem. It is overbearing, uses way too much resources, buggy, and generally less effective IMO. Its generally more like a virus than an anti-virus.

 

Norton was found to be selling certificates with googles name on them to other people. Chrome doesn't trust Norton certs anymore, and I don't trust Norton.

 

Windows defender will do just as good a job, while being more tuned to the OS to prevent you from even noticing its doing its job. It has come a long way, and is much better than Norton or McAffe... both of which I pretty much consider trojans.

I appreciate that info. I have Norton 360 as part of LifeLock. But it does seem to be overbearing. Do you recommend any OTHER anti-virus malware protectors or just Windows Defender? I DO have a couple of trojans on my machine which is WHY I got Norton 360 added to my account.
