    I was thinking of trying this (I use Norton on my computer) and wondering if you have any opinions on this. I did a search but nothing came up on the forum. I was using Lookout but thinking of switching. Thanks

    I don't use any antivirus for my phone, but I've heard good things about Lookout. Any real reason for switching?

    For my PC I use a combination of MSE and Malwarebytes, Norton or any other big name software take up too much memory and bog computers down, from my personal experience. So I have the same feeling an app like Norton would do the same to my phone.

    I feel as you do Dezymond, most PC AV programs are loaded with bloat, trying to cover all bases at once.

    A trimmed version would be very cool, as you do not need most of the extras you get on 360.
    The interface should also be neat and trim for mobile users as no phone has 1 TB of storage space. The interface needs to reflect efficiency and speed, without bogging down the phone's resources.
