I want to know more about virus protection. I have a computer that has Norton on it.
And when my subscription has expired, I was prompted with PC Tools in which I am not sure if this comes with my old security program to continue my subscription or a virus that attacks my computer when my Norton has expired.
Can someone please enlighten me?
