I recently removed Norton and installed McAfee which comes free from my
broadband provider. Shortly after downloading my computer began to act oddly.

I got fatal error messages, some of my drivers would not load and then the
computer began to reboot every 5 - 10 minutes, even if it was idle.

I thought I had a virus. After a long day of talking with techie friends,
and removing and reinstalling software I ran a virus scan. Each time I tried
to do so the computer rebooted.

Now, it does not show any more error messages or reboot unless I try to run
McAfee.

Should I go back to Norton?
