They tell a white lie as though it's the ultimate truth, and people believe it just because it's advertised like "We have the BEST anti-virus on earth." while their product actually sucks to the maximum and is in fact the worst you can ever buy.1) Norton Antivirus is commonly known to slow down computers with their ridiculously designed slow code-base.
