Don't use the damn things!

My brother had Norton on his machine. It takes twice as long to boot and
seemed to be one of the most unstable machines I have ever used. I once
installed some software and it took 3 hours to make all it's backups.

I can reinstall windows and most of the applications I  use regularly in
less time. After a clean install the system is generally noticably fastet
too.

What's the point - particularly if they can even mess up and get in the way
of the installation of something as unobtrusive as Vuescan? I suspect the
backup will be no different to the previous installation backup as Vuescan
does not intrude in any system directories, files and in particular does not
use the registry.
