Symantec recently increased renewal prices for subscriptions to its Norton AntiVirus and Norton System Works software to US$20.
McAfee prices have climbed steadily in recent years, from $5 in 2000 to $20 today for off-the-shelf versions of its VirusScan product.
Some tech folks say its because of all new Internet threats; others say its competition in the antivirus market from software giant Microsoft, who has made no secret of its intentions to enter the market.
