If you want to receive this in time for Xmas, you may use next day special delivery for a cost of £4.95 which is now set as default on the site or you could change it to the free delivery option, which they expect to take 2 working days but it's no longer guaranteed to arrive before xmas.

I would have to be paid to accept this, so I would say it's definitely not a bargain. There are plenty of much better and completely free alternatives...

Anti-virus:
AVG: http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5
Avast: http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html
BitDefender: http://www.bitdefender.com/site/Main/view/Download-Free-Products.html

Anti-spyware:
Spybot Search & Destroy: http://www.download.com/3000-8022-10122137.html
Ad-aware: http://www.download.com/3000-2144-10045910.html

Firewall:
Zone Alarm: http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/company/products/trial_zaFamily/trial_zaFamily.jsp?lid=home_freedownloads

And to tidy up your PC's registry and stuff:
CCleaner: http://www.ccleaner.com/download/

Norton and McAfee's stuff is way overpriced and cause more problems than they fix in the long term. They are also a drag on the system resources.

There is free alternatives but they're not as good and not everyone wants to do stuff like that.

The cheapest price i found elsewhere for this package was about 50% more expensive than this deal, so i think it's very good.

I'll second that, Norton is a complete bloater that brings your computer to a virtual standstill. I even had a full price version that I bought after my "trial" ran out. I removed it and put CA on my system after two months use. It just killed my pc, it was soooo slooow with it on.

Use CA, free for a year, no drag on system resources.

just not true sorry, almost all the alternatives are better engineered, better priced, just.. better.
i would also have to be paid (many hundreds of pounds) to install Norton. It is that bad.

go with AVG and you don't really need a firewall if you are behind a router, use a safe web browser, and don't run as admin.
I and other geeks here have no particular axe to grind, take our advice and save yourself money+time or don't. I know people who have lost thousands of pounds through having their paypal and bank account passwords compromised via malware so i take this stuff seriously. please for your own sakes don't use Internet Explorer or Norton.

I use norton and IE and haven't had any problems
#8
i dodge through traffic and so far i haven't been run over.

99% of the security problems i've seen would be solved by one or more of the following:

- use a router if you have a broadband connection (not a USB modem or direct connection)
- not running as Admin (or not using Windows at all if viable)
- not using IE (use Firefox or Opera)
- don't run attachments in mail or anything from untrusted webpages

there is no buying common sense either. products like norton are marketed as being a quick fix for security - very misleading imho. if you know what you're doing you can run with no virus checkers etc but i wouldn't recommend that.

Norton's consumer product is unacceptably compromised because they only issue virus pattern updates on a weekly basis (it used to be Wednesday). So if a new virus or trojan is released into the wild on a thursday - you are exposed to it for 6 days before you can do anything about it. In this day and age that is completely unacceptable.

On top of this massive flaw it is slow, cumbersome and gives many people significant system problems.

I did use Norton problem free for about 3 years, but 3 viruses managed to make it through their AV product in 6 months (only common sense prevented me from actually being "infected"). This coupled with many reports of system problems from other people led me to drop the product about 2 years ago.

AVG is a fantastic AV product. I then use windows firewall behind a router firewall. If I wanted a better firewall then I'd use the free Zonealarm product. AVG's firewall didn't get a good review in the recent PCPRO review, but the AV is great - it just gets on and does the job - updating itself every day.
#10
Let's not start a thread war here, each to their own is what I say. But as this site is kind of about saving people money I think most techies would agree that Norton is a unnecessary purchase at best, even if you aren't technically minded. Follow the steps Smiff mentions and ALWAYS BACKUP then you'll be fine. Put the money towards one of those external hard disks that keep cropping up on here.

I'd fourth that. There are indeed free equivalents on the internet that are every bit as good as the paid for applications.

Free-Av is another excellent free anti-virus package.

ZoneLabs is a Firewall that I cannot recommend enough.

CA software is highly recommended. My company is a CA partner and it's a top choice :)

I am really surprised by that accusation.

As viruses are discovered so frequently, it is essential that updates occur at least daily, sometimes more often, dependant on new attacks.

There was certainly an AV defs update today (Tuesday)
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/download/pages/US-N95.html

and Symantec, the manufacturers of Norton, appear to issue updated defs on almost a daily basis for their AV application
http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/defs.added.html

Also worth noting that Norton Internet Security comprises of much more than AV and firewall software.

The other thing you need to ask yourselves is what is the incentive for freebie software writers to keep issuing new updates, or indeed ones that do not produce false positives? There is clearly a lot at stake for any subscription service but what is at stake for a freebie supplier?

Yup, norton sucks, and doesn't do you computer any good.

Had a client last weekend, who norton was interferring with there mail sending, it was validating it during sending, then sending, but leaving it in the outbox.. 60 seconds later send it again. Took me ages to track down, and they had all their clients pissed by by mass emails.

Use avg myself

Symanted Norton products are not a bad choice, but the trouble is that it's very memory hogging (certainly for older spec computers), and tricky to fully uninstall. Saying that, Symantec are an excellent choice for backup softwares and enterprise products.

Because there are so many product options now it's worth shopping around. You only see Symantec and Mcafee in PCWorld for example as they have a deal with them.

CA antivirus is excellent - it uses 2 virus scanning engines, and updates sometimes up to two times per day (in the USA they actually offer a $1,500 money back deal if a computer gets infected with the product correctly installed!!). The free link that was posted on this thread is the identical version as you buy on the shelf, it was a special free promotion for Microsoft customers.

CA Internet security uses a re-badged Zone Alarm Pro for the firewall, and also includes an impressive antispam, antispyware, parental controls, and antivirus. Includes 12 months updates and also free product updates too.

However (and you'll hate me for saying this)... AVG 'free' antivirus misses a lot of known viruses. It gets top reviews, however I have had many call outs to remove viruses where AVG has been the installed program. So for everyone who rates it, i'm one who doesn't.

I used to have the whole Norton suite for years, and after my PC almost grinded to a halt, a friend of mine installed Avast! anti-virus and found my PC riddled with viruses that Norton couldn't find, not even with the "bloodhound" setting maxed out. I also had various spywares floating around my machine. Exactly the same problem was experienced by someone whose PC I fixed a couple weeks ago. They had some McAfee equivalent with the whole anti-virus/spam/firewall/spyware suite, and their PC was virtually crippled. I uninstalled the whole lot, did a clean up using CCleaner, installed AVG, SpyBot and Ad-aware, did a complete system sweep on all 3 and they picked up no end of viruses, spyware, ad-ware, trojans etc. They said they can't remember their PC being so fast.

I really don't believe Norton to be adequate. AVG is very lightweight, frequently updated, and doesn't require you to pay a yearly subscription fee for the virus definition downs after the 1st year. It's unlimited and constantly updated.

I just speak from personal experience, which I have quite a lot of, and I know a fair few others who swear by the free alternatives.

If you want to buy Norton's stuff, it's up to you, but I really don't think you need to.

I live near a place called Norton, 'tis in the the North East of England....and yes I too have had viruses. Do you think it travels through the air?

Just the other week I had a really bad chest infection. I agree with you lot, it must have come from Norton as the sea breeze must blow the germs inland.

Forget the the other advice on here, stick with Beechams and you won't go wrong!!! Well it works for me at least.

Staples and PC World round my way have had Norton Internet Security 2007 for a shade under £25 for the past month. I had to look twice as usually the price is asterisked with "When bought with a new PC", which it wasn't. Must be some seasonal or ongoing price drop on the product from Symantec.

[edit]
PC World, Norton Internet Security 2007, search for code: 540052 (using product code since the URL uses session IDs)
£24.99, free delivery + 6% quidco

Norton Internet Security 2007 is £25 on Amazon too

They offer daily updates to business users, but afaik home users using the basic product have to wait for weekly updates. That is why I stopped using it.

There is a thread here for free kaspersky, that is the best anti-virus product, also get free zonealarm, that is all you need, I even have trouble hacking computers with that on.

Only joking about the hacking.

Bryan, try uninstalling it and running ZoneAlarm Free with AVG/Avast/Active VirusShield. It'll be like upgrading the RAM and CPU of your computer.

Seriously, people, listen to us geeks and believe us when we say Norton is really crappy and bloated, it really is worse than having a virus on your system - most viruses don't slow down your computer as much.

...and what part of a free AV or firewall you quote covers anti-spam, privacy service, site restrictions, etc? :roll:
#31
You either love Norton or you don't, I have it on my system and I know there is free versions but I am happy with it. I have decided to have the free stuff on my laptop and Norton on my main computer to see if I can be converted off Norton, anyway I am upgrading norton and found one cheaper, with delivery £22.98 I shall order from here unless someone know a better deal. Not sure about this quido thing I am a newbie :)
