avoid this virus at all costs


Each to their own opinions.

I was always a Norton hater from the past when it killed your pc by slowing it to a crawl and getting it's hooks into every bit of a pc making it a nightmare to remove.

But having installed the 2010 version on my parents laptops, I am pleasantly surprised. No longer resource hungry and very good at doing its job. Check independent test reviews and you'll find most of them put NIS at the top of the list as best security.:)

If I wasn't using Kaspersky 2010 ion my pc as it comes free with Barclays (although this is also a cracking package, much better than their 2009 version) then i'd happily use Norton now.;-)

Yes you can also get free software such as AVG and Avast, but they're free for a reason and it's because their not as comprehensive or capable as the ones you pay for. Don't believe me on this either, look again at the independent tests where AVG is coming nowhere near as high up the same table.:x

Voted Hot for a good price:thumbsup:

This is a really good price - used to have Norton but same as above - very very slow. didn't renew it after the year and been using Microsoft Security Essentials which is free online. May get this though at that price. Heat from me.
#4
Personally, I think Norton is the only virus out there that you actually pay to have on your system. Always found Instrusive, resource hungry and removing it is always a probelm (hence they released a removal tool). Saying that, 2010 may be better like you say.

Not one for me, but good price if you like Norton. :thumbsup:

Also, watch out for the new anti-virus companies renewal policies. Some of them, you need to put your credit card details in on registration and they automatically renew unless you opt out every year.

Hot for price... not for product.

quote from the above article:-
"Utilizing innovative technologies that crank up your PC's protection without bogging down its performance, Norton Internet Security 2010 remains the best overall security suite on the market".

And from the full review:-
"Small Performance Impact - Despite the new protection technology, the 2010 suite is still thrifty with system resources. It added 36 percent to boot time in my testing, which is not bad. True, newcomers K7 TotalSecurity Version 10.0 and eScan added less, with 7 and with 19 percent respectively, but they offer less protection.

The browsing test took no longer with Norton installed—most impressive. It slowed the file move/copy test by just 5 percent, beaten only by K7 with 2 percent and Panda Internet Security 2010 with 3 percent. In a similar test of zip/unzip operations Norton added 5 percent, bettered only by eScan and Panda with 4 percent. And it added a not-bad 27 percent to the time required for automatically installing and uninstalling large Windows Installer packages. Overall it's very good. That makes two years in a row that Norton has done well in my performance tests—I'd say the suite's past reputation as a resource hog should definitely be dead and buried".

Have to agree with that based on the PC's I've installed it on. The 2010 version is nothing like the product of a few years back, (which is what most critics on this site seem to be basing their warnings on).

I have had AVG Free for some time on my desktop and just lately on my laptop its OK bought the full version from one of the deals it was crap went back to the free one if it ain't broke dont fix it
#13
you'll find it hard to show a Norton 2010 review thats bad.

they did what the customers wanted, made it lighter, faster and better.
Am now using Norton 360v4 and its using less RAM than Eset Smart Security was.

its around 8mb of RAM and I have a pic from my task manager to show it.

Anyone slagging off norton now, hasnt tried the new products through either arrogance thinking they know better, or just cos they have their head up their backside.

And you are comparing a stripped down free antivirus against a full blown Internet security package?

Comparing Avast internet Security aginst Norton, Kaspersky,Mcafee is comparing like for like.............................although it works out dearer than this:-D

I used to use Norton, but after HSBC gave me mcafee for a year - I've never looked back. Got some great features and much much quicker to do things with than Norton, and has certainly kept my machines virus free.

I accept this is a full retail version, but an OEM, 3 user version of mcafee is just £6.50 on oyyy.co.uk - I bought one with my new laptop and it arrived yesterday, working perfectly!

Hot from me and highly recommended :thumbsup:

There is nothing wrong with norton internet security 2010 at all,
it does not slow your pc down (that was very old versions several years ago)

It does not constantly "nag" you with pop ups and questions, it uses a database of trusted apps and processes, which removes the need to do this - fantastic :w00t:

Norton tech support is very good, have you ever used it?

You really have got it bad haven't you? :-D

I was on about comparing like for like on price, comparing a full internet security package against another full internet package, not a free stripped down antivirus.

Everyone has their own ideas on what is the best security packages for their PC's. You gave your opinion, i gave mine and others gave theirs. We really don't need to pick arguments to try and force ours views on to others now do we? :?

I prefer Kaspersky 2010 but am happy to use Norton otherwise. Mattmerch likes Kaspersky, knocka likes AVG Free, kaks26 likes Microsoft Security Essentials, v6dlc likes Avast, JustifiedAncient likes McAfee, slackrat77 and money-talks like Norton.

Each makes their own choice but doesn't jump on other peoples decisions.

BTW, what do you choose? :p
#24
according to revoo, the statistics show norton is 2nd place, link here: http://www.reevoo.com/browse/product_type/software?order=customer_score, i use this site as its genuine customer reviews and i review products myself on that site. heat added, however im going for kaspersky as its free form my bank

had no problem removing 2010 trial to put 360 on my machine. had more of a problem removing AVG free from a customers laptop a few weeks back.

you should be aware that Symantec do a 'clean tool' for download if you have any problems removing norton products.

They were #1 in these tests CLICK and voted AV product of the year !

And as for the "you cant uninstall norton brigade" another myth busted.......

see this clean and simple uninstaller tool from norton

God help your IT customers with this blinkered view :shock:
#27
I work for a well known Security / AV company which isn't Symantec and despite getting free AV from this company I choose to use Norton. Having spoken to guys at work who have been there longer they admitted that the industry happily perpetuated the myth that Symantec products are slow resource hogs to steal custom from them. Somehow this is now regarded as fact. In the past Nortons could be a pain to shift, but the advantage of this is malware can't get rid of it and Symantec provide tools to remove it when upgrading to newer versions.


This is a great price.
