Free Software and 6 months of updates for one of the best full featured PC security suites with the May edition of Computer Shopper magazine. Of course you could also subscribe and get three issues for £1, and a free tool kit thrown in.

As if that wasn't enough free stuff, the May issue also have a full version of PC Tools Disk Suite which I understand is a perfectly respectable defrag and backup tool.

I'm not usually a fan of cover disk freebies, but this is better than most.

Oh, this is my first post to hduk, so go easy on me please :-)

Just 180days (6 months) of updates I'm afraid Player 1. If you're anything like me, you'll probably have built a new PC by then anyway ;-)

I did the 6 months for £1 with PC Pro (Dennis Publishing too I believe) and they only charged me £1 at first. You have to cancel the subscription any time within that 3 months to not continue a full price subscription. I've always found their subscription department to be really helpful and efficient too.

I have had these 3 for £1 offers many times.After you have received your 2nd issue just phone up and cancel (don't forget to cancel your direct debit as well).All they will stop you is £1.
These offers are genuine.

PC Pro usually have the same offer as well.

I see your point - Security essentials, as well as AVG Free and a number of others do a great job with a small footprint. They are a totally different product to Norton's suite though.

The clue is in the name - Security Essentials. Its basic protection, which for most people is fine. My parents, on the other hand need something to protect them (and their bank details) from themselves, and Norton is far better at that.

“We believe the false sense of security provided by this tool (Microsoft Security Essentials) is almost as dangerous as having no security at all,” - ok, so not the fairest quote as it comes from the head of Norton - but you get the idea.

+1. This is free and by far a better product.

I've been using it since beta stages and cannot recommend it enough.

Everytime someone posts a good offer like

As it happens I do not use this product.
It's a good offer, that's all.
Take it or leave it

I put MSE on my missus' laptop when her NIS sub ran out & within a few days she'd picked up one of those fake virus popups inviting her to pay them to "cure" it.

It also nobbled Logitech's Squeezebox server software on another PC.

Agreed, it is a good offer, but not actually free and there is something that does the same thing so chill. 8-)

They would have to pay ME to install this dog poop on my PC.
#19
Nothing against the OP, but goddamn Norton sucks!! It causes more hastle than it's worth. And once it's on your PC, good luck removing it.

Definately agree go with microsoft security essentials, or even just AVG

I presume you don't like it then !
#21
I've a lot of professional experience with computers. When somebody tells me that they're home PC is running like a dog the first question I ask is how much RAM they have, the second question is have they installed Norton. Please, there are so many decent anti-virus progs out there, perfectly good free ones.
To me, Norton is as bad as a virus! Mcafee, much the same!
#22
Id rather have no protection the use this bloatware rubbish, might as well use a phropylactic with a hole in it. Save your money and sanity and buy NOD32 instead.
banned#23
Norton? Baha! No thankyou.
Seriously, I wouldn't even be payed to use this software...

You can get free virus scanners that do a better job than this!
#24
norton is totally rubbish, if you want to slow down your system then by all means isntall this tripe.

I mean come on, if you go to PC World and ask them clowns about anti virus etc they will get you to buy this rubbish....nuff said.
#25
Last month they gave away kaspersky on the cover disk. You send an email to get the code. Some bright sparks posted the email on forums and offer was discontinued with emails to that address bouncing.

Due to this free offer being leaked on the internet the request code... is no longer valid. The promotion has now ended.

In other words be quick.

Makes me LOL people recommending a MS product to protect exploits etc that their own operating system is open to.

If your THAT concerned about security just use linux. (And i'm not interested in some smart a55 posting a link to a linux vuneralbilty of which there are few either)


Nice post OP dont listen to the whiners they come it in force with this type of product...fact is it's 6 months worth of a now decent security package.

Both Norton and Microsoft's Anti-Virus software is crap. I never recommended MS's Anti-Virus?...

no antivirus is ever gonna be 100% safe, it falls down to the user having some common sense too.

linux isn't really an option for your average user. why learn a whole new operating system when you can just research a bit and get a decent antivirus?

when that 6 months is up, it'll be the people that installed it whining, when norten's bombarding them with pointless notifications.

that's just my experience anyway. feel free to install your tits off! :thumbsup:

I use security essentials, but I agree Norton is a more comprehensive product, and if the latest edition is anything like 2009, a very good product.

Totally agree with mith http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ is free and excellent.
Norton slows you down no end although they say on the box quicker loading etc be prepared to have your PC slowed down by Norton. As it come free as a free trial initially for 3 months or whatever with many new PC's then it is forced down many peoples throats that way.
Uninstall it and use the link ;) one MS thing that is actually good!

Nodding for NOD :thumbsup:
,but according the Virus Bulletin, Norton is much better then it was!

That's the most sensible post in this thread....nod and kasperskys are generally agreed to be the 2 best paid for AV's on the market.

Norton used to hog resources but was always decent protection, apparantely it's now been streamlined and isn't a half bad product now from what i read.
#36
Zone Alarm and AvG do the job fine. Then again, not downloading viruses is probably the easiest solution here.

Hopeless the worst AV on the market its bloatware and for someone who says they will probably build a new PC in 6months id expect you to know that we class it as malware sticking its noise in every time you press a button. This is aimed at PCworld users who have little to no clue about protecting there machines that's why it locks your computer down very tight so making changes is a complete nightmare.

There Symantec business is a way better product not even a 100mb and its used on servers this is nearly a gb in size with 900mb of *****. Microsoft security essentials is a very good free AV not like AVG and its non intrusive and i put that on client computers and I've never known a virus come through it, it reminds me of NOD32 2.7 and that was classed as one of the bust AV's ever.

I don't know why people still use Norton poor software often slowing down the OS and moaning like a bitch.


AVG is brilliant. I don't even think I would want Norton for free

The No.1 'anti-virus software' is in-fact scareware/spyware (A virus making out to be an anti-virus)!


What are you talking about its not the same product :roll:
