Norton has come along way in 09/2010 yet people still thinks its the hog it used to be wayyyy back when. People should update their opinions along with their computers.
#3

may have come along way but still not worth £30/£60... ;-)

I use free protection software, has always worked fine for me

http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/kaspersky-internet-security-2010-for-pc-03033281-pdt.html

kaspersky is cheaper for 3 users, (collect at store price) , and better software imo

I work for pc world (same as currys) and would still not buy Norton from customer feedback
Also, "performance pack" is a little intrusive, nags you to do stuff
#7
its worth it to those that wanna pay for their software =] i dont pay or use open source ;]
#8
I use free software too, but the point is that some ppl feel better protected with paid for software. However, £30 is too much.

It's pretty stupid to pirate anti virus software.

But anyway, norton is horrendous, is a resource hog (slows down computer), and is inferior to the free microsoft security essentials

Some people form their opinions from actually using it, Norton 2009 was rubbish & allowed viruses through that I had to get Kaspersky to get rid of.

Norton's reputation is well earned.

norton still sux
#12
norton is crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
suspended#13
Search this product, first page google

£27.50 - Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Norton-Internet-Security-2010-Computers/dp/B002M787XG

Still too much
I use AVG and i have never had a virus, ever!
#14
if u think 09 was a sys hog u need to scrap the s***box u call ur computer and get an upgrade matey. a virus will get through regardless of ur AV if ur not the brightest spark using one. i used 09 for over a year and not one virus infected mine.
#15
norton has actually come on loads sinice the resource hoggin crap detection days..
im just about at the end of a free trial of norton360 as i wanted to test it since someone claimed it had improved and it has been fine..
its kept the pc clean (done few periodicaly tests via online scanners to double check etc) its used hardly any resources..

but i still wouldnt pay £30 for it, let alone any av package tbh..

Yes Common Sense 2010 is the best protection, but that doesn't change the fact that Norton is garbage and a waste of money.
#17
Been using this for 6 months now and well pleased with it. Well featured and works unobtrusively in the background. Unlike my neighbour who uses AVG and is always calling me when she gets viruses.

Wouldn't pay over £30, mind you I got mine free from amazon vine :thumbsup:
#18
Norton is horrendous, it IS still a resource hog. As long as you're behind a hardware firewall e.g. router then you only need a basic software firewall like Windows Firewall.

Tests have shown that it is constantly outperformed by free alternatives such as Avast!

norton ISNT a resource hog anymore at all..
and good luck to you if you think windows firewall is enough to protect you, most rats can bypass that for a start.
please show these links to these tests that state it is constantly outperformed then, will be interesting read..

prove it, idiot.
Norton 2010 products consistently score in the top 10, infact AV comparatives voted it product of the year 2009.

its people with closed minds that spread these rumours about software.
people who think they know something, but are misinformed or out of touch.
probs the same pathetic pricks who tell their friends not to buy a plasma TV cos it'll need re-gassing.

but whats the point of even posting antivirus deals on here cos it just ends up in a slagging match with someone saying the free ones are better.
if they were, the companies wouldnt need to offer a paid for version of the same product with more features.

argument works both ways..
if there wasnt sufficent products then everyone would have to buy the paid for versions or have infected pcs.. but seeing as we dont then it proves there are sufficent products..:whistling:..

I'm pretty sure I seen it in Tesco's Knocknagoney yesterday for £19.99...

Not 100% sure though...

crap!
the only reason there is free versions is to draw attention to the premium product.
otherwise why would they bother?
they'd just have the premium product available for free.
companies like AVG and Avast don't do a basic, cut down antivirus cos they like you!
its cos they want you to try it, like it and BUY the premium internet security.
its a marketing tool and if you think anything else, you're deluding yourself.
there are a few open source products, but any company making these softwares is out to make money and become the leader in their field.
they need revenue to further R&D and promote awareness of their product.
awareness is via the free limited feature versions.

lol,. i aint getting dragged into the same debate with the same person over and over evertime a thread comes up.. you keep buying your av if you think you cant protect yourself for free.. il use my hard earned £££ on things i really need.. ;-)
#25
The only reason Norton is on so many computers is because nearly every new prebuilt laptop/desktop tower has a Norton trial built in, which repeatedly nags the user to pay for it, and uninformed consumers get scared into buying it. I'm a computer technician and the majority of computers that are brought in full of viruses are using fully paid up versions of Norton or Mcafee because these are the same consumers that are stupid enough to download viruses.

norton ISNT a resource hog anymore at all..

Windows firewall is more than enough when behind a hardware firewall aswell, not sure what you're talking about with 'rats', viruses don't get magically on computers, they need some kind of user input to be ran.

its a marketing tool and if you think anything else, you're deluding yourself.


The premium version is just that, marketing, all superfluous 'features' which are unnecessary.

fair enough. I never said I paid for my security tho....I worked as a PC tech for a good few years being being made redundant, and I've still got a few friends that'll let me have the OEMs for nowt.
better than buying the boxed version or trying to endlessly update a cracked version!

I saw as many infected PCs with older versions of Norton as I did free AVG.
nothing is 100%, if what you've got works for you, fine but these endless egotistical arguments on here about paid for VS free internet securities shouldnt be allowed anymore by the mods.

anyone who wants to comment should say its a good deal or say they've seen it somewhere else cheaper.
any talk of an free alternative should be erased by a mod cos its just not constructive anymore

i love how when these threads come up people feel the need to inform us of there job, like it makes them more likely to be right or something..
you said a hardware and a software firewall is enough, but how is it??

maybe its enough if you never intend to turn the pc on and use it. but obvioulsy there is going to be some kind os user input which leads to downloading of viruses. (which having an av can protect most of the time, but even then crypted files etc can bypass them)

Yes like I said.. User input. Common sense is required alongside any anti virus software
#29
what about those who dont have common sense, and are not as PC literate as some?
do they deserve less protection?

if a company markets a product, they have put a lot of research and development into it, which costs money.
employees must be paid for their work.
so if the product is given away for free, how is the R&D funded and the employees paid?
adverts?

are all the features of a premium internet security un-needed?
surely thats a matter of opinion rather than fact.

but the fact is that if companies put out purely a premium AV product for free, they'd need income from elsewhere to fund the further development of the company.

a free AV is a sample product.
and to be honest, any PC tech reccomending a free product or collection of them over a full internet securitty suite, is probably just trolling for business.
but am sure the reply will be that anyone recommending a paid for suite is just about making a profit.
but since thats what BUSINESS is all about, then its a moot point.

why would you make a product free?
to raise awareness of the full version that does more.
thats why so many free AVs have a nag screen telling you to upgrade.

but again, this isnt a constructive argument, its one I have had pretty much every day with customers over the last 8 or so years.

when someone finds one they like, they tend to stick to it.
some of us are a bit more open minded and try a few other and read the reviews and see how things have come along since the last time we tried it.
I once had a horrendous job trying to work with F-Secure, but it was about 3 years ago now.
its probs improved since then.
whereas I feel since PC Cillin was rebranded to Trend Micro Security, they've become worse.

is this deal a good price for THIS PRODUCT?
yes or no
if no, say where you've seen it cheaper.
no one cares about your opinion of the product (in fact no one cares about my opinion of your opinions!)
I really wish the mods would step in and erase any posts not related to this product and its pricing

I never put this on here for a massive debate just thought it was the cheapest around for Norton, I'd like to know if anybody else can find it cheaper? Each person is to their own views so why all the cold rating....... :(

cos people are egotistical and think they know better.
Norton HAD a terrible rep but some people are unable to grasp the concept of change and keep an open mind

deals are not just about the price..

lets ignore the free alternative argument for a second at look at others.

kaspersky is usually offered on here for £5/£10 so is £30 for this product good?? No

were talking about paid for versions of both here so BOTH should have all these so called extras etc..
so its not just because people bash norton, i for one was impressed how much it had improved and would happily defend it but dont make it a good deal for £30.
#33
if its the Kaspersky with the free copy of Tune Up utilities included for cheaper, its a better deal.
but to someone preferring the norton software, its a good price.
its not about an alternative product
#34
I've no desire to engage in the argument over whether or not to use this product!
However, I'm sure I saw it on sale earlier today in Tescos at around £24.

I was sent off to look around the Electricals section so as my wife could get on with the serious job of doing some shopping without my interference so I wasn't paying particular attention but I did notice this item at around the £24 mark because it struck me then as being a good deal.
Might be worth someone checking out Tescos to confirm this price?
