I know some people dislike Norton but I have been using it for 20 years and never had a problem.

This looks like a good deal for 5 users, 1-year subscription - I paid more than this one year ago

Seems like a good price

or use free software

Sorry op but I wouldn't use Norton even if it was free.

lol..

Haha, you tried to post a deal for Norton, trust me it, Norton is hated on here more than a hedgehog in a condom factory.

Even if it was supplied with a free luxury jet it would still be voted cold, people here just don't like Norton, it got a bad reputation a few years ago and has never recovered.

I am one of those who came back to Norton and I have never had an issue, i must just be lucky.

I saw someone on Boxing day buy this from Argos. I was almost tempted to stop them but na, if they were stupid enough to buy it then tough

I gave up on Norton many years ago due to it slowing down my 386 PC to a grinding halt, despite the PC having a maths co-processor fitted. Norton Security has since improved and has not given me a problem since I started using it again about seven years ago. A five-machine licence for £19 along with the piece of mind it brings does it for me. I shall get this deal and use it in 117 days time, when the existing licence has expired.
Thanks for posting. Heat added.

Norton lmao
You could buy a £2k Alienware i7 beast and north would slow it down to a grinding halt wishing seconds.

Always lots of misinformation on Norton AV threads from those who only know the Norton products from the early 2000's....Norton did get very bad and its reputation was tainted badly.

However the product was totally rewritten around 2009 based on the Symantec Endpoint corporate product (which has always been very good)

So nothing wrong with Norton AV nowadays, If your into paying for AV (which I'm not personally) you could do far worse

If you're paying out, most people don't need to, get Webroot, exceptionally lightweight and will play happy if you also use something like Malwarebytes.

From PC Mag - Best Anti-Virus 2017 "After a few years on hiatus, Symantec's standalone antivirus is back. Norton AntiVirus Basic earns top scores from the independent labs and in our own tests. It's a winner. "

I think some people still go back to 2000 when looking at Anti Virus packages - Norton has moved on to be PC mag editors choice

So if "most don't need to" then you must believe some do. That suggests Norton does stuff that Webroot doesn't. As you have made these claims can you explain what's the difference (other than price) between the two?

We should always trust the opinion of someone who doesn't notice their auto-correct is messing up their post.

I saw somebody buying Yankee Candles over Christmas and felt the same - if they were stupid enough to buy them why stop them - a post is a post

I'm guessing this is a quote. It's is clear though that either they are exaggerating or they are a moron.

Webroot is cloud based as opposed to traditional downloading of definitions and runs with a tiny memory footprint. Ideal for the average online user who doesn't require/need souped up suites nor dabbles with pirated software or the darker regions of the web. For others I'd go for Avira Free or Bitdefender Free backed with some sort of anti-malware.

Norton was always too bloated and clunky for my liking, it used to bury itself in your system making it an absolute pain to remove. If it has drastically improved in the decade+ since I last used it then fair enough. Personally I've never found many fans of it, certainly few and far between in the security realm.

New reworked Norton is totally different beast. I got 3.0 standard version free with Atom tab/convertible and I'm really impressed with its small footprint. Personally I use Kaspersky due to its little bit better detection rate (plus free with my bank account) but I have to give credit to Symantec for all the improvements they done.

Used to use kasperky when I got it free with banking with Barclays. Now use bullguard which is awesome imho and can get it for less than £20 for 3 pc'S which I am happy to pay
