only £19.99 here for the FULL 2009 suite.

Worthless IMHO though as better stuff out there for free. I wouldnt put this filthware on my PC even if someone paid me.

You should be able to, yes. As long as you dont use the code until your current subscription expires then you will be able to run it on from June for another year.

Avast is better, and free.

You shold be able to purchace now and use when yours expires. I use an alternative AV and I always purchace early when discounts are on for future use.

Ensure yours expires prior to activating as I found it didn't add onto my current subscription and lost 2 months updates

This will get cold because it is Norton. However PC Pro says...

"Verdict: Believe the hype - Symantec's latest offering is lighter than ever and an extremely effective security package...

The first thing you need to know about Norton Internet Security (NIS) 2009 is that it's fast. Symantec has spent years working to shed its reputation for sluggish software, and its latest effort sets new standards for responsiveness. Click on the System Tray icon and the main interface leaps up in a fraction of a second.

We used a bare Vista system that took 35 seconds to boot to an idle desktop, with memory usage of 475MB. Installing Norton increased boot time by just six seconds, and raised the RAM footprint by a mere 22MB. Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 eats 15MB more."

But, 'cos of past experiences I won't use Norton again. It is harder to get off your computer than most viruses.

And, as already pointed out there are better deals about.

Thanks for your help. I know some people dont like norton but I aint had no problems so wont be switching

AVG will "seem to be all you need" until you put on Avast or Avira only to find you have had viruses on your pc for months. AVG is rubbish these days.

But then, 15MB was an important amount ten years ago, but today, when you can buy 4GB for £40, it's means squat. What is important is the addition to the boottime, and the general slowness it inflicts upon your system, plus the time of yours the software wastes with its pointless prompts and notifications, which PC Pro seems not to have mentioned. If there was a Norton advert a few pages later, this might explain why.

Anyway, Norton still suffers from poor protection rates and is overpriced, so it's rubbish.

Why pay for it when an effective alternative is available for free? BRRR it is cold in here.

as soon as i saw the title I knew you'd be in negative territory. There are so many 'experts' on here - if you can read through every comment (and stay awake) they'll all tell you something else is better - and of course all the recommendations are for different products.
What does this tell you? Like biscuits there are different packages and it's all subjective - you may love kitkats i may hate them - but i wouldn't neg kit cats for that reason, but on here the computer 'experts' see it as their right.
I would point out that there are super deals available, I use norton internet security myself (2009) and it's absoultely fine (as many others are). target price for me was under £15 delivered, which I'm very happy with.
don't let the negative comments and votes put you off putting up other deals, there are some rational folk on here too

just why do the norton fans get all protective? Maybe to justify the money they wasted lol ;-)

if you are going to pay for AV then get nod32... if you want a free one get avast.

get spybot S&D too!

norton sucks

Thanks dude :-D I've been (seems a bit wrongly) relying on AVG free....... may look for Avast now :thumbsup:

i cant stand norton no matter the price. it slows down your system and once installed you cant get rid of it.

if youre looking for a virtually invisible antivirus try NOD32.

See, what you're doing there is rating your own limited personal experience above the knowledge of someone who actually cares enough about a subject to look into it, and find out what genuinely is the best option. The phrase "ignorance is bliss" springs to mind.

Anyway, Norton sucks because you might have viruses on your system that you don't even know are there, because Norton is one of the poorest AV apps at picking up viruses that are out and that are known, and is useless at detecting viruses that aren't known. You're not really all that protected with Norton, so how does that justify spending £20?

Before you slate Norton 2009 have you actually used it?

I challenge anyone to download their latest offering (for free of course – 90 day trial) and to find any of the faults previous posters have mentioned.

It does not bloat the system in any way at all, and when it detects the computer is idle, all of its background processes are carried out.

I used to absolutely hate Norton products also, but I recently (Jan. 09) installed Vista Ultimate on my laptop, and did a bit of research into an antivirus program.

I previously had AVG, but after reading some reviews found it had a poor detection rate compared to others. So I tried Avira, but didn’t like it, and Norton 2009 had received some glowing reports so I thought why not?? And I can tell you it is great!

So please before you comment on how this particular Norton product is rubbish please give reasons as to why.

different people have different opinions. Why dont you look at these tests done by these guys av-comparatives.org/ Have a look at their findings and see for yourself if Norton really is poor etc.

People slagging off Norton (like I used to) should be talking from past experiences but they have improved their s/w a lot. I have heard good reviews now. I have also used Kaspersky, few years ago now and found it too intrusive and cpu hungry so got rid of it! Not sure which was worse, Kaspersky or Norton, lol.

I will be moving to eset nod32 soon as that is supposed to be top notch #1, currently use Avast on laptop and AVG on desktop, Both have their merits. It surprised me a little when I first checked the av-comparatives that avg wasnt as good as I thought. Avast proved to be better than AVG!

For firewall I used to use Zone Alarm but had problems with usage. Moved to Sygate after, which is very good but not good in terms of customising, currently use Comodo.

For spyware, the best Ive found so far is malware bytes. Check that out, its very good and far better than what I used to use in AVG antispyware, spybot and ad-ware

Blimey! I installed Kaspersky Internet Suite 2009 (free from barclays) a few weeks ago and haven't seen a pop-up or anything since. Uses 5MB of RAM and never goes above 1% CPU!

If you genuinely believe that Norton is a useful and good product, will you put your faith in it and run an EXE I could write for you?

Had to delete mines after a month because it was utter rubbish, total waste of money,better getting avg for nothing.

I found previous versions of Norton too big and slow. I also found it difficult to wipe all traces of it when I wanted to. In fairness though, it did stop viruses and it didn’t give false alarms.

I now use one of the free alternatives that are so acclaimed by Norton haters. It has however, let some viruses through and given a some of false alarms.

I’m prepared to accept that the latest version of Norton is smaller and faster but I’d like to ask those that have experience of it –
1. Does it find every thing that it should without giving false alarms?
2. Does it litter your PC with various files that remain after you’ve uninstalled it?

Care to share what AV you had before Mcafee that allowed the viruses on in the first place.

Also, the AV software that found the viruses that Mcafee didnt.............

BTW, Avast for Free or Kaspersky for those with too much money ;-)
