Norton Antivirus 2014 6 Month Trial License

Found 20th Mar 2014
6 month "trial" license for Norton Antivirus 2014. I know the majority will vote this cold but thought i'd post it anyway as personally I rate Norton products. It's light and does the job.

this freebie is really an extended trial of Norton AntiVirus 2014 instead of an actual license. In terms of features and protections, there are no differences between a trial and a real license -- you get all the same features, updates, and protection. The difference arises in who can install it. If you have used Norton AntiVirus 2014 in the past, then you might not be able to install an extended trial and thus won't be able to get this freebie. (If you haven't used Norton AntiVirus 2014 in the past, then you can get this freebie.)

Not at all, it's an extremely light weight antivirus and does a good job. Long gone have the days of the slow Norton products

I use Microsoft security essentials and its free. Haven't got a virus in years but then again I think this is got to do with the sites you use.

Sorry it is bloatware, it fills your registry and system with a lot of unrequired files, they also charge for it. Awful program in my opinion.

Try avast if you want a lightweight free av program. It just sits there quietly doing its job.

Each to their own but it isn't bloatware. If you check system resources you would see how little Norton AV uses, it doesn't fill the registry and system with unrequired files at all

yuk, wouldn't touch it with a barge pole

Avast + COMODO firewall = sorted 4 free

Try uninstalling it then you will see how much is left behind when you run a registry cleaner. It's renowned for being bloatware, just google bloatware and norton. As you say, each to their own.

I maintain 250+ computers currently running Symantec and Norton software, it leaves very little registry trace when uninstalled and from 2009 onwards it was totally rewritten using a different engine and update method with a far improved performance and stability. I throw viruses, malware snd exploits to test many av softwares so know what i'm talking about. I could post an uninstalled registry trace for you, you might be surprised to see that Avast actually leaves more registry entries behind

Mr Norton must be laughing all the way to the bank. Funny how they actually need a tool to remove all the junk it leaves behind as well. I will concede that Norton may have improved but once bitten twice shy, mud sticks.

The majority of antivirus software manufacturers have a tool available for removing their software, usually only required in extreme cases. I think the point here is that you don't like Norton software, fair enough

Well I haven't had it on a system for about 15 years to be fair, I think they are a rip off, you can get better lighter service for free. I have many painful memories of Norton screwing up systems in the 90s, even getting virus infected while running it.

I started using Avast because it was recommended by the once great but now paper thin magazine PC Format, and I use it on all my systems and several family and friends systems and no one ever gets any trouble with it, and it's free and easy to install and remove. Mcafee is just as bad as Norton and I suspect so is Kaspersky.

In my experience these paid for systems are used only by people that have been conned into paying for AV because they don't know better otherwise, or companies that have been sold it on the advice of over certified IT people because its sold as an overall licensed protection system for their networks.

Real "old school" gamers, coders, pc nerds, pc modders / makers you know people that live on pc's wouldn't go near antivirus such as this in my world anyway.

As long as your happy with it, that's all that matters thought right..

I also rate spybot s+d, ghostery, malwarebytes, even mse. I tried AVG but had problems with it so gave up on that.

I agree. Norton is like an octopus with tentacles everywhere slowly suffocating your
