Just bought Norton Internet Security 2009 for £5 from TESCO Broughton Road, Edinburgh.

It was kept along with other low priced DVDs (not the new releases section).

Don't know if its all over or just store specific.

pretty good deal considering you can download NIS 2010 and use the license key on the updated software.

May be a good price but can't vote hot as such a shockingly bad product. Go for one of the free AV products.

Steven, you have surprisingly large breast for a man; is it a genetic condition?

Its Norton though the AV side isn't bad but it takes all your resources up and interferes with every aspect of your computer. A customer has just collected his computer from me and Norton had screwed it up royally, checkDisc was stuck in a endless cycle because Norton had removed a piece of software that it deemed a risk i reinstalled XP and installed his Norton again and 2 seconds later the OS latched up and wouldn't respond. After a reboot before the AV was loaded the mouse and keyboard worked as soon as Norton came on same situation latching up. Needless to say removed and replaced alls now fine.

Have to admit that I've used Norton for 6 out of the past 7 years with absolutely no problems whatsoever.

iNb4 the Norton haters....oops too late!

As usual this'll get voted into oblivion as the usual anti-Norton crowd vote cold, despite the fact the last few versions are actually quite good, and pretty lightweight...check any of the latest reviews. Free doesn't always mean better...

Voted hot

The Norton Haters are the people that used it 5-8 years ago when it WAS resource hungry and terrible. The past couple of years they have improved dramatically.

I have Kaspersky which I am very happy with, especially as it comes free for barclays customers, but i'd happily use the latest NIS such as the one i installed recently on my mothers laptop.

If it's so bad then how come it's won vitually all the awards from independent tests this year, beating the likes of Kaspersky and McAffee? And it certainly is much more useful and more secure than the free stuff on offer.

AVG etc are free for a reason........................

Voted hot on this deal for this AV at the cheapest price, which is what this site is for, or least it used to be!

It is not a resource hog like it used to be, i have used it on and off for 10 years and the last 3 years in a row and it is good, but this will never get hot as people think a free program is better then norton because its Norton!!

The problem is that Norton has killed many good security programs (Sygate is one example) while they didn't come up with a comparable or better program themselves. I believe this has destroyed their reputation a lot and it is very difficult to get back on top, once you've messed up.

Today virtually all big banks and large internet companies including Microsoft have recognised that, unless everybody has good security, we all are at risk. This is why they give away good security programs (e.g. Barclays provides Kaspersky to their customers, Microsoft provides Secrurity Essential for free, etc.).

Free programs are therefore as effective as paid-for security. Some paid-for programs offer some additional features, which are more for convenience than security.

There is no program, which provides 100% security.
Therefore use common sense when you respond to dodgy emails, etc.

This is a great price, presumably because it's 2009, but as stated above you can upgrade to the latest version free. If you don't like Norton OK, but it's a hot deal for the product.

Yep, I've read that Norton has greatly improved, Kaspersky on the other hand seems to have gone in the opposite direction. Kaspersky 2011, slowed my PC quite noticeably, and on top of that rendered the USB ports non-functional - required booting in safemode and running kavremover to get USB functioning again

I would never buy a Norton product again.
I have Norton 2010 on my PC at work, its always doing something.....never again.
All I need to do is get rid of the bloody thing which is easier said than done!

Norton IS is always working in the backgrund to provide security protection. Generally it uses a miniscule % of CPU and its only going to be an issue with a very old PC. I have used Norton for circa 10 years and the the 2008-2010 range are major improvements. I was given Kaspersky free with my new laptop but I replaced it with Norton IS 2010 as its a lot better in my opinion. Very hot for the price.

All the norton haters need to try a version that's less than 5 years old....

I admit, in the days of windows 95 and 98, norton was a total horror-show, inefficient, slow, messd up all sorts of programs....

These days it's a different story, ever since the big redesign (norton actually paying attention to users demands) it has become far less intrusive and far more compatible, I've not had to manually alter a firewall setting for my xbox or p2p since the 2008/2009 version which i ahd to do all the time, I've not had a single virus infection....

For £1.66 per PC its at least worth a go to see for yourself if the updates are as good as everyone says, I guarentee you'll be impressed from the super-speedy install to lack of interference once it's there, plus the outlook integrated antispam is miles better than any free alternative ive ever found.

your wasting your time posting any Antivirus software on here m8 , it just gets filled up with wanna be know it all that really no nothing , this time its all the Norton haters that remembering it getting slaughtered on forums years ago and think they sound " techy "posting 5 year old comments ,

nothing wrong with norton nowadays if your looking for that extrta bit of security , if not Microsoft Security Essentials and the Windows 7 firewall along with Windows 7 Firewall Control will be good enough for most users sphinx-soft.com/Vis…tml

I've tried them all and I keep coming back to Norton.

Fantastic price if just for my next renewal.

norton is the work of the devil, alongside 720p tvs and anything without a free million year warranty

I was always a McAfee man but I have moved over to Norton since they introduced 2009. It is no longer resouce greedy slowing everything down. It takes a couple of minutes to install rather than the 10 minutes-plus Mcafee takes. I have both McAfee and Norton intalled on various computers. The old Norton was a pain in the butt but this one is a cracker. Don't take my word for it, just read the proffessional reviews. Pinnman (computer engineer).

any free security sites?
