Good price, but I do nto know of a single PC security expert who recommends this ot McAfee (resource hogs). Have a look at AVG for a good free anti virus software. (from Grisoft, and no, I do not have shares with them)

yep, forget to mention AVG, or even Kaspersky.

The 2009 Norton products use 20 MB of RAM, if not less for the lower packages. AVG uses 75+ MB and slowed the last PC I installed it on down to hell.

Norton has changed a lot this year - the products are actually recommendable.

TRUE, anything diffrent than Norton 2009 is crap!Thats true, but Norton 2009 is a different story! I used to have AVG for ages, now I use 90 days Norton Antivirus 2009! 10/10 points, try this always you can delete!

symantecstore.com/dr/…172

or search for norton 2009 90 days trial

or to buy kikatek.com/pro…gle but you must add a postage..

It pains me to say it, but Norton 2009 is actually a competitive product. Detection rates and RAM hogging are as good as anything on the market.
I would never pay for AV though

Why do people still pay for domestic AV software anyway?

Because a lot of "casual" PC users prefer to have ONE security solution that offers Antivirus, Antispyware,Firewall, Antispam etc and not have the hassle of downloading and maintaining several "free" pieces of software to do the same job.

As far as I know there is not a free complete security package that offers the same protection as Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky etc.

I do not regard installing AVG by itself as sufficient security against the threats out there today

My McAfee has just expired and was looking for a good deal on AV software and this seems a good deal.
My issue is that my McAfee didnt seem to run properly and I was told it was because I had Windows Vista. I've also been told before that Norton doesnt work well with windows vista either and that you have to aquire special updates for it to run with Vista.
Is this the case? Are there any AV's out there that are windows vista compatible?
If I purchased the Norton AV are the upgrades for Vista free?
Any help here would be great.

No it's utter ******** like most Vista myths.

Take the CD install it - it works fine. Obviously you should update your antivirus for the latest definitions but it does this automatically and you need to do it regardless of your OS.

Norton and Avast definately work fine on Vista - but I can't see any of the other big name players having any issues.

In short - you don't need any "upgrades" to make it work. You pay your £18.97, install the software and you get a years protection.

I would recommend buying this, NOT OPENING it, then downloading the 90 day trial from the website. If you like the software - great, use your 90 days then use the code from inside the box. If you dont like it - return it still sealed under the DSR's.

Thanks mate.
Think I'll purchase it and get the 90 days trial. Seems like a good price even though it's getting voted cold I've heard good reports about Norton 2009.
Some rep. :thumbsup:

True, but how hard is it to download spybot, Avast and Peergaurdian? It's like five minutes work. *Other secuity software is available.

I will never forget my bad experience with Norton AV. Once bitten and all... Too little too late for me I'm afraid.

I like norton actually. Its easy for new pc users too, just install it, and off you go. its easy for me too :oops: this is only one user though, i could swear my brother got it for about £19 for 3 users aas he stuck it on his pc, and i stuck it on my laptop too
