In my opinion, for a Norton product, free wouldnt be cheap enough.

Nevertheless, if you want to buy this product and are a CostCo member, this is a hot deal.

you are spot on! its cheaper to get free antivirus but if somebody wants norton this is a great deal!

Awful software, and not really a bargain when Microsoft Security Essentials is better and free!

Yep - good price for Norton - can also be found under a google search for "take over my machine and stop everything from working properly" for about the same price

Avast or AVG free should cover it (avast is currently running 'Pirate English' which hasn't become tiresome just yet).

crap product but good price...

+1.

Neutral from me. Avast is wonderful and free

Norton Internet Security is good software, it is NOT a resource hog like previous versions. It really WAS in the past, but it is now light, scans are lightning fast, and I personally have had no major issues whilst using it. The single most important thing when it comes to security software is personal choice. Try them all and pick one that works for you. You should be voting whether it is a good price for the product, not whether you think the product is any good. The product key will offer a twelve month license for the latest version (2011.) How many of the cold voters have actually used this version?

Microsoft Security Essentials - best AV, £0.00. Nuff said.

Norton is no longer the resource hogging software it used to be and this is a cheap price for it compared to rrp it gets sold for.. would happily use it nowdays but its still not cheap enough to make me want to buy it..

Cold.
Cheaper ways of slowing down my laptop

It's for 3 Pc's as well.

Good price and good software

Microsoft Essentials is surely fantastic but if you want any paid for user friendly antivirus and firewall, nothing can beat Norton Internet Security. Excellent price too.

I've lost count of the number of times I've uninstalled Norton from computers!

The Works do Kaspersky 2009 for 5 computers for £5.99.

dont install the software, just download the 2011 version from the Kaspersky website ( not the trial version) and use the 2009 number serial number.

Come on , is this cheap or not...I know you guys hate Norton , but...its really good product..It does capture viruses, on a ratio AVG , its light years ahead in doing that. I know we are in the Open Source on everything...but its a great product.....Voting Hot...

MSE and Avast Free Home Edition running together will give you great protection. Why pay for this bloatware crap.

Voted Cold!

It's such a shame that people are never prepared for a company to listen to its critics and change. This software is genuinely top class and as a self-confessed hater of Norton products in the past I'm glad to have seen the light...

find a bad professional review of Norton 2010 and then come back here and post it.

you people are a bunch of SHEEP. AVG free is a limited basic security product and not even in the same league.
I've lost count of the amount of infected PCs I've dealt with that had AVG free on.
plus almost every virus related post on here is from an AVG/Avast or Avira free user.

what does that tell you?

So you advise running 2 anti viruses at same time..lol..

He meant MoneySavingExpert. Obviously. ;-)

microsoft security essentials is good if you dont want to spend anything, but i think Norton has improved a lot in recent years, and is now the best of the paid-for security suites in terms of useability and a high level of protection.
if this is for a 3-user licence then it is a decent price
check the test results here to see that Norton does offer better protection against malware than MSE:

Well its better than running **** like norton. MSE and Avast give you the best of both worlds whilst **** like Norton hogs and slows down your PC.

prove it!

find a review from an online PC mag or some such that states that Norton 2010 slows down your PC and isn't recommended.

you won't find one.

Clue: Magazine reviewers tend not to use old machines with 512mb of memory.

That said, AVG 9.0 it utterly horrendous, really really bad. Not only that it has a poor detection database but that it is incredibly slow far worse then Norton.

Seriously, if your machine, with XP has 512mb or less you must use Avira, the same for Vista for 1gb or less.

Avast is a good all round anti virus, certainly no worse then norton, mcafee etc. But, we must all remember, that *non* of these products will stop the most common type of infections which invade the net.

The bogus anti virus products and their associated rootkits seem entirely immune to any and all the anti virus software out there.

At least with Avast and Avira, you didnt get scammed out of £50 to find out that your anti virus is unable to protect you.

Norton is the equivalent of these nigerian scammers, norton takes your money and gives you **** all in return. Norton sucks and we all know it. Whats the matter slackrat77 do you have shares in Norton.

surely this site is about good deals on certain products? if so then this is a hot deal unless somebody can show me where to get it cheaper. if people want to use free or different software then thats up to them, but for people who want norton and have a costco membership, this is a good deal!

running them both together makes them conflict with each other you idiot ...honestly you guys on hear dont have a clue .......norton is the best av going, your just all too greedy to pay the price for real protection ,,anyway good price if its for 3pcs !!!!!

no i dont have shares in Norton, but I've kept an open mind, as all PC techs should.
if something is suddenly getting great reviews, its worth checking out to see if its changed since the last time you tried it.
cos things can and do change, sometimes for the better, like Norton and sometimes for the worse, like Bitdefender and AVG.

I was using Norton 360V4 and it was using 8mb of RAM on my machine.
less than my logitech keyboard software.

if people bothered to try these things out before slagging them off...

Norton 2010 won product of the year 2009 on AV-Comparatives.org website.
beating Kaspersky and Eset (2nd and 3rd places) aswell as AVG, MCafee and various others.

this speaks volumes about the improvement in Norton's products since the 2009 rebuild.

I'll take their opinions and findings over the ill-informed users of this web site's.

Am currently using Kaspersky 2011 cos I got a free copy from a rep at work and right now its using between 12-23mb of ram for its 2 processes.
Norton is lighter.
Edited by: "slackrat77" 23rd Sep 2010

i switched from norton to kaspersky recently because i got a free copy of kaspersky, and also found norton to be lighter (tho kaspersky is also fine). If you look at the link I posted above you will see that Mcafee and Trend both failed to get a certificate because of poor protection, so avoid those.

i'm not sure why people are getting so bad-tempered. norton used to be pretty bad but now is actually very good as an internet security suite.

there's nothing wrong with free anti-virus if you know what you are doing, but for most people i think it's a good idea to run a suite from one software provider as it avoids any possible complications. if you dont want to pay i would use the one from microsoft, if you want a a little bit higher level of protection then Norton is a good choice.

Two things I don't like about Norton are:
1. the cost of renewing a licence is at least double what you can pay for buying the whole DVD (with ridiculous packaging). Of course you can just buy it again and enter the licence from the box, but it **** me off that they try to rip-off loyal customers in this way.
2. if you uninstall it it leaves bits behind

Have some heat- I use Norton (previous advocate of free) but for conflict free protection with extras that just works this is great!

agreed about the cost of renewal on Norton, its often cheaper to find a deal like this near the time you're looking to renew and buy a brand new copy.

Never found anything major left behind from the uninstall.
most software leaves traces left behind, even if its just an empty folder in prog files.

agree with the cost of renewal is a rip off ,, i buy oem version each year and just uninstall then reinstall costs me £11 a year which aint bad at all
