I spotted this deal whilst browsing online for an anti virus package, I managed to find the product around £1 - £2 cheaper on a few other sites but none of which were overly reputable or were download only.

I rang my local branch and they had it instore for the same price so a bargain for those who like to shop online and those who prefer to visit the highstreet,

"Norton Internet Security 2009 protects your computer, your identity and your home network without slowing you down.

Network security helps you secure your home network and stay safe when connecting wirelessly. This is one of the most comprehensive Norton security packages available and with it allowing you to protect up to 3 computers per household for up to a year can you afford be without it. "

You should print out this Smith's voucher to get it for £19.99, like I did!

price £0, saving £24.99

Original Poster

I was running with AVG but i kept having problems with viruses and spywear which is why i decided to give a bigger brand a go and since my house has a pc and 2 laptops i figured this seemed like a good deal as it worked out at £8.30 ish for a years worth of protection for each,

Though I know a lot of people who hate Norton products, I have to say that the 2009 version is so much easier to use and much, much lighter on computer resources than previous versions. I got it at Amazon for £21.99 in the winter sale but its more expensive now, so £24.99 is not a bad price, especially instore. If you are just after the Norton anti-virus/spyware then you can get a 3 computer edition for £19.45 at PC World. pcworld.co.uk/mar…242

I use Avast also free

avast.com

And if you want a firewall i recomend Zone Alarm also free

Awful product, there's plenty of free AV/firewalls out there there Clamwin which can also be used on servers (if you have one in the house like me!)
clamwin.com/

I swear buy Kaspersky and at £10 for a 3user license you can't go wrong, much less of a footprint and system hog than Norton:-

Voted hot..

yes..some people out there hate Norton, however from running a small business where you need the addtional comfirmation your using aknow product its a good buy in my eyes.

Having used Norton products for many years, I tried Kaspersky from Barclays this year...and removed it after about 3 weeks, although I don't doubt it was doing it's job - it never really gave the satisfaction that it was (if that makes sense?) and it also caused my PC and the lappy to crash on several occaisions.
So I took the plunge and returned to Norton this week - and must say that i'm very pleasently surprised - it has been incredibly slimmed down this year and is also really light on resources.

I for one havent been a fan of Norton, but I have heard reviews about it having improved bigtime. I personally use AVG but that isnt 100% foolproof. I also use malwarebytes, one of the best, if not the best anti spyware and Commodo firewall. I dislike Zone Alarm cos of the problems it caused me. (all this my opinion). All the s/w I use are all freebies

It seems the best antivirus around is ESET Nod32 and actually Norton is comparative to this as it picked up on all the viruses. Microsoft OneCare came in last.

Nowadays, any Norton post always gets cold because of past comments. Maybe thats a bit unfair now, I dunno.

The new Norton may be better than the old versions but the I.T. department where I work has gone over to ESET NOD32 as it is far better and a much lower drain on the PCs resources than the new Norton which is definately NOT comparable.

bought this yesterday, like norton, hot!

It wouldn't be as Norton is a home user product not a corporate product ;-) your not comparing like for like.

Symantec's corporate edition is very very good and nothing like the Norton home user vesion.

Norton 2009 is a massive improvment and probably the best Norton AV product since Norton V5 about 8-10 years ago.

AVG is one to avoid now as it misses a lot of viruses as has been reported many times lately on other AV threads.

Go with Avast or Avira

thats just the AV component.

I Have Eset Smart Security "which includes Nod32 AV" on 2 of my PCs and will be switching to something else once my licence expires.

I download quite a lot of files and so want to be fairly sure my AV will pick up threats. After installing ESET and updating to latest definitions I purposefully downloaded some 2 week old dodgy items from Usenet “listed as movies but actually a 48k .exe file Etc.”

Nod32 checked and passed them all and would happily of allowed me to run them and infect my machine, I took them for a visit to the Kasperski online checker which reported 2 Trojans and 1 malware installer amongst the samples.

I then used the Nod32 submit a file system to let them have copies of the 3 files and it took them 8 days to include these files in its definitions and then detect them in the folder I had left them in on my system.

Needless to say, as the Trojans where already a couple of weeks old and then it took Nod32 another 8 days to get them added to its definitions “and then only because I submitted them” I figure I cannot rely on it and will be switching to something better at identifying malware.

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.
