don't be mislead by the 3PC on the box Dec 19 2011
By APRIL - Published on
Verified Purchase
I love norton. I buy about 10 copies a year because I have a lot of computers. I was a bit mislead by this box, 1 user 3 pcs. I thought I could install it on 3 pcs in my home and it would run for a year on each pc. well, it does not. My antivirus protection on my computers expires at different times. I just realized that when you install on the 2nd and 3rd computer, it only allows you the time left on the first computer, which to me, should be clearly advertised on the box, which I could not see it anywhere. I would have bought the other option of it, where they send you 3 discs. I did not realize it was this way.

Sluggish Resource Hog Dec 27 2011
By SmokeRingHalo - Published on
Verified Purchase
I had switched to Norton back in 2009 when they started getting positive reviews for keeping resource usage at a minimum. I haven't had any real complaints with it until this 2012 version. Ever since installing it my computer runs sluggish & found it was Norton (ccSvcHst.exe) eating up 88% of my CPU just idling, it wasn't even scanning! Norton is quick to report other applications with resource usage but doesn't report itself. I cannot in good conscious recommend this product until they fix this issue & go back to using minimum resources as they did in 2009-2011.

When we had Internet Security and 360, we never used any of their features. Antivirus is all you need. Installed easily and works behind the scenes.

Great but CAVEAT Dec 4 2011
By Telecaster - Published on
Verified Purchase
Having three computers this was a no brainer compared to the $44 ea for online renewal. BEWARE however that if you currently have Norton with different expiration dates for your computers you cannot update each one as they expire and get the full year from that date. The 1 yr clock clock starts after you enroll the first computer. Still it may be much cheaper to do all at the same time for the great savings over online renewal. BTW Norton customer service was excellent in doing the updates on all 3 computers for me as a somewhat novice. The last 2 times I have contacted them I received excellent and prompt customer care. Be sure to register your products online and create an account with them so you can get to free customer service easier and they will have all the product key codes in your file for the future, or if your hard drive crashes and you need to re-install (which they did for me quickly recently). I don't know why the other reviewer is squawking about a 10 day trial rip-off, that is not true at all. This is for a full year for three computers. I have used Norton for many years and the current versions are much improved and take up less resources than in the past. Excellent product.

Don't buy this product unless you want endless headaches! March 14 2012
By Greg S - Published on
Verified Purchase
Long ago I used Norton and had performance issues. Thanks to a PC World recommendation, I decided to once again give Norton a try. It did a great job of protecting my computer in the one month I used it.

BUT...I have a tuner card to watch TV. I also have a wireless printer. Neither of these devices worked reliably in the time I had this product installed. Tech support for my tuner card basically said, Norton will not play nice with your set up.

Okay, not a big deal. Just uninstall, and go with what the manufacturer recommends.

Yea, here I am 20 hours into trying to uninstall this product. Every time I uninstall, Blue Screen of Death. I am an advanced computer user and I can tell you I have never had such difficulty removing a program. Even with the so-called Norton removal programs, I cannot get my system to cooperate. I am on my laptop typing this review as I am now doing a complete re-install of Windows 7 on my Desktop. This means many more hours of work thanks to Norton Antivirus 2012.

If you want that in your future, go with this product. Otherwise, I'd pick something else.

Sorry Norton, but time to fix your product!
