Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Anyway, knowing of the problems with Norton, I started using other anti-virus software such as NOD32, BitDefender, Kaspersky and many others, until about three months ago when I started seeing positive reviews for Norton Products again. At that time, with very little confidence and not expecting much, I downloaded a trial version of Norton Internet Security since my Kaspersky license was set to expire. After installing NIS-2010, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it did NOT slow my operation down, was fairly easy to work with and did NOT take over my entire computer. By the end of the thirty day trial, I was convinced that Norton was back.
I confidently purchased a 12-month, 3-computer subscription from another on-line supplier and have been very happy ever since. Incidentally, Amazon now has it on sale for less than I paid the other 'supplier'. I installed it on three different computers running both Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro and hardly even know it's there - except of course when a threat is found. It scans when the computer is not being used and stops immediately when I start mousing or typing. It does update often but I can't tell you how many times per day because I never notice it happening. It helps me to avoid dangerous websites but if I really want to go to a blocked site, I can force it. It handles all of my website logins and passwords and allows me to easily manage them as well. The interface is slick and easy to work with. BTW, I did contact their tech support once and found them to be very helpful and knowledgeable.
As for the other reviewer, I'm not sure what the problem is but I will tell you this: Before installing any Anti-virus software, be 100% sure that your old anti-virus is completely removed/uninstalled from your computer - it is never a good thing for two different anti-virus programs to be running at the same time. Additionally, if your Windows operating system has been running on the same computer for more than three years or so, it's time for a complete reload whether or not Norton is involved. Windows can become very grumpy after years of use and the only fix is to wipe it clean then load it fresh - or better yet, install Windows 7.
Again, IMO, NORTON IS BACK!
Norton Internet Security 2010 1-User/3PC
Norton Utilities is a different package of features than the old SystemWorks, but it has all the essential elements. It fixes registry errors, cleans up the trash on your disk, and optimizes Windows registry. I miss the old "one button" cleanup step. But, this does everything that is needed and is reasonably easy to use.
This version of Norton antivirus/Internet security has the essentials - virus, Trojans, spyware, and is a password protection program. It doesn't seem to slow the machine too much and it isn't overly intrusive.
After the turkey "Norton 360" and the abandonment of "SystemWorks" Symantec finally got it right again.
I run windows 7 on two machines and have this on both.
Enought about that. Norton Internet Security has gotten much better (faster and less resource greedy) than it used to be. It also helps that it includes a dedicated uninstall utility. One reason I don't use McAfee any more is that I never could completely get rid of a 60-day trial version that came with one computer until I replaced the hard drive while doing a Windows 7 upgrade. Norton seems to work well, although it does get pushy sometimes trying to get me to use a feature I don't want. This bundle also came with Norton Utilities. Most of the things I use this for can be done with the system utilities in Windows 7, but it is convenient to have them in one spot, and to be able to schedule them to be done automatically. Altogether, I am satisfied with the product, and very happy with the vendor.
