Let's be clear this is a good product when it's working. It would be worrying if in terms of functionality a product from a company as dominant in the market as Norton could not achieve a 4/5 star review. However when you part with your cash for this product you are also purchasing an entitlement to technical support and the quality of this should also be a consideration.

My specific problem was that my Norton 360 2.0 started showing a message that I needed to activate it despite the fact that it had been running for almost a year and still had a month to run on the subscription. When following the activation procedure it told me that it couldn't activate. This problem was not solved by Norton technical support and in attempting to address this by trying to remotely install Norton 360 3.0 they left me in worse position than I had been.

Over a sequence of three evenings totalling about 7 hours of support they not only failed to install Norton 360 3.0 but also wrecked my internet connection in the process so that I couldn't get on line. Despite me telling them repeatedly that the connection problem was due to something they had done their technicians kept attempting to pass the buck to the internet provider as though this was an unrelated, coincidental problem. In one of their last attempts to solve the problem Norton remotely tried to uninstall bits of Norton 360 and asked me to manually delete and rename Norton files. As consequence I was no longer able to use the usual uninstall process or delete any Norton files after this because various names and pathways had been changed. Therefore even though my strong hunch was that it was the residual elements of Norton that were messing up my connection I could do nothing about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A big improvement over V2 12 May 2009
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I like it. I've tried a number of security suites, including Norton Internet Security 2009, and this is probably my favourite. Norton products were getting very flabby until NIS 2009 came along, and V3 of Norton 360 seems to have built very effectively on the performance enhancements found in NIS 2009. It doesn't seem to increase boot times and uses very little memory or cpu after booting.

I'm not in a position to test its effectiveness at keeping nasties at bay, but NIS2009 gets top billing in many magazine reviews. 360 adds a number of features over NIS, for example integrating with your browser to warn you if you're on a suspect e-commerce site.

It also has what appears to be an excellent backup utility, although I'll probably stick with Acronis for local and iDrive (12 GB free) for online backups.

The only downside I could find is that the interface is poor for anybody who wants to get their hands dirty, delving into the depths to adjust the more advanced settings. But, for most people, that will be a good thing, and I reckon Norton 360 V3 will suit their needs admirably.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but... 19 April 2009
By marcoscu TOP 500 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
After experimenting with various Symantec security products over the years and finding that they all without exception slowed my machine down to a crawl I swore I mighty oath I would never install another. I soon broke that vow when I tried and was very impressed by Norton Internet Security 2009 - 1 User 3 Computers (PC), which was fast, stable and did not impinge very much upon my PC's performance. So I was particularly keen to give this new version of Norton 360 a go.

The install on my Vista SP1 laptop was fast and incident free and the application was quickly registered. Once booted up the computer seemed to work well and not noticeably slower than before. I did note a possible slow down in accessing web pages, but this may not be the direct result of N360 and if it is I suspect a tweak of the security settings (set to maximum) could cure this.

The interface is stripped down and far more user friendly than the confused interface of NIS2009 but there are a full range of options available if you choose to delve into the menu structure. The default settings are fine for most people, I suspect.

Like many new security product this one comes with 2 gigabytes of online storage - I am not sure if this is to be shared between the three users of this product or if each of the three included licences has it's own.

One problem I found is that the backup routine seems to be tightly woven into the disk cleaning and security monitoring schedule and I found it difficult to set up a scheduled scan without including a backup. I also found the setup routine for defining the backup parameters to be confusing and poorly designed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid update 11 May 2009
By S Finnerty VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Upgraded my PCs from V2.5 360 to Norton's latest security suite V3.0. The earlier version did slow system performance and was fiddly to configure. V3 is an improvement in these areas being much less resource hungry and much simpler to control.

Norton 360 provides firewall, anti-virus, anti phishing, PC tuning tools, and 2G of online backup. The firewall and anti-virus work quietly in the background when configured. The PC tuning tools are basic but run in the background and do not seem to cause an overhead.

I've loaded the software on two desktop XP machines replacing V2.5. The install went smoothly with the AV updating intself on completion. Performance generally seems to be unaffected and the control panel made configuring features simple and intuative,

The backup utility allows backup to local media or Norton's online backup area providing 2 GB of storage which is OK for documents but not enough for Media files. More space can be bought if required. It works well and is easy to configure and can be set to run at a scheduled time.

Norton 360 is a comprehensive package and also includes on line support and 1 years updates. Although not cheap is good value if you have more than one PC and Norton's longevity somehow gives me more confidence than relying on free software or less established vendors for something as important as virus protection
