5.0 out of 5 stars Spankingly fast and superb as always 29 Oct 2009
By Ash TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've used Norton before and never had a problem, so it was with no trepidation whatsoever that I took delivery of this latest version. And I was not disappointed.

My laptop has been creaking a bit over the last 6 months or so, as its paltry 160GB HDD has become filled with useless programmes, a ton of MP3 files and the behemoth that is Microsoft Vista. But the thing that was slowing it down the most was my anti-virus, PC Guard, which was provided by Virgin Media (my ISP). This stupid programme takes 5 mins to get going from startup, and even takes a while when switching profiles, and it makes all the other programmes wait while it hauls its lazy butt out of its virtual bed. I was sick of it. Tellingly, a day before Norton was due to turn up, PC Guard curled up its toes and died, crashing my laptop and causing mayhem.

Anyway, once I got it uninstalled, I whacked in Norton. What a breath of fresh air! It took minutes to install, unobtrusively. It takes probably 30 - 60 secs to start up when I switch on, and runs quietly in the background. There are few pop-ups, and so far no demands for updates. Hurrah! I wanted to run a scan, and was pleased to find that there is now a Quick Scan option which conentrates its efforts on those areas of your HDD most likely to be infected. This was easy to find in the updated and accessible user interface. It completed the scan in a minute or so and identified 165 malicious cookies that the useless PC Guard had let through! It dealt with them ruthlessly. I couldn't be more pleased!

I think the lesson is, if you want a useable PC, get a well-known and well-respected bit of anti-virus software like Norton.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, effective and unnoticeable 24 Oct 2009
By Straightforward TOP 500 REVIEWER
Ok. There are, confusingly, THREE different Norton products available at the time of writing this: Norton Antivirus; Norton Internet Security; and Norton 360.

I'm already happy with my firewall protection and I have no need for extra identity protection. I have separate tools for keeping the computer running properly, and I have external disk drives for backup, so for me this program was the right choice.

Earlier this year I used McAfee, but a virus got through and destroyed the operating system on my machine - luckily I have a brother who was able to resurrect it after 8 hours of fiddling and taking it apart. I managed to get it off my other machine using a Symantec product specifically designed to remove that particular virus, so I was happy to choose their Norton antivirus program.

Norton has been on sale for years and has steadily got better year on year, and is so easy to understand when the menus come up that it's self-explanatory. It operates without slowing anything down and inspires confidence - it finds everything that is lurking in the murky depths and corners that some other products leave behind. It's the Domestos of the hard drive world!

2.0 out of 5 stars better out there. 8 Dec 2009
By Mad Saint Uden VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
this is still very user friendly and most beginners can figure out what it's doing. But the virus database is not as thorough as others, or maybe not updated as quickly as others. Also it uses too much memory for my liking and slows the computer down. I have found that I've had to restore my pc since putting this on as some important windows files got corupt, i don't know if this was from norton's attempts to remove a virus or from a virus.

3.0 out of 5 stars AV update. 15 April 2010
By Dave
Verified Purchase
Wanted to update my Norton AV 2005. Decided to stick with Norton, expecting modern products to be a big improvement.
Wanted full version, not upgrade. Bought CD. Installation instructions too light. Install failed. No mention of need to manually remove any AV currently on PC first. Tried Customer Support (still bad for Norton) and was sent nonexistent phone no. to call.
PC does appear somewhat quicker with this modern version. Still early days with it so I'm not proficient yet. User interface screens a little cluttered and uneasy to follow for a traditionalist, but pretty I guess for the younger user.
It's doing it's job and seems to work well enough. It picks up things 2005 had no idea of, as I expected / wanted, and works with my Firewall (Zone Alarm). I'd heard 2009 didn't so I waited for 2010.
I'm happy enough with it so far but their after sales and customer support still remains poor, especially as their products aren't cheap. For the price there are still holes that should have been filled in years ago.
I guess their fairly Corporate, so domestic sales aren't their strong point.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've used Norton 360 in the past and was impressed by the comprehensive protection it offered without noticeable impact on PC performance. After dealing with many system resource hogs, Norton is refreshingly unintrusive, and AV 2010 is no different. It was a doddle to install, even on a rather aging laptop, and equally user-friendly on an even more decrepit desktop. The silent mode is invaluable - the software ticks over without the usual hourly alerts to trumpet its presence. I've found that the virus scan is even speedier than 360, and personally I prefer the comparatively pared down interface. I'm not sure I can recommend it over 360, though, when you take into account the full range of protections offered which are missing in this package. In particular, I think it's worth paying a little extra for the peace of mind that 360's backup utility offers, but for pure anti-virus protection, so far I can't find a fault with it. If you just require a more basic programme to keep your PC bogey-free, this is good value for money, especially as it offers coverage for 3 household PCs.
