5.0 out of 5 stars The best just got better 22 Dec 2010
By Paul Stewart VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have been using Norton Antivirus for more years than I care to remember, right back until the early days of MS Windows.

I am the IT manager for the UK office of a multinational company.

A few years back, I stopped using Norton as the software had a serious impact on the performance of some older PCs.

This new version is much better. Unless I actually instigate a scan I cannot see any impact on my computer.

A great advantage for the home user, this package protects up to three computers and / or laptops.

Use it with the built-in Windows Firewall plus the hardware firewall built into most broadband routers and you will be well protected.

As a final degree of protection, install the free software from ADAWARE and Search&Destroy. This will stop annoying AD software.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top-notch AV 17 Nov 2010
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Installation could hardly have been quicker or easier, and then Norton antivirus 2011 generally ran quietly in the background. Boot time went up by only a few seconds and system performance seemed largely unchanged. Scans were incredibly fast after the first one which took ages.

The interface is intuitive, not that you should need to use it much, although some of the reports took some figuring out. Help is very...helpful. It just seems to pop up as required.

Norton gets top ratings for malware detection in independent lab tests - certainly, Norton security products have never let an infection cause me a problem.

Seems to be a no-brainer to me. Norton went through a bad patch, producing bloated products, but no more. Need reliable security tools? There may be products that beat Norton in specific areas, but it's hard to believe you'll do better than Norton, overall.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Norton Anti-Virus software, licenced for three PCs, loaded easily and activated with the supplied code - once you have an account created the next two PCs activate just by logging into your Norton account. All three licences count down 365 days from the first PCs activation date. So far, 50 days in, Norton AntiVirus has run perfectly on our 32-bit XP and 64-bit Windows 7 PCs. The Norton interface looks very pretty and seems fairly easy to navigate, and it runs with few, if any, pop-up warnings to deal with [great for gamers]. Plus there's no noticeable hit on our PC speeds. For more details and PC system requirements check on-line at Symantec. When you leave the PC alone idling, Norton Anti-Virus rummages about checking for malware.

We also have the far more expensive Norton 360 v5.0 on other PCs that goes beyond this standard cheaper Norton Anti-Virus 2012 and adds in a `smart' firewall, on-line identity protection, social networking & parental controls, PC Tuneup and backup with 2Gb available on-line. In practice we don't really use the extra applications in Norton 360 as I have the key ones in stand-alone packages [Registry Mechanic and Norton Ghost], so in future I'll probably stick to this far cheaper Norton Anti-virus and the standard Windows firewall.

Norton Anti-virus 2012 now has PC Tools Spyware Doctor incorporated which goes far further than the likes of Bullguard and FSecure in detecting and removing nasty malware like `XP Anti-Virus' persistent pop-ups.

So a decent, quiet and relatively cheap anti-virus program. Also check out PC Pro's A-listed Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2011 and freebie AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition. Generally it's always cheaper to buy a boxed edition from Amazon than via download, so make sure you order well in advance of your licence expiring, as these days anti-virus software drops dead the second the years up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Antivirus 19 Sep 2011
Excellent service. Installation was not as easy as we hoped for as we already had an expired copy of Norton on our computer. For some reason when we installed the CD it de-activated our CD player,but with the help of a friend we managed to sort this out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Norton returns to form 11 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
This product installed first time and has quite a low footprint when running. Main gripe was during installation, when nothing appeared to be happening for ages and suddenly there was a huge jump from a low % to a high % done. A nice feature is being able to specify programs/files that are trusted by the user and can be skipped during virus checks. This speeds up the time to complete a scan very significantly. This product is excellent value given that it is a 3 PC licence and, a few days after the install, there is an invitation to download web protect for free.

This is a much slicker product than before and much less annoying than some AV programs I could mention.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick Reviews! 15 July 2011
By carlosnightman VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Easy to install, easy to verify results, the pop up scans aren't intrusive, nor are the warnings which seem pretty on the ball, and it hasn't caused any sort of slow down on my twilight years laptop. It may not be the most comprehensive Antivirus software on the market, but year upon year Norton proves themselves to be the go-to for the majority of PC users and gives peace of mind to nearly every happy customer. Yes there are free versions of different softwares, but I find that those less tech savvy or new to computers prefer a nice clear box with disc and instructions. Everything here is glossy and easy to follow, and the price is fine given the 3 computer deal. Normally I would go for the single deal, but as this was part of the Vine program I can't complain.
