Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Viruses, cybercriminals, and other threats can make the Internet a dangerous place.

Protect yourself with Norton Internet Security 2011. Fast and light, Norton Internet Security 2011 safeguards your PC without slowing it down. You’ll enjoy rock-solid security without sacrificing performance.

Norton Internet Security 2011 helps prevent cybercriminals from stealing your identity and your hard-earned money when you search, surf, shop, socialize, and bank online. Improved Norton Safe Web warns you of unsafe websites and suspicious online merchants right in your search results. It even blocks known malicious sites to help keep you from getting scammed.

Norton Identity Safe remembers and secures your user names and passwords and then automatically enters them for you when you bank, shop, or socialize online. It prevents eavesdropping cybercriminals from swiping your information and saves you time.

Norton Internet Security 2011 also detects and eliminates viruses, spyware, and other threats, letting you email, chat, and download files without getting or passing on threats to family and friends.

Norton Pulse Updates provide mini-updates every 5–15 minutes—without interrupting you or slowing down your PC—to help ensure you’re protected against new threats that appear. And in case of emergency, new Norton Rescue Tools can help you get even severely infected PCs up and running fast.

Norton Internet Security 2011 even identifies problems that could affect your PC’s performance and proactively notifies you when an application is slowing down your PC’s performance or using up system resources.

Norton Utilities provides the essential tools you need to optimise the performance of your PC. It finds and fixes common PC problems, frees up disk space, reclaims system memory, accelerates startup time, and boosts application and system performance. It opens applications faster, and lets you run more of them simultaneously. You get everything you need to help make your old PC run like new again.

Norton Utilities focuses on performance and provides easy-to-use tools that make a real difference. Make your computer boot faster by prioritising the startup programs with Startup Manager. Instead of letting Microsoft Windows load programs you don’t need, Startup Manager loads only the programs you choose. The Service Manager works in a similar way to accelerate the PC’s startup time. Need more PC memory? The registry defragmenter and cleaner free up and reclaim memory by fixing registry errors, organising registry files, and repairing broken links. The result? Programs open faster and you can work on multiple open programs simultaneously.

You can boost the overall performance of your PC by optimising the hard disk with the disk defragmenter and cleaner. It removes hard drive clutter, temporary files, and Internet cookies. Plus it increases privacy and security by permanently and efficiently purging unwanted sensitive data from your PC to prevent hackers from accessing it.

Performance Test lets you see how well your computer is really running by benchmarking its performance against similar PCs. Norton Utilities offers the essential tools you need to optimise the performance of your PC.

While Norton had a reputation in the past for hogging resources, this has been much improved since 2006. The latest version builds on these improvements by adding more features, without compromising performance. I have upgraded from the 2010 version (for free, since I had a valid subscription), and I let the upgrade centre uninstall the old version and re-install the new version. The entire process took just over a minute and a half, plus a restart of the computer. (Seriously!)

After installing, I ran a quick scan of my computer, which took 30 seconds, followed by a full scan which took just under an hour. This is certainly comparable to other security suites, if not better, so performance shouldn't be a worry for anyone considering this package. I was also using my computer while these scans were taking place, so the times may be a little longer than if the computer was idle.

This package is also set up so that updates will take place around every 5 minutes, and scans (both quick and full) will occur when your computer has not been used for 10 minutes. This time can be adjusted to suit your own preferences. Once you return to the computer, the scan instantly pauses, and will resume when the computer is idle again.

Packed into this suite are many features, some of them new for 2011. As expected, it contains a firewall and virus and malware sweeping tools. But in addition to this, many other features are included. Firstly, applications which are running on your computer are analyzed, and if they are deemed to be safe by Norton, they are eliminated from future scans, thus saving time. Downloads are also examined, and any which are found to be dangerous are blocked.

Having spent all weekend trying to restore my computer to a functioning state, to say that I am disgruntled with Norton Internet Security 2011 Performance Pack would be an understatement.

I have an HP Pavilion laptop with Windows 7. I didn't buy the Performance Pack specifically for this computer, I bought it for my netbook which is struggling under the weight of too many programmes and I thought Norton Utilities sounded just the thing I needed, but because the programme comes with 3 licences I thought I might as well install it on both of my computers - big mistake! After running the registry defragment option and agreeing to restart the computer I was faced with a blue critical error screen. Essentially the registry defragment destroyed the Windows registry beyond repair! It disabled system restore so I was unable to restore Windows to a previous functioning state and it prevented the use of safe mode.

I contacted Norton support to be told that I needed to use the Windows 7 installation CD to initiate a repair of the registry - HP no longer distribute Windows installation discs with new computers - when I explained this to the Norton 'analyst' he was only able to suggest that I return my computer to the manufacturer! Eventually I had to resort to wiping the hard disc and replacing it with a full system backup I made just over a month ago. Thankfully with the guidance of a friend I was able to launch an alternative operating system called Ubuntu which allowed me to access and backup my files.

I am now painstakingly attempting to update my computer to how it was yesterday morning before I made the critical error of installing Norton Utilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value 19 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
Bought this instead of 360 as it was 10 cheaper. As it came bundled with Norton Utilities the package provides everything 360 does except for the online storage facility, which at 2g wouldn't be particularly useful to me.

I have always found it cheaper to buy a new disk than the expensive online renewals and if you get yourself organised to order a couple of weeks in advance of your renewal date then there is never an issue of being unprotected.

Internet security 2011 is quite unobtrusive and easy to use. Norton seem to have made it less "clunky" over the last few versions.

It appears from the paperwork that you can use the licence to download Netbook Security as one of the options if you have a netbook. I have just loaded the full version onto mine anyway.

Norton Utilities was particularly useful and has speeded up the boot up speed of the 3 machines I have used it on. It also seemed to sort out one or two gliches. No doubt there are other utility programs out there that are better but this one is quite user friendly.

Amazon provided their usual efficient delivery service so no gripes on that front.

All in all a pretty good purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential - but watch the price! 17 Dec 2010
Norton Internet Security is in my view an essential for safe computing. Having seen the consequences of friends taking risks with "free" security software I would settle for nothing less.

Loading a new version is on the face of it straightforward. Once loaded however it says you have for example 3 days security left. What happened to the 365 just bought?
Its not sutomatic. You have to go to subscription status in the loaded program and click Renew to enter your new code. Quite irritating really when it could be part of the installation process.

The extras of the performance pack are not of great value as many will have utilities that perform the same tasks anyway.

The main point is that this program does what it says on the tin. Next point is how the price varies from day to day. I'll settle for the three PC version for under 30. You don't get much better value than 20p a week for each computer.
