I ended up with the Norton Security products on my PC because it came pre-installed and the easy option seemed to be to keep on renewing (and occasionally upgrading).

You will be fine whilst the product is working.

Sooner or later though it will stop working. You might start getting error messages at startup time or bits of functionality will stop working. This has happened to me over the years when various Windows updates have been installed which conflict with the Norton stuff.

When it does stop working you will wish you had never even heard of Norton because you will need to use Symantec Support. It is dreadful. One option is to "chat to an analyst" online - this will take you hours because you get huge streams of strange stuff sent to you to respond to. You will end up with a massive transcript which barely resembles English. In the end you will decide that it is a waste of time.

You might then opt for the free email support. Their answer for nearly every single problem you hit will be to uninstall and reinstall their software. This is very time consuming and never fixes the problem. In fact it generally makes it worse. They will ask you to uninstall using their "removal tool". Not even this specialist removal tool seems to remove the software very well. You will be asked to re-install over and over again. It never fixes the problems. In the end they will give up on you and stop responding to your emails even though they havent fixed your problem.

It is at this point that you will decide that life is too short and that you will switch to another security provider.

I went down the free software route (AVG and Comodo). Both are equally easy to set up and use as the Norton stuff and you can get sensible help on how to fix problems on the free forums (for AVG at least).

I cant imagine ever buying Norton/Symantec stuff ever again - its simply not worth the hassle.

Have used norton since version 4, waaaaaaay back, and upgraded pretty much every year. It's bloatware, I know, but friendly and seamless, so worth it.

Just lately however, 2007 NIS has mashed my pc beyond belief. My internet connection drops out if more than 2 or 3 things are connecting (ie outlook, e-mail and an IE window) and the pc loses connectivity. I've had network connections corrupt for no reason, Lan ports unrecognized, bsods (none since 2001 and installing xp but >1 a day for the last 2 weeks) even spoke to my isp about the constant disconnections @25p per minute, PC refused to boot into windows at all ya de ya de ya.

Anyway, run usual checks and find no spyware, no virii, no malware and defrag etc, I reformat as assume pc is getting a bit ragged round the edges, and 2 months later here I am, still in deep doodoo.

Sooo many random errors, affecting memory, random reboots, IE claiming 'browsing unsafe' at random intervals (that prompts the wife to phone me at work in a flap, scare-mongering gits, auto-protect just switching itself off, broadband connection dropping out, I thought mobo or cpu on way out and ordered a new pc.

Whilst waiting for new pc to arrive I uninstalled NIS2007 and install zonealarm free version to tide me over. 3 days in now, and not a single problem. Web perfect, e-mail ok, downloading p2p, browsing web, checking mail, and not a hint of a problem.

I've been a norton fanboy for years now, really, but this is it. Finished, it's caused me to buy a 900 quid pc it looks like I didn't need and I'm not a happy bunny. when the new pc arrives, I shall order zonealarm Internet Securit Suite 7 (see PCPRO review) and never touch norton again. It's screwed me over once too many times and I've had enough.

Apart from completely taking over your pc, you will think that your pc is completely protected from any threats. Well, let me persuade you away from that nice warm feeling.

I recently downloaded Google's new Pack on our other home pc and decided to test it out before renewing the subscription to Symantec for virus protection. While nothing had been found on a recent scan, the antivirus software provided free by Google (love them or hate them), PC Tools Spy Doctor, managed to find a large number of adtrackers, trojans etc., Some were low risk but many were medium and high. None found by Symantec's software.

I then decided to try it out on my own laptop and lo and behold it found 193 infections, albbeit 133 were low risk. However, I have always configured Norton to remove even low risk threats. How can this be I ask myself? Norton continues to assure me that everything is dandy whilst a free piece of software from Google and PC Tools finds an extraordinary number of infections. I use it every day now and always find new threats and infections.

Do not buy. You have been forewarned.

I have been using Norton since 2003 and on the whole, I have been delighted with every single product. However, the latest issue of software has, in my opinion, been a disaster. I always look to be fully covered against all potential threats, so I have Norton Systemworks Premier 2007, Norton Internet Security 2007, and Norton Confidential. The bottom line is that these products, although might work separately on different machines, do not work when put together as a package on the same machine. For the last 4 months I have been contacting Symantec to resolve my issues (error messages, boot errors, incompatibility issues, failed updates etc etc), to no avail. The latest support I had was to install NIS 07 V2, Symantec having acknowledged there had been some problems with NIS 07 V1. There has also been a revised update to Liveupdate (the software used to download updates) as there had been some issue's with the previous version. All in all, very poor indeed.

My advice would be to maybe consider purchasing one piece of software from Norton that would suit your purpose best, but steer well clear of trying to give yourself "full protection".

P.s I would also add that when you buy individual products, Norton now ask you to renew subscriptions on three products - not one! This means it will cost, in my case, on average, over £100 to renew. Previously one valid subscription covered you for all your Norton products.

Very poor recommendation.
