5.0 out of 5 stars Still a comprehensive Internet Security package 13 Sept. 2010
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Free upgrade from 2010 to 2011 9 Sept. 2010
By Gray
I've upgraded Norton Internet Security 2010 by checking for a new version within the 2010 interface and was surprised when it downloaded the 2011 version. Justed followed the prompts given by the software which was easy. Norton then uninstalled 2010 and installed 2011 with no problems it was then quickly updated when I went back online. My laptop starts quicker than the previous version and the Norton icon even appears in the system tray faster with the reassuring green tick telling you all's well. It's early days but everything is running smoothly. Even a full system scan appeared to be quicker. There's also a map showing worldwide cybercrime activity from the previous 24 hours. Click on the map and see the number of threats from cities around the world scroll along the bottom of the map. I even prefer the new interface. I would recommend getting Norton Internet Security 2010 saving you a few pounds and do the free upgrade to the 2011 version as I did. Five stars so far but if it changes will post an update.

Update. No problems so far but if you want a bit of added protection I suggest creating a bootable recovery disk and/or create a bootable USB Key. If you updated NIS2010 to NIS2011 you will not have the disk with the Norton's Recovery Tool program. It's not a problem go to the windows start menu click on all programs find Norton Internet Security in the list select and then select Norton Recovery Tools make sure you're online this will take you to the Norton Bootable Recovery Tool download page. I suggest you have a recordable cd ready. Just follow the instructions the program will download and install Norton Bootable Recovery Tool Wizard I selected create on CD/DVD media and burned a cd so I was covered. You can however burn to a USB key.

4.0 out of 5 stars ... a welcome return for Norton ... 17 Dec. 2010
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I hadn't been near a Norton product in years, as there always seemed to be problems with system resources. Tired of not actually being able to use my computer, I moved onto other products. Although, to be fair, not switching on your PC is the most effective method of internet security.

However, I'd heard good things about this new version, so decided to give it a bash. And, lo and behold, but Norton seem to have got things right. After a quick and painless installation, things motored along quite smoothly, and I had to check to make sure it was actually running. It was. However, this isn't a product for the faint of heart, as there are a lot of advanced settings that you'll want to fiddle with to get things just right. But that aside, it's a top notch product.

It does what it needs to in warning about unsafe websites and suspicious online merchants. It blocks known malicious sites and there's a bit called Norton Identity Safe that remembers user names and passwords securely for online sites. It has a mini update facility that runs every 15 minutes to keep things up to date, and will detect and eliminate viruses, spyware, and other threats. All told, an excellent product and a welcome return (for me) to Norton.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have tried several different security suites over the years, and it was a pleasure to return to Norton with their 2011 version. There is an awful lot in this package, and probably most people will not need everything, but I think almost everyone will find their needs are completely covered.

Good points:
- REALLY fast to install. Took about a minute to be up and running (seriously!). Virus definitions and latest product updates then downloaded seamlessly and invisibly in the background, taking only a couple of minutes on my "up to 8MB" connection
- Does not seem to delay PC start-up at all
- No intrusive 'splash' screens at start-up
- Absolutely ZERO technical knowledge required to set this up, and all the options seem to default to a 'more safe' setting
- Regular scans, etc. just run quietly in the background, and you only know they are happening if it finds something you need to know about
- Full scan found 4 apparently infected files, which had clearly been missed by the previous product I just uninstalled.
- Integrates seamlessly with Norton Online Family, which is EASILY the best, friendliest and most effective parental controls I have found as part of a suite (not tried specialist products like Net Nanny, as these cost so much extra). Note: this requires a separate download and install to set up, as it is not assumed everyone needs it.
- Allows you to create a 'recovery disk', which you can file away in case you get a really bad infection and cannot start the PC normally. This is also a separate download (even when installing NIS2011 from disk).
- There are options to tune up the package for your PC, such as skipping 'known safe' files to save processing.
