5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, rip-off renewal 1 Jan. 2012
I have used this product for several years now and I have no plans to change this. What bothers (and amuses) me a little each year is Symantec's renewal policy. At the end of the license period a window warning me that the license is about to expire pops up each time the computer is started. With a few clicks you can renew the license for about £50. However the same product can be bought on Amazon for £17,99 including shipment of the CD to Denmark. I'm sure that customers that did the renewal and then find out about this will feel absolutely ripped-off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turn off auto renewal 20 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase
Norton used to use too many resources and slow computers, but the last two years have seen a dramatic improvement. I now choose NIS as it is effective at protecting my system without slowing it down. Do watch that Norton set up auto renewal each year and this is very expensive. I bought this years copy frm Amazon for under £30 and was auto renewed for most £50!!! After a number of calls to Norton, I finally got a compromised refund. In future I will make certain that I untick the renewal box.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good cracking program. 21 Sept. 2011
By F. Patel TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
I actually haven't bought Norton Internet Security 2012, but rather updated my 2011 version which I installed in May of this year. Well to be honest I was most impressed with both the 2010 and 2011 versions which have shed the heavy processor image that Norton was infamous for. An from the looks of things this latest iteration continues with that low processor usage. Upgrading was relatively a very simple affair, I logged into my Norton account (Which you have to activate when you initially load the program) and simply clicked the upgrade program icon. It was simple as that.

The control panel has had a revamp and is easier to use. (Not that the old one was any problem) I ran a full scan and my 4 year old computer (Dual core Intel /Windows Vista/150Gb HD) completed it in around 30 minutes. Now that was a first scan, which usually takes a long time, so most impressed with that.

This version offers a few thing I didn't notice with the 2011 version. Mobile protection for your Android phone. However clicking on the button simply whisks you away to the Android market where you can download the lite version of the program for free (Naturally The full mobile phone version you have to pay for)

It also includes a link to an internet backup service, however that too has to be paid for and honestly you'd be better off purchasing a portable hard drive, however that would entail copying your HD contents over on a regular basis. Something the average person will not do.Another nice touch is the inclusion of a start up manager, which allows you to disable those pesky programs which feel that they have a right to be included in your computer start up thus slowing your computer up something awful.

4.0 out of 5 stars I definitely like it. 15 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought my laptop 3 years ago and it came with a subscription to McAfee. Last year I changed to AVG2011 and I certainly liked AVG more than McAfeee, but I found the anti-spam filter was becoming quite unmangeable in the last 3 months or so - missing regular spam, and flagging many of my non-spam mails as spam. Also AVG was causing long delays in starting up Outlook and some other programmes.
I saw that over the last 12 months that Norton has been getting very good reviews in the "computer press" and so I decided to change.
So far, after 6 weeks, I am happy that I did so.

Installation was easy and straightforward. I found options/settings menus for Norton are not immediately intuitive. Basically I wanted to set regular update checks, set regulkar scans, alerts etc etc. I had to use the help menus a bit to figure it all out, and I was not satisfied withthe default settings.
However, once set, I have been very very happy with the programme.
- I dont observe the same slow-down when starting up Outlook or other programmes.
- It picks up and cleans tracking cookies regularly
- just over last 2-3 days it has actively blocked a couple of trojans.
- Overall it does not impact the performance of my computer anywhere near as much as other programmes that I have used.

ONE thing that I am less than satisfied with: the programme will automatically scan any flash-drive or other removable media that is connected, BUT it only reports this if it finds a problem. There is no visible evidence either during the scan or after, that this automatic scan has taken place. There is nothing in the history reports.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent once again 5 Oct. 2011
Now some people will say why pay for a security program, when there's programs that you can download for free? Many people will install free Antiviruses on their PC and although it's better than nothing it could be putting your PC at risk. Antivirus Vendors will create Virus/Spyware definition updates for their Antivirus products, so that they can detect new known threats. That's where the problem lies 'Known' because there's so much Malware (Spyware/Viruses) on the Internet that people often get infected because their Antivirus solutions didn't detect it. Antivirus has its place for protection, but it's just not adequate on its own. More Advanced users will download other free security programs to strengthen their security, which is fine, but the average user doesn't want the potential conflicts or security that they simply don't understand.

I would like to say though, that just because a security program costs money, it doesn't always mean that program is good. I've used Paid security programs that have cause me problems and not lived up to the claims.

I've been using Norton Internet security since the 2010 version and Symantec haven't disappointed me with this latest 2012 version. Norton is still plagued by its old reputation of being slow and not living up to the security claims. Norton is very good these days however, but ofcourse Nothing is ever perfect or could offer 100% guaranteed security protection. What Norton offers is very good protection, but not at the expense of ease of use. Norton Internet security has different layers of security and I will cover some of them here. It offers the standard Antivirus and firewall, but there's also a technology they call Sonar and another called 'Insight'.
