Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Norton keeps getting better, 17 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Norton Internet Security 2010 - 1 User 3 Computers (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
After shambolic experiences with Norton back in 2003 and 2004, I've generally avoided Symantec products like the plague - instead opting to find solace and a modicum of satisfaction with McAfee's rival package.

However, when last year's 'award-winning' Norton Internet Security 2009 fell into my lap for review, I was pleasantly surprised to note that the platform had become considerably more user friendly and wholly more effective at helping to maintain a safe and secure computer while running quietly in the background, dealing with problems without my direct involvement, and never really intruding on my vital user time.

Norton Internet Security 2010 is, for all intents and purposes, a slightly more streamlined, more rounded, and more polished version of last year's offering. And, after two months of constant usage on an office desktop and two personal notebooks... I'm happy to say my computers remain completely clean of viruses, spyware, adware, malware and other unwanted nasties.

That being said, there are notable differences to be had that place 2010 above its predecessor - one of which is a significantly more aggressive pop-up defence system that seems to root out anything and anything deemed suspect (usually dodgy .pdf attacks and the odd Trojan here and there) and then proudly let me know they've been successfully bounced.

Another contributing element is the software's impressive lack of pressure on the core CPU, which means extensive system scans will generally run in the background without any adverse effect on your surfing or online workload (I'm using Core 2 Duos and 2GBs of RAM on each host computer).

In short, this is easily the best Norton package I've come across in my time and a further step up from an already outstanding 2009 edition.

Quick and easy installation, instant online security, regular LiveUpdates for constant blanket coverage against new threats - and three licenses for a single user - mean Norton 2010 is, in my opinion, well worth your time.
