5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent system protection, 27 Mar 2011
This review is from: Norton 360 v5.0, 1 User, 3 PCs 1 Year Subscription (PC) (DVD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Norton 360 1 year 3 PC edition is more than just an Anti Virus and Firewall package. It has a few other system tools in its armoury. It now has anti identity theft tools, a web site checker tool that warns of scamming sites, a series of system tune up options and a parental guard system to block children accessing certain sites. On this edition you are also offered 2Gb of online backup storage. Loading it is lengthy but straight forward; there is a registration process and an auto update of virus signatures etc. Over the last few years Norton `s software has been criticised for slowing down computers by using lots of memory and system time. This has been corrected and it now runs quietly in the background with little degradation in the speed of my machine (Intel i5 8 Mb RAM and Win 7 64 bit). Being in the software business I was able to exhaustively test the effectiveness of its Anti Virus and Firewall and I can report it found and deleted everything that was thrown at it. The parental controls are simple to set up and work well and the Phishing site indicator found all the false sites I tried to fool it with. This works and feels like a very well developed program and now comes with 24/7 technical support. Norton 360 constantly monitors your computer but you can scan manually from 1 file to the whole disk if you want to get involved. There is also a quick scan that checks the main system areas for viruses. These days this sort of software is essential and Norton 360 does the job well The parental controls and online storage are there is you need them so just about every data risk is covered. I also have Kasperskey Pure on another machine and they seem neck and neck in performance and functionality so whichever one you choose your system will be looked after and your data protected.
