I tried upgrading to Norton 360 on one of the PCs but it suffered from exactly the same issues (and incidentally it kept losing its virus definitions for no apparent reason, so that PC was unprotected most of the time). Norton email helpline were polite and tried to help but they just kept sending me instructions to re-install, which did not help.
I have also got a copy of Internet Security which came as a 60 day trial on a PC running Windows Vista - and that one works fine. So it seems as though Symantec may be focusing their efforts on Vista now, and not giving much attention to XP.
Just looking at the reviews on Amazon as well as on Google, you can see some people have no problems - but many people have lots of problems - so going for the 2007 versions of Norton Internet Security and Norton 360 seems to be a bit of a lottery - and an expensive gamble. Now I've got to buy something else - Around £100 wasted on Norton. What a shame, their products used to be so good!
This however was a great disappointment. Istallation went smoothly as expected and the computer is protected with a firewall and antivirus simultaneously. You can also install the software on 2 other computers and i assume when you renew your licence online in a years time, you only need to do this once and it should then continue to protect all 3 computers.
I am very dissappointed in the product however as my computer now moves at snail speed. Performance has significantly decreased when the software is running in the background and even when turned off (when disconnected from the internet to carry out full system antivirus scan) it still runs slowly. Don't get me wrong, my computer is no ancient having got it a year ago, with over a 1Gb ram 1.3processor.
It may be that the software is more aimed at more powerful computers that come out this year together with Windows Vista or something. Nonetheless, at the end of my licence expiry i will be returning to the separate Norton Antivirus and Firewall products with an earlier version which should do just fine.
The software may be advanced including extra protection on Spam, email, trojan horses and other attacks, but it sure does let you know about it by slowing your system down!!
I've had problems where my subscription timed out 9 months early, then it had to be reinstalled as it self destroyed. (Many irritating emails and calls to the help line who had to very apologetically correct the problem remotely.)
Installed on three PC's using 512mb to 2Gb memory. Realised they were getting slower and slower. Just uninstalled it on the 1GB machine and to my amazement the pc speed suddenly nearly doubled. Memory access and disk read speeds increased remarkedly, file fetch and open in office back to a blink of an eye.
Installed a different virus software, and no dramatic drop in speed. Loathed to reinstall Norton. I am going to give the rival a month and see if it to then slows. But at present it is far superior in PC performance to Norton.
Email and internet access much quicker, it has found two advertising cookies Norton appears to have missed.
If you are thinking of buying it, google "norton user forum" and look on the Topix site. At the last check, there were over 200 people reporting problems with this product. How on earth do they test their software - certainly not on the average user's setup!!!
