Comprehensive, user-friendly and reliable (without slowing down your system)
on 18 September 2009
I gave up with Norton products several years ago having found them clunky, not particularly user-friendly and they hogged too many system resources making my PC frustratingly slow. So when my husband bought a Vista PC with a 3 month trial pre-installed, I was sceptical and anticipated he'd soon grow weary of it - but how wrong I was...
Norton 360 v.3 is a comprehensive, fully-integrated anti-virus, internet-security, PC optimisation and backup program all in one - and it does what it says. It works away quietly in the background updating, scanning for viruses, tweaking the hard drive and even backing up data at whatever schedule you choose without noticeably slowing down the system. It's also much more user-friendly and intuitive that the old Norton products.
Now that my husband's 3-month free trial has ended there has been no question as to whether he continues to use this - he won't trust anything else! The package provides complete peace of mind and, although it's not the cheapest product, it's very good value when spread across 2 PCs and a laptop. It's also cheaper to buy the full boxed product from Amazon than it is to renew or download direct from the Symantec site!
