5.0 out of 5 stars Great Internet Security suit for private use., 9 May 2011
This review is from: Norton Internet Security 2011, 3 Computers, 1 Year Subscription (PC) (CD-ROM)
I was a norton customer since I started using PC's(1996) and used it on Windows 95, Windows 98 SE and Windows Me, After so many sluggish applications by norton who burdened my computer so much more than I could stand I finally made my switch to nod32 and then to Kaspersky IS. And I've been using KIS since then, KIS 2008, 2009 and even 2010. After KIS license ended and experience of some problems with KIS 2010 from firewall hassle to detection(or lack of) problems I decided to try Norton Internet Security 2011 trial, I must admit I was surprised to see how light Norton actually was and it's heuristics defaults are good enough for me.
Norton is not lighter than KIS 2011 but from what I tested in my rig, it's not much more heavier on the system than KIS and I have found norton to be more effective, I've encountered two false positives by now but I guess it's better to have false positives than the other way around, also norton team seems to be on top of things with their updates.

The interface is appealing and for every threat detected, be it low or high, norton informs you of how many norton users suffered from it, norton also provides some more information as the level of cibercrime in the world map.

It come with a load of useful features from parental control to application ratings, browser security(for IE though), but the most useful feature was to be able to use it out of the box, I installed norton, registered, updated it and I didn't had to do anything else, norton keeps quiet and out of sight and I'm happy by using it's default definitions and it's smart and pro-active protections.

If you're looking for a great security suit for private use, norton is a good, silent and invisible one. From what I found the Amazon.co.uk offer is the best one with casual price cuts.
