NOT IMPRESSED

DAVE G., Newegg
6 December 2007
  • Summary: I GOT THIS 3 USER DEAL ALMOST FREE AFTER REBATE, IF I HAD PAYED FOR THIS I WOULD BE GREATLY DISAPPOINTED. THIS WAS PRESENTED AS AN ALL IN ONE FROM SYMANTEC, BUT IT FALLS SHORT IN THE PC MAINTENANCE AREA. I WAS LEAD TO BELIEVE IT CONTAINED MORE OF THE SYSTEM WORKS APPLICATIONS.
  • Pros: I LIKED THE ALL-IN-ONE EFFORT.
  • Cons: DISABLE ALL OTHER SOFTWARE, IT'S INSTALL CAN BE SENSITIVE. THE PARENTAL CONTROLS ARE A JOKE, BETTER FREE STUFF ON THE NET. IT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH FIREFOX OR OPERA, ECT. YOU LOOSE FUNCTIONALITY IF RUNNING ANYTHING OTHER THAN IE. WEB PAGES THAT ARE BLOCKED CAN BE ALLOWED THROUGH A CUMBERSOME PRO...

Does what I needed

Melvin S., Newegg
18 November 2007
  • Summary: I'm not sure if I will get another Symantec product or renew this. It seems the quality is not what it used to be, but I've used Symantec for so many years I'm sort of in a rut.
  • Pros: I use this on an HP Pavilion zv5000 series AMD Athlon (3 yrs old) running XP. No serious issues, or even complaints, in nearly 7 months of use. I still need to run Spybot Search and Destroy and Adaware SE to get rid of all the junk that can be picked up. I'm a little disappointed that Norton 360 ...
  • Cons: See above.

catch a virus, pay extra

ELLISON N., Newegg
20 September 2007
  • Summary: A little worm got by this, and every status icon was still green. Now I get a spam page pop-up once an hour. It even popped-up as I was writing this. Tech support was not helpful.
  • Pros: Much easier than 2006, doesn't slow my system as much as 2006 did, most scans are done as a background operation.
  • Cons: Doesn't catch everything, tech support.

Review #2

Anonymous, Newegg
15 May 2007
  • Summary: Had to drop my review 2 Eggs because of the hampering of the browser issue. Needs an update maybe to speed the scan process up. But it does cover it all very well. They have named this product well.
  • Pros: Good throughout coverage, Protects it all very well, but at a cost to speed. See Cons...
  • Cons: The price you pay for this protection is in your browser switching pages. It slows it down quite abit. You will have to wait for it to fully scan the page before being able to switch to the next Link/Page.

This software is....

Anonymous, Newegg
18 April 2007
  • Summary: When I leave my cpu on and logg off is when i have trouble. I logg back on but the norton software dont open up and thats when the windows shows the error and sends a report. Windows error solutions says that symantec was contacted about the error but there is no solution yet.
  • Pros: I would of gave it 2 eggs but this norton security does not slow my system down at boot up or when using my windows xp. I just got it so the stuff that looks to be pros I cant really comment on yet.
  • Cons: This hit me for 87 dollars with tax included. The software crashes frequently because windows tells me often that a symantic app had an error and must close. Windows live on care did not give me all this trouble.

shop around before you buy

  • Excerpt: I have always been a user of Norton Antivirus until recently. It's one of the most commercial internet safety products around and i think this i probably the reason i ended up with it as i knew little about what else was on offer. Norton offer a good service when a problem occurs.

For all around protection Norton 360 is good, but you will notice a PC performance decrease.

  • Excerpt: I havn't used Norton for a long time since the days of Windows 98. It was a great piece of software, good at what it did and took little resources. It all however, has now changed. It is still good at detecting malicious programs and is now packaged with its own firewall and spyware protection.

An acceptable roduct but there are better ones available.

  • Excerpt: With all the virus's hidden in certain emails and websites these days, it is vital that you have a reliable and efficient anti virus system to cope with them. Norton Anti-Virus Software has been around for many years now, and to be honest, it does exactly what it says on the box.
  • Pros: Reliability

Es bueno, pero no el mejor.

18 August 2008
  • Summary: Norton Antivirus 360 es un buen antivirus con anti-phising, que evita problemas del estilo de fraudes bancarios, es el mejor Norton, con la mejor seguridad posible y los mayores componentes, pero tiene que envidiar mucho a NOD32 y Kaspersky, entre otros, yo personalmente, lo tengo porque desde el...
  • Pros: protege al equipo, me habrá bloqueado cientos o miles de virus ya .  .  .
  • Cons: es peor que la competencia y muy pesado .
