Excerpt: Norton Internet security is one of the best known computer security systems out there, but how good is it? I bought this software about 8 months ago now and have found that it is pretty good. What I like is that it is clear and simple to use. From the first day you get it and put the disc in to download it, it is easy to do. You can just sit back and relax while it does all the work. It has many different options that are great.
Excerpt: There is now a vast array of Internet Security software available out there. I would say Norton is one of the biggest & most well known players in the market, so exactly how good is their Norton 360 suite? When people think about Internet Security, they think viruses but there is so much more that can harm your computer whilst it's online & Norton 360 aims to protect you against these all.
Excerpt: I have had this program for a few months now and overall it is probably the best antivirus / firewall program I have used bar a few small niggles which can be easily ironed out by an experienced user. At the start I got a 30 day free trial which can be obtained from symantec which is a must before paying for the product.
Useful software blocker but expensive at around £70.

Excerpt: Norton Internet Security - over priced and just a constant nuisance, but better than having those pesky viruses which are so easy to get. Defends agains a broad raneg of threats, including spyware and viruses. Transaction secutiry safeguards you against online identity theft. Back up and restore - gives you a certain memory block dedicated to backup and restore so you dont lose your important files.
Excerpt: Norton 360 2.0 offers comprehensive protection against spyware and virus alike. It also offers protection against data loss, identity loss and phishing, thus covering all the nasty threats that you could come across. It can also "tune up" your pc for you and defrag it at the same time.For some unknown reason you have to download anti spam protection and parental controls as seperate add ons which is a bit of a bind.
Excerpt: Symantec Norton 360 was released in 2007. More than half year ago, I got an opportunity to try it out for one month after uninstalling my Macafee (it is bundled with my laptop, free for 1 year ues). As you may know, Symantec Norton is very professional in anti virus field. This version provides a lot of features for users. It includes anti-virus, anti-spam, online transaction security (to avoid fishing sites), backup & restore files and even clean-up.
Summary: The Symantec Norton 360 2.0 is undoubtedly a powerful package aiming at a total prtection solution (almost!) a super security suit can offer. In fact, I was lucky to make an in-depth research on it before ultimately getting one for my personal computing needs. Most importantly I feel, it is worth making your pc/notebook compatible with the minimum requirement criteria it needs before trying/buying 360 in order to make the programs running smooth and effective.
Pros: * Light on system resources (unlike its predecessor Norton v 1), * Comprehensive security package with great features (Includes Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware,ID protection, data archiving, online backups, Anti-Phishing, parental controls, Anti-Spam etc.), * Intuitive, * Quick scan, installation and downloads, * User friendly interface
Cons: > No uninstall icon included, > Does not support firefox/Opera browsers, > Lack of enhanced wireless security tools, > No encrypted id vaults for storing credit card/password information
A good package for an internet user but will compromise on system speeds
