  • Summary: This was a huge savings - I only wish that I had been able to read that it would have worked on my computer that has Windows Vista, and I could have saved even more money. Thanks for the savings - for my other 2 computers!

Major improvement

5 June 2009
  • Summary: Expert reviews of this product have shown it to be significantly better than most at detecting and removing malware. Although this has traditionally been true of NAV, past versions have earned a well-deserved reputation for slowing down whatever system they were installed on. This seems to be a thing of the past. If I leave my PC idle for awhile, NAV may display a pop-up to inform me that it is doing a background scan.
  • Pros: Doesn't hog resources like older NAV did. Very frequent signature updates. Scans during idle time. Simple, clean user interface. Works well with Windows 7 RC. Does its job very well.
  • Cons: Difficult to temporarily disable/shutdown.

Norton Antivirus 2009_1 user

  • Summary: In the last few years as a long time users of Norton's products, I have reluctantly switched to other antivirus programs because Norton Antivirus was well-known as a resource hog. Listening to users' complaints, Norton has dramatically improve its virus scan engine to the point that it is now the fastest Antivirus product on the market. It uses much less memory than competitors with its smaller file-size while speeding up the scanning time as well as installing time.
  • Pros: New and improved; fast; lean and easy to install.
  • Cons: Haunted by previous resource hog versions.

  • Summary: This new Symantec antivirus version has been improved a lot compared with the last version. The software did not slow down my system as badly as it did last time. I thought I would never go back using Symantec softwares but I gave it another try. I was not disappointed this time. Virus removal efficiency has also been improved a little.
  • Pros: does not slow down your system so badly
  • Cons: none

Quite some bugs

13 February 2009
  • Summary: After many positive descriptions i installed Norton Antivirus 2009 on my system(XP with SP2, 2.8 GHz, 2 MBytes). And then there were nasty problems: - SRTSP reported that it cannot find proper registry data and had to load default, - IE 7 did freeze and could not be stopped with task manager, only reset, - During system scan at approx one million files the program did not continue though progress bar was updating; again revery was only possible by reset.
  • Pros: Many features and functions
  • Cons: Bugs and incompatibilities
