Norton Finally Does Something Right

Matthew D., Newegg
21 July 2009
  • Summary: I've also used NOD32, Avast, Kaspersky and BitDefender in the past, before finally settling on this.
  • Pros: First of all , I would like to say that I have hated just about every past Norton Program. Apparently they finally started listening to their customers. -Starts Quickly -Low Resource Usage (even when not in gaming mode) -Unobtrusive Interface
  • Cons: The memory of every past Norton product i've used. Other than that, none.

Buyer Beware!! Just Wait til Renewal time....

Trent J., Newegg
14 July 2009
  • Summary: This will be the last Symantec product I ever buy. To completely halt an application because the AV definition subscription expired is absolutely no way to treat your 'customers'.
  • Pros: Did it's job where antivirus was concerned.
  • Cons: One computer took 4 months and 4 calls to Symantec to get working, while having issues uninstalling Norton AV 2006. The worst part is that now that the year is up, the entire application quits because I am not paying Symantec for antivirus updates. Since when does a locally installed application ...

I should have known better

Paul C., Newegg
1 July 2009
  • Summary: Nothing I could find on the Norton website indicated a compatibility problem. So I ordered the 3 user box. Will not install unless I uninstall Zone alarm which I am not doing. I stopped using Norton products years ago. I guess I should have known better!
  • Pros: can't say
  • Cons: Norton Antivirus 2009 is not compatible with Zonealarm Free

THE antivirus software for gamers

james s., Newegg
16 June 2009
  • Summary: I researched for a while to find the most gamer friendly antivirus and all the non biased reviewers agree it's this product by a long shot. Loads of options and great protection. Easily comprehensible interface and ships with instruction booklet.
  • Pros: Loads up in less than a miunte. New Egg's impeccable service. Cheaper than Norton's website. Gamer mode...nuff said.
  • Cons: NONE! NONE! NONE!

Vast improvement

Anonymous, Newegg
16 June 2009
  • Summary: I left Norton and went to Trend Micro years ago due to Norton being a resource hog. I'm glad I switched back.
  • Pros: Love the new GUI and quick scanning. Fast install and very low system resource usage. Much better than Trend Micro.
  • Cons: None

Major improvement

MiKeyes1, PriceGrabber
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.
  • 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.

  • Pros: New and improved; fast; lean and easy to install.
