It killed my computer

Nolan H., Newegg
8 October 2009
  • Summary: I don't know if the software works or not. It is good at causing system failures. Even on a clean install (thought it might be a conflict) still caused mass system failure. Product needs to go back to beta.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: Would give negative stars if possible. Wasted 6 hours with tech support after computer was totally hosed from the upgrade. Would not return multiple emails. Had to do a total format to fix all the problems. A total waste of a week and I big pain.

Excellent Protection!

Barbara H., Newegg
18 September 2009
  • Pros: The newest version of Norton is really terrific. They've addressed the problems they used to have with their software slowing down a system. No more. I've seen comments from people who don't agree, but unless you're running a system that is 6+ years old, you won't see any slowdowns from this soft...
  • Cons: It's currently out of stock at newegg :(

XP 64 USERS BEWARE!!!

Jeff F., Newegg
13 September 2009
  • Summary: I was a legacy user of Norton products, starting back in The Day, even before Windows came along. They were a respected, top-notch provider of utility and protection software. Then their products evolved over time to become massive bloatware, and I and many others abandoned them in favor of other...
  • Pros: None come to mind, as it was never installed.
  • Cons: This product is not compatible with XP Pro 64-bit. Do not spend your money on this thing. The packaging does not specifically state that it is incompatible with XP Pro 64-bit. I had to spend my money, uninstall my previous protection software, and begin installation of this product before it info...

NORTON, NORTON, NORTON!!

John M., Newegg
11 September 2009
  • Summary: I installed this on four different machines and have used it for two months. I am now uninstalling it. I could deal with the constant scans which dramatically slow down performance, but I cannot stand the constant popups. Popups, popups, popups. Norton is doing this. Norton is doing that.
  • Pros: Didn't catch a virus with this installed.
  • Cons: Didn't catch a virus because this product made it difficult and frustrating to use the computer at all.

Absolute trash

James D., Newegg
25 August 2009
  • Pros: Nothing this product is one big STINKER!!!!!!
  • Cons: Got a bad virus right after installing this and had to redo my harddrive. Now I am getting "framework" errors and it shuts down the program. They have a fix but it will not download to my computer!!! This is my fault for giving Symantec another try, this program is going in the trashcan and I vow...

I like it!

Jeffrey P., Newegg
15 August 2009
  • Pros: I am using this product on a newer dual core athlon computer and an older single core sempron computer. I had been using Trend Micro Antivirus for several years and I noticed it was definitely starting to bog the older system down considerably. I decided to switch to Norton Antivirus and now the ...
  • Cons: It wasn't free!

User Review

Tung L., Newegg
6 August 2009
  • Summary: It seems like a lot of people haven't really use Norton IS 2009 and just start writing negative reviews based on their experience with older versions of Norton. Reading some of the reviews here on Newegg, it seems like some people are just here to bash Symantec and promote their own shady...
  • Pros: Norton is now low on resources (unlike older versions). Norton takes up zero % of my cpu resource while in the background and only about 2-9% while running a full scan. Nice looking interface. Better than free anti-virus because this has firewall. Firewall is much better than windows firewall tha...
  • Cons: not free
