Pros: I tend to be very cautious on my computer (some may say paranoid) and yet this has still caught some things and it doesn't get in the way (though my computer is so fast that might have something to do with it).
Summary: I was supposed to get a $40 prepaid visa card rebate with the purchase of this product. When I tried to use it, just days after I received it in the mail, the card only had $33 on it. Last time I buy a symantec product with any kind of rebate.
Summary: I'm not sure if my troubles came from having a 64-bit Win7 system. Or perhaps it's because I was "downgrading" from Norton 360 (v4) to Norton Internet Security. In any case, the installation completely mangled my PVR setup.
Pros: - It's a Norton product with a decent reputation. - Free after Mail-In Rebate
Cons: - Corrupted my DVD and Blu-Ray drivers - Corrupted WinTV Capture card driver - Removed all of my custom program settings (ex: WMC plugins were no longer installed, NAS control software disappeared) - Blue screened during installation, corrupting my boot sectors and threw my machine into an endles...
Summary: I have used Norton Internet Security for a couple of years now, since it became so vastly improved. I purchased this for a friend on a promotion, and it was a terrific deal. I hope Norton can keep up the great work and remain competitive and a leader.
Pros: Very smooth running application vs the resource hog Norton used to be a few years ago. The features on this Software have saved me more then once from website hijacking and other malicious threats.
Cons: There seem to be a couple of other competitors that have gained higher marks in reviews over the last year, but I will stick with Norton for now.
Pros: As an IT I have worked with McAfee and Nortons anti-virus and I'll take Norton Anti-Virus over McAfee anytime. In fact, working on PCs on my own time, I make more money when someone has chosen McAfee for there anti-virus.
Summary: I have been using NIS continuously since 2003. I have used some other makes and still use it on some of the lesser used computers in house, this thing blows all of them away. Its the least resource consuming internet security software out there but Norton does not stop there, it continuously keeps...
Pros: Fast install Fast Updates Does not slow down computer Does everything the that the others do without draining your comp's resources
