Summary: I had Norton 2 years ago , no issues , this edition I just want to scream. But , hey, thank you for UNINSTALL button.
Pros: I got it with rebate , so it was free, which proves the sentence that everything free is not always a good deal.
Cons: Where to start? Ahhh,, my Google browser totally busted, my "protection period" is constantly stopped and questioned. I also got the WinZip with it same issue.."you do not have a valid license" etc etc .. I am sick tired of this program . You can not kill it with right click but need to go into m...
Summary: You'd expect a big company like Symantec to be up to date. They're not.
Pros: It locks down your computer and prevents attacks.

Cons: NewEgg is sending out 2012 version of NIS when it advertises the 2013 version.
Summary: le produit ne contenait pas la clé nécéssaire pour que le produit soit installé, si bien que j'ai été obligé de racheter un produit en ligne. dans la boite, il n'y avait pas le mode d'emploi, ni l'autocollant avec le numéro de clé du produit sur l'enveloppe du cd.je ne m'en suis pas apercue tout de...
