Summary: I have no idea what to plan on using next. I've read reviews and I don't see a clear "winner" with the best anti-virus, firewall, malware, etc protection.
Pros: I've been using Norton Internet Security since 2003. I did try another product once for a year but went back to Norton again. I used to always recommend this to family and friends. It doesn't even catch obvious spam in Outlook anymore.
Cons: Now It doesn't seem to be anywhere near as reliable at detecting malware, viruses and trojans as my malware software. All it ever seems to find are "tracking cookies" and that's only if I haven't run my cookie cleaner when it does a quick scan.
Summary: Works as promised. Since there is no perfect totally comprehensive protection, I use NIS in tandem with IOBit's Advanced System Care. With these two I feel well protected and seem to have little trouble.
Pros: I stopped using Norton Internet SEcurity and 360 several years ago whenn it grew to be a bloated resource hog.
Cons: It is not perfect; no protection suites are; see below..
Excerpt: Software installs reasonably quickly, without hassles. Seems to provide excellent protection from all sorts of Web/Internet hazards, with very little RAM overhead; i.e., it doesn't seem to slow the machine's other operations or boot time.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Inobtrusive

Excerpt: This review is more about B & H sales/service than the product. B & H has been our source for the past dozen years for Norton software because B & H consistently delivers the product at the best price and fast delivery! Thanks, B & H!!
