Great

22 November 2014
  • Pros: Works well. Some people do not want to pay for Av/FW, but this works well and computers with it are in better shape than others with free.

Not for me

John M., Newegg
1 October 2014
  • Summary: I had this on a computer years ago and it stunk then too. I only tried it because it was a deal, but I guess not. I have this on 3 PC's and Bitdefender on 3 pc's. Bitdefender works great.
  • Pros: Blocks viruses I guess.
  • Cons: Constantly want's "me to "get your Norton tool bar back" . Half the time it shows that a website is safe to visit with a green check mark the other half it doesn't. Lately it's slowed my computer down considerably. Hate it !

Security Required

Troy F., Newegg
2 September 2014
  • Summary: Can usually be found on sale for a reasonable price. Does a good job.
  • Pros: Fairly good product for Internet Security, whereas security is required for almost everything if you're going on-line to use the internet. Does a good job, as long as you keep it updated.
  • Cons: Depending on your system, this security software can be a little heavy at times. It seems a bit heavier than some of its competition.

Norton internet Security 2014 3 PC's

Stan F., Newegg
23 August 2014
  • Pros: I switch between Norton internet security & Norton 360 they both work equally well. I purchase by price & usually have a spare around of either & also purchase for friends & family. Symantec has come a long way from Norton System works which as far as I was concerned was a disaster having to rein...

Solid Product

Stefan O., Newegg
11 August 2014
  • Summary: Even with the Razer-Norton conflicts, I enjoy this product. And at $20 it was a steal.
  • Pros: * Bought it on a massive sale @ only $20! * Low resource hogging * Nice Silent Mode for gaming * Daily AV updates * Includes Firewall
  • Cons: * Razer Synapse problems, If you own a Razer Kraken headset, you'll need to use a trick or Norton will crash without end. Disable Synapse on startup, load windows, log off and re-enter. Now you can safely start Synapse and Norton won't crash for infinity. Not a dealbreaker, but certainly an annoy...

weighs down my computer

Amelia P., Newegg
11 August 2014
  • Pros: Fends off bad stuff. Branded product so presumably Norton invests effort in making sure this works.
  • Cons: Doesn't fend off Cryptolocker, makes my computer respond sluggishly. I am really thinking hard about whether this is better than the free alternatives.

Need to be better at catching malware, etc.xxx

Andrew B., Newegg
30 June 2014
  • 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.

Satisfied as expected

Jerry K., Newegg
29 May 2014
  • 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. I returned after it was slimmed down and speedee up (2010 or so). I am happy that I did; I use it across ~ 5-8 platforms in the office/household and recommend it to colleagues and those ...
  • Cons: It is not perfect; no protection suites are; see below..

Symantec NIS 2014 - 3 PC's

Warren R., Newegg
5 May 2014
  • Pros: I feel safe with NIS on my PC's. What else can I say?
  • Cons: Could have just used a download of NIS but it was more expensive. I'll stay with the boxed version.
