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!!
Summary: People that used Norton many years ago are still afraid to try their newer products. No review will convince them that this is not the resource hog it used to be. But really, it uses little system resources, works quietly in the background and sets up very easily. And every August, it will update to newer version with all your subscription days left. You just need to purchase the newer key code before it expires. Always seems to be on sale somewhere after January.
Pros: Top rated suite. Won't stop everything but it sure has saved my bacon more than once. I avoided using the "identity safe" feature for internet logins in the past, but tried it last year. Sorry I didn't use it sooner. Wonderful feature worth it's weight in gold for storing and using site logins and passwords.
Cons: Must call or chat with customer service to have days left on subscription added to new subscription. I do this every year and they add them with no questions asked. You could wait until a day before it expires but this works okay.
