- Cheap, Work Good
I have been using Norton products for several years, and my PCs have always been virus free (as long as they didn't run out of subscription). Norton products have, in the past, had a tendency to be a little under engineered. I just purchased Antivirus 2009 a few weeks ago. I have to tell you, so far I am completely satisfied.
* Easy to install, the hardest part was typing in the product key.
* Automatically scans and updates without prompting you to do it.
* Cheap, cheaper than the competition anyway.
* Runs silently and stealthily in the background.
* Has an excellent two-way firewall.
* Detected viruses and removed them during installation.
* Is not a Microsoft Product. Philosophically, it seems unwise to buy a program from an operating system supplier to protect your computer from vulnerabilities in their operating system. Like having the hens guard the hen house. On the other hand, who understands Windows defects better than Microsoft?
* Did not automatically remove Norton Internet Security 2008, even though its subscription had expiered. NIS had to be removed manually first. This should be automated.
- Install problems
Advanced protection did not work on one of the computers. After numerous hours of on-line chat with Symantec tech support they could not resolve the problem, said there was no virus or other malicious software on the computer and suggested I pay $90 for the next level of support. $90 to fix their problem is more than the software cost. Also, it created a conflict with Power Desk 7 which was resolved by Power Desk not Symantec. Bottom line, I removed it from all 6 of our computers and for less than the cost of Symantec support I went back to using CA's AntiVirus which has been problem free for 5 years. ...more info
- Speedy relief
Man, oh, man are the other reviewers right about Norton 360. It slowed my computer down to a crawl. They were also right about this streamlined product being less of a drag on the computer's resources. Look at the product description and you'll see it does all the things you're likely looking for in computer security. And it doesn't hang over your shoulder all the time like 360, telling you that some horrible threat is lurking. Balderdash! If Antivirus 2009 can't do it, then neither can 360. Think the on-line backup you get with 360 is a nifty feature? Remember that lasts only as long as you subscription. A rewritable DVD lasts longer....more info
- Had a little trouble installing
Product works fine after the installation which gave me a bit of trouble.
Had previously been running Norton Internet Security 2008.
I did un-install NIS before loading the new AV2009, yet ran into unexpected dialog box looking for SimIM.sys.
It was looking for this driver in:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\SymNetDrv
where Norton Internet security had the file orginally.
At first I though it was confused, but after searching the hard drive
found the file in the AV2009 directory:
C:\program files\Norton Antivirus\Engine\184.108.40.206\SymIM
Don't know why it was looking in the wrong place, but finding the driver in the AV directory suggested it was suppose to be a part of AV2009.
So I pointed the dialog at this directory and the remainder of the install progressed just fine.
Been running on 2 computers for 1 week now w/o any problems.
- Good product
Delivered in a timely manner. Works as advertised. No incompatibility problems. No problems with viruses (so far)....more info
- fast fast fast
so yeah i have this.
pros: faster than 2008
downloads new updates every few minutes!!!!!!!!
it tells you how much your computer is usiing vs. the norton product
you can safely store my credit cards and stuff in there
ohh takes less than a second after you click to show up rather than maybe 5 seconds or whatever
id have to say its a much needed upgrade!!!!!!!!...more info

I like the norton antivirus and being able to install it myself. The only issue that i really have is that--when i first put the item in the hold cart it was less than forty dollars and when i got ready to purchase it --the price went up and once i received it and i looked itn up again --it had went back down around thirty-eight dollars--i felt like that was beat up--it makes me think twice about ordering any more products again......more info
