Customer Reviews:

  • NortonAV2009
    Norton AV 2009 is easy to install and set up. If you have any problems, call the help line and they will gladly assist in the set up. It runs flawlessly and I have not had any problems with it....more info
  • Great Value
    This is the same product that costs over twice as much from Norton and it does the exact same job! This is the 2nd time I have purchased this and I'm certain that I will buy it again when the current version expires....more info
  • Good Stuff
    I've always used Norton and once again the 2009 version doesn't disappoint. I got it at a really reasonable price, much cheaper than Walmart, Best Buy and even Symantec's own website. My wife and I surf on alot of different websites and using Windows these days its so easy to get a virus or malware/spyware on your pc. I am happy to report that I have been using Norton since 2003 and have not had one bad incident. I highly recommend....more info
  • Norton is its own virus
    A year ago, I purchased, downloaded and installed Norton AV to protect a new computer. However, my wifi connection is so sketchy (I live in a pretty rural area) that Norton's constatnt downloading and updating and scanning made my internet unusable. PLUS it did NOT stop trojans. I de-installed it and installed other shareware that works unobtrusively. HOWEVER, a year later Norton AUTOMATICALLY RENEWED ITSELF, charging me without authorization. Trying to get this charge reversed, NORTON CHARGED ME to speak with a representative--and this is their DEFAULT FOR CUSTOMER SUPPORT. They CHARGE YOU for EVERYTHING. BEWARE! Look around the web for other programs, Norton and Symantec are completely evil....more info
  • Still No Viruses, AND Norton now uses fewer resources
    I have been protecting my PCs and those of my family members with Norton Antivirus for about 10 years now. None of those computers have ever gotten a virus. Not one. That speaks volumes to me of the quality of the product.

    For the last few years I was getting a little bit annoyed by the resource usage of Norton Antivirus. That seems to be resolved in 2009. Thank you Norton for listening and fixing the problems. The CPU usage is consistently 0-3%; I noticed significant speed up of the computer when I upgraded from 2008-2009.

    So call me stupid or "uncool" or whatever the IT people think of Norton Antivirus users. But the track record of the antivirus software speaks for itself in my case; despite a much greater-than-average internet use, no viruses in over 10 years of PC use. So even if I have a pay a little bit of money instead of opting for one of the free or super-cheap alternatives, I will stick with Norton....more info

  • Much Improved for 2009, But At Least One Fatal Flaw Rears Its Head
    After years of running Norton Antivirus products, with ever increasing demands on system resources, as well as slowing down the machines these products were installed on, the completely rewritten version of Norton Internet Security 2009 has gone a very long way towards correcting years of bloatware code that was made worse with every new release.

    This version installs fast, runs fast, and is almost entirely unobtrusive, with one very major exception.

    This software will break your home or small business network.

    In a well-documented bug first discovered in October 2008, Norton interferes with, and eventually blocks access to other machines on your home network. Norton admits there is a problem, and has been stalling customers for months with promises for a fix, yet keeps pushing the release date out further and further.

    Install Norton 2009, and eventually all of the computers on your home network under My Network Places will disappear, and will eventually be blocked from access. While you can frequently manually reach your other networked machines by typing their addresses directly into an address bar, software that depends on access to your other networked machines directly (index, backup, small business collaboration tools, etc.) usually cannot work this way, and you are effectively cut off from using those applications. Worse, over time, Norton will begin periodically cutting off access to your networked machines. Suddenly file copying between machines fails, extremely long delays in accessing other computers on your network occurs, and your frustration level mounts.

    Norton admits the only current solution to this problem is to completely uninstall Norton 2009 Antivirus/Internet Security products. There is no other workaround.

    Worse yet, the responsiveness of the company to major software bugs has been less than acceptable. It literally takes months for even the most urgent bugs to get identified, corrected, and then put through a laborious test procedure. To add insult to injury, it then takes up to six additional weeks for the fixed code to be incorporated into their slow update release schedule and finally reach every customer.

    This truly mars an otherwise promising product and makes it an unacceptable option for those dependent on networked machines, such as a home or small business network. If you are dependent on your network to access remote hard drives or collaborate in an office environment, Norton 2009 products are absolutely not acceptable for use and I strongly recommend you look elsewhere until the company finally fixes the problem.

    A very lengthy discussion about this problem can be found on the Norton Community Forum. Simply search for "NAV blocks access to hard disk." The later discussions in the thread contain the most pertinent information....more info
    the price was right and the service was fast. I have used the Norton products for several years and found them an excellant fighter against viriuses....more info
  • Yes it did install - OK.
    Yes it did install - OK. That's the only reason it got 2 stars not one.
    Mine main system was working fine until Norton AV 2009 (I have not used Norton software since the 90's.) I thought I'll try it again for the first time. Probs. after probs., I am going to reinstall my system again MINUS Norton AV 2009 and reinstall AVV and we will see if it's the software or the hard drive... BUT I'm thinking it Norton AV 2009 is the prob. I have another partition with Ubuntu/Linux .. Yes I know why are you using Windows XP pro? Because of 90% of all software is written for Windows. I am playing "King Bounty the Ledgend" Side note: great game 4.5 stars, (I'm TRYING to play King Bounty)
    super quick save game(s) bat file, save the bat file in the {drive letter}:\Documents and Settings\%%user%%\My Documents\My Games

    copy "Kings Bounty" H:King_backup
    copy "Kings Bounty\$save\*" H:King_backup\$save
    echo off
