I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the lack of impact on system performance. At no time did I think that things were sluggish and it was down to Norton. I haven’t noticed it was there.
I’ve experienced a couple of minor annoyances which I’ve mentioned in the appropriate threads but providing the main one was fixed I would be happy to continue using it for the subscription period. I’m not fully used to the interface yet but would get to know it sufficiently to be able to track down any of the settings I need. I would have liked more control over when to run a particular task and have turned off a few features I’m not interested in, notably ‘backup’.
However I’ve been happy over the years with the free version of either AVG or Avast and wouldn’t pay anything close to £50 for an annual subscription, not because I don’t think it’s worth it but because the free versions meet all my needs. I use only the router and Windows firewalls and don’t feel the need for another. I’m also happy with Spybot and the occasional use of another mainstream but free anti-spyware tool. For those who insist on paying for a complete protection package then I would highly recommend it.
