Norton 360 - Are there any happy users?

  Maczed 11:20 08 Apr 2007

My Norton anti-virus is up for renewal and I'm thinking of upgrading to Norton 360. I've just been reading the User Reviews in Amazon and they're pretty mixed; a few users are pleased, but many think it's the worst thing that Norton has ever released. Are there any happy users out there? Does anyone recommend it?

Thanks handy4x. AVG may be my choice, but it depends on the replies I get to my Norton 360 query.

For what it's worth I've used Norton products for years because they were the 'No. 1' but I've never been wholly happy and comfortable with them. This week I have taken the plunge, after reading recent reviews of Norton and other products, including 360, and switched to Kaspersky. Will consider looking at Norton again (as I will Vista after SP1, at least, and possibly SP2) when real users, like you and I, and not reviewers and publicists have started reporting on its performance and peculiarities out in the unpredictable domestic world.

Quite right, Searson. I'm hoping that I might get some responses from 'real' users of Norton 360.
