Norton Antivirus 2006 or Norton Internet Security?

  PC_HelpMe 18:59 11 Aug 2006

I just upgraded my Norton Antivirus to the 2006 package for £34.99. I have since discovered that if I had bought Norton Internet Security 2006 I could have had, not only the Antivirus which is on that too, but also Firewall protection and lots of other stuff - for just an extra £15. I'm not impressed. Is there any reason why these 2 packages are on sale at the same time (aside to someone maybe just wanting Antivirus on their computer)? Am I missing something?? Can anybody out there put my mind at rest, or have I been diddled?

The only reason the two products are on sale at the same time is as you say, for people who just want Antivirus protection and don't want to pay more money for products they may already have. I can't really put your mind at rest, but an extra £15 is really not worth it when there are plenty of free security products out there that work just as well.
