Over the years I have left Norton Internet products alone due to their previous heavy resource hogging. But now they seem to have improved and they win all the awards. My problem is do I go for the Antivirus or the Internet Security. At the moment the Internet security is cheaper than the Antivirus from Norton. Any suggestions appreciated.
"but I would prefer just one internet security program."
Go to Norton's site, and find the 2010 trial download. While you're there, get the Norton Removal Tool.
Make sure all 3rd party security software are uninstalled. Then install and play with the (15 days?) trial. Not happy? Uninstall and then use the NRT. If happy, make some gold, prince midas, and buy your bargain "subscription". Use the purchased key to activate. Good for one year. Look for bargains again as the subscription nears expiration.
I'm using it now. It can be used as is, or you can reconfigure it to your situation. There's also a good peer-to-peer Norton forum with helpful users, along with occasional visits from Symantec employees to the forum.
It's not like the free tools will take off and not come back if you look about for alternatives. :-)
but the Internet Security 2009 (NIS 2009) version, you can get that from £15.00. When you have the key, download the NIS 2010 and use that.
Norton have decided to upgrade 2009 users to the 2010 version for whatever reason. the NIS 2010 suite is licensed for 3 pc's so if you have more than one PC this is a good solution if you want a Norton Product.
Awhile ago I bought a new laptop which as you would expect came with Norton installed. First job after booting the computer up was to remove Norton. As others have said free is better, like AVG and Zone alarm.
