Norton Internet Security 2010

  freaky 16:35 22 Mar 2010

Got 3 PC's using XP (SP3)and with Windows Live OneCare for security. Microsoft have decided to drop this program, and it will expire on my PC's on 22-04-10.

Have seen some good reviews on Norton 2010 and would like to hear from any members who are using it?

yeah Norton 2010 is good - really quick compared to previous versions. Doesn't affect computer tasks at all, unless doing background scanning. If you want to go back to what you were doing before without the background scanning hogging your CPU, you can just right click on the Norton icon in the system tray and select silent mode.
Don't really have anything bad to say about it, recommended from me. Think PCAdvisior have a review of Norton 2010 somewhere..

goto pca beta forum and read what testers said.

Many thanks for the replies......I'm inclined to buy Norton Internet Security Performance Pack. It covers 1 user with 3 PC's for 1 year, renewable annually.

It has everything as per Windows Live OneCare except for the backup facility, at the same annual charge.

Used Norton for many years, no complaint apart from the fact it was resource hungry, and difficult to uninstall.

I will leave this topic open for the time being.

Changed from McAfee to Norton I.S. 2010 in January. Seems fine. 2 minor annoyances - you can get really annoying popups at the bottom rh corner of your screen telling you that Norton is "performing background tasks" rather too often - although this has decreased recently on my pc's (an animated system tray icon like McAfee's would be much better - less intrusive); also there is no % complete readout when doing full scans, which McAfee had.

Norton Internet Security 2010 here and it's fine.

I'm still not convinced about the freebies.

MS Essentials has had excellent reviews & often come top of the list regardless of whether pay or free. when my Eset runs out I'm going for MS essentials.

That is interesting......apart from what Microsoft say, I have not seen any reviews. Can you supply any links?
