Not tried it yet though, let me kow what you think.
Once had Norton System Works installed on my PC as recently as 2 months ago. Once I uninstalled it it was the start of a nightmare! Have you ever tried to uninstall a Symantec product? I am convinced that it became self perpetuating and parasitical. Had to go into the registry and delete all keys/strings related to Norton which took me ages. Even then Symantec live update refused to go easily....But eventually...Poooof,, it went. Never will I install a Symantec product again.
I have read lots of Norton Bashing in this and linked threads and to be honest a little confused. I use Norton internet security, AV, and system works. in the time I have been using them I have had not had a single problem with viruses, corruptions (at least those that Norton could do anything about)or anything. for a period I did move away from norton due purely to expense, in this time I tried a viriety of other programs all of which did not serve the purpose for which they were bought. So now im back using Norton and things are once again clean as a whistle. The problems with substitute programs were not caused my remnant norton bits and pieces as it was a fresh windows image they were installed upon. soo... why does everyone dislike norton? it does, in my experience, exactly what it says on the tin? what more does one want?
