Information on Norton Internet Security Required

  spuds 18:24 29 Sep 2014

Having just had a recent infection on the computer, that was apparently packaged with another download, I am looking into possible better internet security.

A number of Internet Security programmes have been suggested as 'the best' from a Google search and reviews. Norton Internet Security seems a good selection to consider.

Do you use this product, if so, would you recommend it without reservation. Or would you consider something 'better.

I am using free versions of Avast, SuperAntiSpyware on the infected machine, and previously I found that these have covered my needs in great form.

I did look at some PCA reviews, and a product that I have never heard of before caught my eye - Qihoo 360 Internet Security 4.3. But doing a search, seems to bring different opinions about this particular piece of software.

I have used Norton Internet Security for some few years now after it was recommended here. Prior to this I had shied away from Norton as it had been exceedingly bloated and the number of problems that I have had with their help(?)line.

It runs in the background without interfering with productivity.

Would definitely recommend.

Once you have downloaded something in a package its past your defenses whatever you have.

There are several threads on this site bemoaning the demise of safe sites to download from.

I shy away from Norton as 360 locked up my drive and I needed to restore from an image. Plus the on going annual subscriptions are high.

For any AV

To pay or not to pay? That is the question :0)

I have used norton security since windows95. Its good so is its support with a very ood online live chat help and can access your pc to fix too.

most makes are good, but its the support that counts when there is problem.

For anyone interested in Norton Internet Security, then check out Argos for prices, they are having half price sales on some software.

I will now tick this post, but you might find my last comments a few moments ago on the following post interesting. Other post click here
