Norton renew or upgrade?

  Grambo 21:56 14 Mar 2003

My Norton 2002 AV is due to expire. I have the options thru Symantec to either renew, update to 2003 or update to Internet Security 2003. I noticed there where a few extra features on the last option (spam filtering, ad blocking etc) including firewall. Im using XP which has firewall anyway. So the Q is what option would be best for home use

I..personally would just renew..depends on what use you put Pc to..
But there must be trial versions online or on mags?

I have chosen to updgrade to Internet Security 2003 - altho' I haven't actually installed it yet. I am waiting until my NAV 2002 expires in a weeks time.

I thought it worthwhile to spend slightly more to upgrade than renew my subscription - but its your choice!

Apparently the XP firewall has to be disabled on before NIS 2003 is installed, but I believe the NIS firewall is more comprehensive than the XP one anyway.
