"It just plain works."5.0 starson by s-micheaux
Pros: Very quick to install. Very good price from the Norton site. PC runs very fast. Looks great. Caught and removed umpteen bugs missed by my last product recommended by CNET.
Cons: It's so automatic, and can't find anything I dislike so far.
Summary: This new version of Norton Internet Security is nothing like the one that came with my HP laptop (2007 version). It is very fast, never intrudes, and looks great with the new styling. It found 17 bugs sitting on my PC that a well known Russian product missed and could not remove. My system seems much quicker and more responsive now as well.
I emailed Symantec about a Firewall question, and they answered in two hours with advice - for free. Perhaps the CNET reviewer should reconsider his stingy score. Still, it is the readers and users of this excellent product that really matter, and not CNET staff.
