Pros NIS 2010 takes security to the next level..every click matters ..it definitely does!
The download intelligence feature is the best and as I download so many softwares, it protects me by warning me before install.
Cons The identity safe feature can be improved...it works well, but i feel it can be improved.
Summary All the security software haters who go for free software's should definitely try this product. Its just amazing security and light on the system. I did not notice any delays or slowness once I installed this. I have this running on 3 machines now and no problems so far!
Pros Norton Internet Security 2010 is fast!
Cons Norton Internet Security 2010 is fast!
Summary Norton Internet Security 2009 was a great upgrade. NIS 2010 is even better. It installed super quick and it runs even faster than the last version. This may be a bit technical, but CPU and memory usage is almost non-existant which I think is why it runs so fast.
I'm running it on Vista Ultimate (on a 64bit laptop) and Vista Home (on a 32 bit laptop). It works great on both.
I recommend it.
Pros Very fast processing of files. Mostly transparent activity. Doesn't noticeably slow your system down.
Cons With their 2009 product, Norton started causing the ENTIRE NAV package to not load when your subscription expires. Previously, you simply could not download updates. Not so anymore. If you don't upgrade, you are without ANY virus protection.
Summary I've used Norton for well over a decade on dozens of computers, and have not regretted it until recently. When I learned the hard way about the whole program expiring when the subscription was up, I started switching all of my computer and my clients over to another package when their current subscription is up. That's just horrible business practice.
I hope Symantec wakes up and changes this behavior, as they have an otherwise great product.
Pros Manage 9 systems, it is convenient to use. When working properly it auto updates and is constantly protecting the computers. With 3 different Microsoft platforms and offsite systems we need this type of security. Excellent Tech Service.
Cons Have to reboot after downloading updates as there may be others that do not download until reboot. Periodically shuts off antivirus or does not load at boot.
Summary Four years ago we quit using Norton. After reading PCMAG reviews in 2008 we came back and tried again. This is a big improvement over previous editions.
Technical support is excellent.
Pros Amazing security
New features like the File insight and the performance feature gives a good insight to your PC performance.
Fast..fast..unobtrusive..and did I mention fast :)
Cons None so far.
Summary Amazing product. I dont mind paying for such amazing features and a product that give me full security. I did have a free security product on my machine before and got infected and had to have paid protection that works!!
