    "One time star..."

    October 15, 2011  |   By lethal57


    Nortons/Symantec, were great 10 yrs ago, then lost the plot and tried to be everything to everyone, Unfortunely NIS at this time decided to get into every nook and cranny of a users pc..almost impossible to remove. The latest NIS (which was recommended to me) promises to be simpler, however I find it a little daunting and convaluted.


    As I mentioned convaluted and daunting. No local help file (just the ones on the web which ARE indeed easy to use). The jury is out whether it can be an effective anti-spy, anti-malware, Firewall and AV program, without again going down the wrong road. For a paid app I would expected much much more, and some guarantees.


    Undecided about the app, and too early to tell if it can be what nortons once was.
