"Norman sucks!"

February 26, 2014  |  By Senor_Ekt0r

 |  Version: Norman Malware Cleaner 2014.1.14

Pros

I had not one good experience.

Cons

Will destroy your Windows machine, that's all.

Summary

February 26, 2014

For Windows 7, on a Gateway PC.

For some reason, the new version of Spybot just didn't make me feel secure. I've been using it for yeeeeears! So I decided to switch. WHAT A MISTAKE THAT WAS!!! Downloaded Norman yesterday and ran a thorough scan, I had the scan settings set for high and extreme threats only. It took hours to complete, this is a fairly new computer and doesn't have much loaded on it yet. It consumed so much cpu and memory for the clean up I basically couldn't use the computer (there was no setting for priority on the program nor any allowance to lower the priority in the processes). But after the reading the reviews, I chalked this minor set back as the price to pay for a better cleaner. Wrong! Once it finished scanning for "threats", it automatically cleaned out the "threats"; there was only 8 "threat" that it found (I've literally had this computer for two weeks, didn't expect much to show up).

The fun came once I rebooted the computer which, was right after the scan.
Everything booted up as expected except for one tiny, minuscule, microscopic fact. There was no desktop. I mean, I literally had a white cursor floating in a black screen. Control+alt+delete worked just fine, but I still couldn't get any desktop controls, icons, background, etc. I finally rebooted, went into pre-Window load settings and selected last known good configuration. One of the few times I'm glad that Windows actually does something right. Got everything back, deleted Norman from programs. GOOD RIDDANCE!
