    "EZ & Effective - I LOVE My Norton 360!!"

    December 9, 2014  |   By hawk 101

    Version: Norton 360 21.1.0.18

    Pros

    EZ install, does most tasks automatically, great on-line chat & phone support, can install it on up to 3 devices, constantly monitoring your internet connection and downloads. Automatic virus updates & scans of firewall, facebook page etc. Automatically runs "reputation" scans of programs before you download from the internet and alerts you to possible threats. The back-up portion has "pulled my bacon out of the fire" on a few occasions.

    Cons

    Can be "balky" during download/installation form the internet, get the cd instead.
    A small "free" "back-up" cloud.
    For PC's you'll need to buy more "cloud" space - OR Blue Ray discs - OR an external drive.
    For laptops you may get away with a couple of DVD's or a thumb drive.

    Summary

    Well worth the money, "best bang for your buck"

    "Avoid at all costs"

    September 29, 2014  |   By iansmccarthy

    Version: Norton 360 21.1.0.18

    Pros

    Comprehensive package WHEN it works

    Cons

    Unstable, repeatedly had to uninstall and reinstall with no alerts that it was no longer functioning.
    Backup function worse than useless. When my hard drive crashed I couldn't restore from the Norton backup

    A few weeks ago it crashed again and I uninstalled it. When I tried to reinstall it I got a message that I had to "chat" to a technician! Somebody in India then told me that I had to allow him to take remote control to reinstall Norton?! When I refused he told me that I appeared to have malware on my computer. I don't see how he would have known. Apparently if you cede control they will "find" a virus and then charge $99 to clean it. Very dubious behaviour

    Summary

    Avoid

    "Wanna Be Cuffed?"

    August 1, 2014  |   By SorinAcela

    Version: Norton 360 21.1.0.18

    Pros

    It strives to protect.

    Cons

    It ties your hands big time.
    Die Hard - hard to uninstall.

    Summary

    It is a catastrophe! It "protects" you so well that practically it ties your hands almost completely. It blocks everything so most apps become crippled. Your network connection may become hardly unusable. When you try to modified settings, you get lost in the entanglement of its stupid design (that from a long-time computer user). Even when you want to get rid of it, you cannot just uninstall that! You need a special "Norton Removal Tool"!
