Editors' Review

This application protects against attempts to steal personal data, although its monitoring results were hit-or-miss. Norton Confidential is a pretty lengthy download, requiring 31 MBs to operate. After entering your name and other personal info for the installation, you'll receive the program's download link via e-mail.

Its vibrant interface is easy to program for protection against phishing. The program, which works with Internet Explorer, reveals any efforts to steal information by displaying a suspicious site message on its toolbar. A stat report of fraudulent sites and suspicious programs is given, along with some basic security suggestions to guard your PC.

Beyond just giving tips, it actually blocks fraudulent sites from gathering your personal log-in information. Unfortunately, we frequently received engine error messages on the toolbar rather than accurate site analyses, and we were encouraged to restart our browser to no effect. Norton Confidential also slowed Web surfing and Windows, and was even slow at uninstalling itself. With some of its efforts ineffective, this 15-day trial may not always provide the reliability you need to fight the war against identity theft.
