    "depends what u want really"

    May 23, 2010  |   By cnetprofessionalUPDATED

    Version: Norton Internet Security 2010

    Pros

    - pleasant GUI similar to previous versions of norton and other products by norton
    - compresensive scans, smart scans, quick scans are all very thorough
    - personal firewall
    - norton file insight - (suspicious file activity-other user download no etc

    Cons

    - too many false positives..p2p files is defintely a no go if u want it to keep calm
    - massive pc slowdown...eats up your ram and basically hogs all your computer resources

    Summary

    Overall norton internet security is definitely recommended by me because for the features you get it is highly worthwhile for the price you pay.
    Its real time protection and full pc scan remove viruses, rootkits, trogans, spyware, malware...and provides many internet features:
    -site recommendation
    -identity protection
    -email scan
    -anti phishing
    Iv tried many security software such as trend micro, kaspersky, avg, bitdefender...all of these are great products, however they lack that little bit of protection that norton has to offer. Norton say that 'many computers scaned with norton that were deemed safe by other security software have been found to have some issues' - and this is completely true.
    Yes it is true that norton do have quite a few false positives, but its always better to be safe than sorry.

    "Norton Security 2010 Is not about hype. It's a winner!"

    May 11, 2010  |   By Jns1

    Version: Norton Internet Security 2010

    Pros

    The graphic display in performance mode, or flip mode has got to be my most favorite tool. It is most effective in displaying usable graphic icons that show additional features.

    Cons

    There is nothing I dislike about the software, or the online world wide staff support, who are very responsible, knowledgeable, and professional in solving problems I can not solve on my own.

    Summary

    The scan features are the next most important features I use. Having three distinctive ways to scan my computer is powerful, and very effective at exposing hidden intrusions. Keep up the great work.

    "I just Love it"

    May 11, 2010  |   By neomarcman

    Version: Norton Internet Security 2010

    Pros

    Easy to use and install, love the Norton toolbar.

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    Used to be with Mcafee but no more now I'm with Norton and couldn't be happier. Doesn't hog memory, protects my computer from almost every threat around. It's worth paying 59.99 a year for this.
