    "Too many false positives and slow"

    August 2, 2010  |   By physicist666

    Pros

    Ok interface, has many guards but this is just bloatware in my opinion

    Cons

    ->Too many false positives. Flags files as malware when they are clean. Checked on virustotal.com
    ->Too many guards. Simplify.
    ->Slow at times to boot, and watch hi def .mkv files.
    ->Switched right back to ESET NOD32 fast & BEST PROACTIVE RATES!

    Summary

    Ditch this and move over to ESET NOD32. Used for many years without failure. Just install it and forget its there on your computer...Yes its that lightweight.

    your wrong
    I have never seen even one false positive from norton and what do you mean by too many guards.. it has insight and sonar. ESET is no where near norton now.
