Editors' Review

Norton Internet Security 2014 sits in the middle of Symantec's new line of premium anti-virus tools. It has the same comprehensive, real-time protection from viruses, malware, identity theft, and online scams as Norton AntiVirus, as well as 24/7 support, online software management, deep cleaning and repair, and a streamlined interface. Internet Security 2014 adds system performance tools, parental controls, an intelligent two-way firewall, and more. But it really earns its keep by protecting up to three PCs, making it a great choice for a family network or users with more than one computer.

Installing Norton Internet Security 2014 on another computer or upgrading from a previous Norton AntiVirus product is easy with your included Norton account, but new accounts are quick and easy to create, too. With its yellow-and-black theme and 3D rotation, Internet Security's user interface is attractive and up-to-date. A quick start guide described the program's four main advantages, starting with the Green Square, indicating a healthy PC and including the Norton Zone for secure Cloud sharing, Norton Mobile Security for smartphones, and Norton Family for keeping tabs on the kids. We could also back up important files with Norton Online Backup. Clicking "Support" uncovered Help, Support, and Tutorials in abundance. Internet Security comes with the kind of technical support that so-called free AntiVirus programs actually charge for. Be sure to check out the useful Settings. It's worth spending time configuring how Internet Security downloads and installs updates, excludes items, and protects your system in real time.

But first we needed a secure computer. A Red Square showed our PC was "At Risk," so we clicked "Fix Now" to activate Internet Security's smart Auto-Protect and SONAR Protection features. We always start new anti-virus tools with a full system scan. Norton's scan is deep and takes time, but you can run the Quick Scan (or a Custom Scan) for quicker daily runs. A Green Square showed our system was healthy and protected. The bottom line with premium anti-virus packages is always, "what's your system worth?" Multiply that by three, and you might come up with Norton Internet Security 2014.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Norton Internet Security 2014 20.1. The trial version is limited to 30 days.

"It is all a gentleman protection for computers."

July 23, 2014  |  By Fxp

Pros

In relation to its elegance, this combined with balance, few failures and false threats that are kept at the cutting edge with the convenience of the protection.

Cons

Not bad, in general. Only it must learn to use it.

Summary

Not bad, but can be improved even more.

"One of the Best on the Market"

May 31, 2014  |  By NXSF1Y

 |  Version: Norton Internet Security 2014 21.1.0.18

Pros

1. The program does what it says it does blocks all kinds of Malware from entering your PC.

2. Good Firewall that doesn't alert you on everything and will block things entering and exiting from the PC.

3. Easy to use and understand.

Cons

None that i can think of

Summary

The program will block all kinds of Malware from penetrating your PC that's a fact.
The Firewall is one of the best when set up right and less obtrusive works in the background.
Ive have an old windows XP still and the latest NIS 2014 and am happy to say virus clean even though XP no longer is being supported for updates by Microsoft.
For those that hates the program and gives it a bad rating and say they get viruses while using the program, all i have to say you must be idiots or noobs one to get infected with this program installed. Maybe watching too much porn or doing illegal activities or downloads that are getting you infected "Pirating". Everyone should know Malware/Trojans and such are not real viruses you can find the comparison online if you need to look it up. They are Malware but not a virus. Norton Handles Viruses not All forms of Malware as with all Internet Security Suites. Antivirus can block but not successfully removes every pieces of Malware that comes along which is vital to use a 2nd or 3rd program along side any security suite. I use NIS 2014 with malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware Pro and am free of Malware. IF something tries to get in one of the three programs picks it up and removes it before entry. No security suite should be used alone that's also fact. You can find all sorts of articles that explains what is Malware and what are virus and why you should use more than one program with an Antivirus. If you get infected a lot this day and age then you have a problem.

"not what is promised"

April 23, 2014  |  By miksutif

 |  Version: Norton Internet Security 2014 21.1.0.18

Pros

not better than other items like it.

Cons

The promise on the box is that it takes care of all viruses etc. I had a problem with malware, they did stuff and then wanted me to PAY $100 to be taken to experts to get this malware off my PC. I read them what the box said. No effect. I found a place on the internet that got rid of the malware for free, and it was no sneaking in the backdoor, it was right up front FREE. Norton wanted to know where and I would not tell them. They wanted to give me an extension on my purchase but I said for what, your product does not work. I just want everyone to know about Norton.

"Garbage!!!"

March 28, 2014  |  By Dr.EpSUN

 |  Version: Norton Internet Security 2014 21.1.0.18

Pros

I have paid for Norton several times and it is STILL USELESS!

Cons

I had a paid for Norton installation for last few months but Norton behaved like a drunk at a bar! I just knew I had serious virus problems as my computer behaved like a tortoise.
So I installed Panda Cloud Antivirus Free Edition and it Neutralised 40!!! problems including 2 severe trojans. Brillinat job recommend Panda Cloud Antivirus Free Edition to all!

Summary

Dont waste your money on Norton! = Buy something else

Updated on Mar 28, 2014

Here you can see part of the scan result.
Nortoon allowed all of this, but it was Panda who found it!
