"Disappointing"

September 01, 2015  |  By Jvben3

 |  Version: Norton Security with Backup 22.5.2.15

Pros

none - the new upgrade from Norton Internet Security to Norton security is a bust.

Cons

The new Norton Security upgrade from Norton Internet Security is a dangerous product. I have been using Save2PC for several years; but recently Symantec "upgraded" NIS to NS automatically without notice. When I ran Save2PC, NS popped up a message "this program is dangerous and has been deleted". NS removed a program I paid cash for, from my machine and gave me no opportunity to intervene. Nor is there an option to restore it. Symantec automatically renewed my subscription and charged me $87+ even though you get a cd/dvd copy for substantially less. Symantec has made the web site impossible to complain through or contact for refunds.

Summary

Beware of the new Sumantec/Norton Security - you may loose many older programs because of their presumption and arrogance.

"It is all a gentleman protection for computers."

July 23, 2014  |  By Fxp

 |  Version: Norton Internet Security 2014 21.1.0.18

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!

"My go to security app since 2008"

March 08, 2014  |  By My_Computer_Guy

 |  Version: Norton Internet Security 2013 20.1

Pros

It's intuitive easy to set up (it will even automatically remove out dated or incompatible software, you shouldn't run two antivirus programs at the same time)
Some people don't like things in the suite, TURN THEM OFF.
If you don't like Identity Safe (I do) go to "Settings" and it's the 3rd box down, uncheck it, DONE
I don't like the monthly report I uncheck it DONE.
It has Norton Insight, which checks programs on your computer and locks certain ones down; now a full scan of your computer consists of about 10% of the hard drive.
If its running a scan and you start to use the computer it pauses and waits until your computer is idle to finish.
I know some people don't like the BIG guy, Walmart, Mcd, Microsoft Norton just because they are BIG.

Cons

Well I get it free from Comcast so I don't see any.

Summary

I set up and repair computers. I get Norton free from Comcast (you can too if you are a customer) BUT I would pay for it!
I make good money removing virus and Trojans from computers and 98% of the ones I work on don't use Norton, they use free antivirus programs for the most part, and pay for it in the end.
