5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than previous version(s) April 10, 2009
By S. Kim
I first started using Norton 360 on my laptop running Windows XP and it was pretty awful. It would always "ding" an alert or notice on every legitimate web site or online retailer. In addition, my laptop became terribly s-l-o-w. So bad in fact I thought it was my memory, and even with a memory upgrade it was crawling along. After that experience, I evolved into a new laptop running Windows Vista and bought Kaspersky Internet Security. This was a total disaster. Kaspersky, in my experience, is total junk! EVERY web page and browsing experience was blocked with so many "threat" notices that I had to disable it just to use Internet explorer. Not even Mozilla Firefox had a chance. So, in need of relief, I saw this "new" version of Norton 360. I removed the Kaspersky and installed Norton 360 Version 3.0 (As of April 8, 2009 be careful what you buy, when I was shopping, many stores were still carrying the older 2.0 version.) I did cautiously backup my system before installing this, and after installing it; it pretty much works as described. It will keep log-ins, and passwords stored within its program for various sites, like Amazon.com for example and these are password protected.
What is more noticeable to me, over my past experience with Norton 360 Version 1.0 is the "diet" the software has undergone. On my laptop, again running Windows Vista, (two years old) there does not appear to be any lag, or sluggishness, and you could argue it is faster than when Kaspersky was running. At first I thought the protection was not running, but it is, and I don't notice it.
As far as options, there is a Premier Version 3.0 and a "plain" Version 3.0. The main difference, as you see on the back of the box, is an upgrade in online storage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great all-in-one security suite May 9, 2009
Pros:
-Intrusion prevention/Auto-protect (Firewall)
-Virus scanner with the largest database among all virus scanners
-Heuristics scanner that makes even Kaspersky jealous
-Other security features (Email scanning, browser settings check, network address check)
-File backup
-Disk defragger
-Temp file removal
-Registry scanner
-Does all of the above automatically while your computer is idle
-Has a full gamut options to fully control what 360 can and cannot do

Cons:
-Price
-Backup will only backup files, it will not make an image of the disk. This means that if you have a hardware failure you will have to reinstall windows + every program you own
-People claim it's a resource hog but my Norton 360 is currently consuming 00% CPU cycles and 10mb RAM. It does consume a lot of resources during a scan but that's why you're supposed to let it run automatically while your computer is idle
-People claim it is hard to uninstall. This though is false, Symantec has a program on their website that will uninstall it completely for you or you can use a program like Uninstall Tool

In order to copy all of the features of Norton 360 with different programs you would need to pay for an internet security application, backup application, and a "PC Tuneup" application. I actually didn't want to use Norton but it saved me money over buying those three programs individually and allows them to run automatically saving me the trouble of setting up run schedules and making sure my computer is on during those scheduled times.

I've installed Norton 360 on 3 different computers and none of them have experienced any of the problems that all these 1-star reviews did. One of the computers is even a POS laptop with barely any resources and it runs fine.

Norton 360 does not contain or use the program "PIFTS.exe" which is the purported executable that Symantec uses to "spy" on people.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Computer Science with a Minor in Security and Forensics. I feel qualified to speak about this product as a professional in the field. I am not an "expert" because I do not work in the "Virus" scanning or software field, and I do not work for Norton. But I am a professional in the field of Computer Science and Computer Security.

Note: I am putting the word "virus" in quotes, to emphasize that the word is a media creation, and is not entirely indicative of the real behaviors and traits of malicious codes and programs. In biology, an organism can "catch" a real virus by simply being near it and/or exposed to it. In the world of computer security, active acceptance of a "virus" is needed, in order to "get it." This can include running unknown downloads, browsing shifty websites with an insecure browser, etc. Security threats can come from a multitude of sources: websites, downloads, programs, scripts, macros, etc. They are called all sorts of names: "spyware," "malware," "viruses," etc. All of these names and categories try to order and control something which is by its very nature uncontrollable. It is better to call is all "malicious code" and stop trying to categorize it. But, for the purposes of this review, "virus" refers to a type of malicious computer code which is generally intended to do harm to a target computer, and/or to ferret out financial/personal information, and/or capture control of a computer to allow the "virus" writer to use it for illegal purposes later.

First of all, let me state that I generally don't use any form of "Virus" security software. I generally don't trust them, and I do not like their subscription model of business.
