I have used Norton (AntiVirus, Firewall, Systemworks Professional) for years without a problem; and I have not had to deal with viruses, breakins or stability problems. They all previously installed in minutes without a problem. I did Not upgrade my 2003 products last year but did renew my subscriptions. I'm using a P4 computer running WinXP, with 612 of RAM and 80 Gig HD. I do not consider myself beyond a computer newbie, so perhaps my experience is a function of inexperience. That said, I have reformatted hard drives, upgraded WinME to XP, flashed the BIOS, installed graphics cards, audio cards,upgraded to USB 2, regularly download and install new software, hardware, etc. all without incident (or only a brief glich).

I have NEVER experienced the BUGGY, UNSTABLE, system wide problems that I have been trying to deal with since attempting to install this product.

(1)..The first problem was that it successfully prevented my Norton 2003 Firewall from starting (i.e., it just freezes on refreshing and after about 10 minutes indicates that all firewall features are disabled (will not permit them to be enabled); knocks out registration, while acknowledging the registration is still current for a few more months).

(2)..It causes Norton SystemWorks 2003 to crash...indicating problems with Symantec Integrator, etc. so SystemWorks is also unusable.

(3).. Antivirus 2005 has yet to be sucessfully installed. As per the Symantec site, I've updated "Liveupdate", and tried to remove and reinstall the product.(I've tried both upgrade/download and full product CD, trying the typical install> restart>delete> restart...) Although it was activated at install, it crashed at the computer's restart.

I just purchased Norton AV 2005 for my Dell Dimension 8250 computer (approx. 1 year old) because my previous Norton Antivirus subsciption had expired and it was cheaper to buy this version than renew the license. What a mistake. I installed the program which seemed to go smoothly until I ran liveupdate to get the new virus definitions. The definitions appeared to download fine, but then they "failed authentication" and the program would not install them. I clicked on the link next to the error message and the Symantec website recognized the problem, but said it was either a problem with my computer or a worm or trojan causing the problem. I don't have any computer problems that I know of and the program didn't tell me what the problem was and I had been running NAV before with no problems and had purchased this after my virus deinfions were only ten days old. It seems a little too convenient that this is a problem with my computer! The Symantec link also gave me a great link to a self diagnostic tool that told me I needed to update my virus definitions -- as if I didn't know that already. I read a host of negative reviews of Norton AV 2004 but still went ahead and purchased NAV 2005 because I had used NAV in the past without any major problems. It looks like the software just keeps getting worse with every version. Don't make the same mistake I did.

I am a retired systems programmer/analyst with 12 years of personal computer experience, both professional and personal.

This product is a disaster. After a year of the successful use of version 2004 under Windows 98SE, the attempt to upgrade to version 2005 not only uninstalled version 2004, but refused to install version 2005. A great many files and corrupted registry keys were left behind making the re-installation of all Symantec products fail. I spent 9 hours on and off the telephone with a vast number of Symantec "Customer Care" people before I was finally able to speak to someone with some technical knowledge. He directed me to the Symantec site and a large number of incredibly complex documents/routines for the deletion of all Symantec products from my computer and for the correction of the corrupted registry.

The next day I waded through several of these removal scenarios and finally accomplished an install. As of this moment I may still have LiveUpdate problems. I will have to wait until the scheduled call to update the virus definitions to see if that "feature" works properly. It did not work properly out of the box, but required the deletion of all LiveUpdate settings and virus definition files before the program would install the downloaded virus definition update. Solving this problem consumed another half-day.

This software is garbage and the Symantec help staff in India is incompetent. Symantec has created a "Support" system which demands hours on hold after which the customer is connected to a non-technical person who can neither answer questions nor direct the frustrated user's call to a competent technician. I will do everything in my power to report in the public media and to all who will listen, the installation failure of this disgraceful product. Symantec should be ashamed.

I have used antivirus products since the DOS and Windows 3.1 days when antivirus protection was still an "option". Today you not only need AV protection for your PC but you also should have good antispyware and a software firewall. In the old days McAfee AV used to be free and Norton AV used to be a premium AV program that worked well at a reasonable price. These things are no longer true today and the software security industry has become a multi-billion dollar Godzilla type of monster that mostly cares about their own profits before customer interests. Unfortunately Symantec's Norton Antivirus 2004 and 2005 are evidence of one of these Godzilla monsters out of control and on the loose.

What happened to this once great antivirus program ? The answer is a combination of "bloatware syndrome" and "product activation". Norton AV 2003 and previous versions did require a faster computer with allot of system resources but they were recognized as some of the best antivirus security programs in the world. This reputation as being number one and the popularity of the internet made Norton Antivirus a prime target for the software thieves to copy, distribute, and profit from one of Symantec's best product. Unfortunately Symantec's solution, namely product activation combined with poor programming, has created a cure for Symantec that is worse than the illness. I have personally never seen, read about, or heard of a software program released on a large scale by a major software company that has corrupted and damaged more working computers than Norton Antivirus 2004 and 2005 products have.
