After years of running Norton Antivirus products, with ever increasing demands on system resources, as well as slowing down the machines these products were installed on, the completely rewritten version of Norton Internet Security 2009 has gone a very long way towards correcting years of bloatware code that was made worse with every new release.

This version installs fast, runs fast, and is almost entirely unobtrusive, with one very major exception.

This software will break your home or small business network.

In a well-documented bug first discovered in October 2008, Norton interferes with, and eventually blocks access to other machines on your home network. Norton admits there is a problem, and has been stalling customers for months with promises for a fix, yet keeps pushing the release date out further and further.

Install Norton 2009, and eventually all of the computers on your home network under My Network Places will disappear, and will eventually be blocked from access. While you can frequently manually reach your other networked machines by typing their addresses directly into an address bar, software that depends on access to your other networked machines directly (index, backup, small business collaboration tools, etc.) usually cannot work this way, and you are effectively cut off from using those applications. Worse, over time, Norton will begin periodically cutting off access to your networked machines. Suddenly file copying between machines fails, extremely long delays in accessing other computers on your network occurs, and your frustration level mounts.

Norton admits the only current solution to this problem is to completely uninstall Norton 2009 Antivirus/Internet Security products. There is no other workaround.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best version of Norton Internet security yet! October 3, 2008
(Product same as one that says 'No operating system', but can be installed on 3 PCs)

I have been using NIS since 2006 for both my desktop and laptop for virus protection. While none of them have given significant problems to me, this is by far the best NIS yet!

Installation: Installation was a real snap. It was amazingly quick. Removal of NIS2008 (automatic) took a few minutes and with one restart the whole installation and live update was finished in under 10 minues (My PCs dont have the latest processors: one is a pentium D 3.0G/1g memory and the other is a centrino 1.8 with 2G memory).

Interface: The interface looks very similar to NIS2008, but more sleek and informative. The phising protection and log=in key cards in your browsers look better than before. much smaller though!

Configuration: NIS2009 retained all my configurations regarding which networks are safe and all other preferences from NIS2008. This was great! I didnt have to reconfigure anything (except the add-on; see below), saving me a lot of time. For new users, there are many options configured by default and easy to change.

Anti-virus and internet protection: After installation, I just browsed a number of websites that I usually do. In one website, I got a download installator warning from NIS and the problem was immediately resolved with out any damage to the computer. Looking at the 'history', I could see a number of Low risk issues resolved by NIS with out any annoying popups. Ofcourse, you can set NIS to popup for every risk (even the low riks ones) if you like.

More than anything, it retains your subscription to NIS2008. So you dont have to use your new key until your current susbcription expires. You will continue to get NIS2009 virus updates as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Symantec Norton Internet Security till date! October 4, 2008
By Ramon
I have been using NIS 2009 for the past days, and it is has been great so far! This is the best version of Norton Internet Security to date. Three things you will notice about this version of Norton:

1) It is super light. Symantec reputation of having bloatware and slow products are long gone. They have try to turn the table with there 2008 product lines, but Symantec hit the nail in there 2009 products. It is amazing to have a Norton product install on my computer, while not even noticing it. Even with its updating the definitions [etc] (which is very frequent, I will get to that in a moment), you will not notice any slowdown.

2) It is fast. Scanning is fast. By using the newest technology of "Norton Insights", which is basically a "whitelist" feature, scanning has been reduced. On my computer, quick scan was quick [less than 3 minutes], while the full scan was longer [about 1 hour 30 minutes]. Please note that the full scan was done before I started "Norton Insights". Either case, the amount of data one's have in there computer determines the amount of time a Antivirus/Antispyware take in scanning. On a side note, Norton Internet Security 2009 was faster in scanning in comparison to other Antivirus I have use (i.e., Kaspersky Internet Security 2009, Avast, etc).

Boot time was faster as well. Norton Internet Security 2009 started in about 30 seconds or so, which is by far faster than Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 which sometimes took more than a minute to start up on my computer.

Installation was also fast. It took over a minute to fully installed on my computer.
