4.0 out of 5 stars Norton has done it again, almost perfect! September 30, 2009
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC Disc
This is my fifth year of using NIS to protect my home computer and laptop. With the noticeable improvements last version, Norton came back with a bang. While NIS2010 still has some flaws, the good trend seems to continue this year as well.

Installation: Installation was very quick similar to NIS2009. It does require a restart which seems to be the case for most virus protection software. Norton for some reason wants us to download and install parental control separately. just a hazel. If you are an existing NIS user you can upgrade from Norton's upgrade website before deciding to purchase the new version. The upgrade will retain your 2009 subscription and your license will be retained as well. NOTE: If you install from CD, your old license will be over written.

Performance: I don't think NIS2010 is a resource hog. Norton also has performance meters where you can check how much of the system resources are being used by Norton. It seems NIS 2010 uses most system resources only during a complete scan. NIS2010 upgrade virus signatures on the background during idle time just like NIS2009. So you dont feel that it exists. Quick scans during idle times also seem to be pretty quick. I havent noticed any loss of performance in the one week that I have been using NIs2010.

Virus protection: Based on tests by PC world and CNET Norton is only behind the not well known G-DATA internet security in virus detection. I havent used G-DATA so I cant compare them. However, NIS has gotten better at malware detection. It did detect a number of malware that adaware and other security software that I use (e.g. Advanced system care). NIS2009 missed a number of these malware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! May 7, 2010
Access Method:Thin Software Download| Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I was a little frustrated when the upgrade online via my current (well expired) Norton's was going to cost me more than it did last year (almost 60 bucks and it was only $49.99 last year) so I came here to see if I could save a little money and I did! I was a little afraid to download it at first because I saw that it might only work until Dec 2010, but I took the chance anyway because my subscription expired today. Well, after the successful download, I copied down the Product Key, I did the upgrade via the "renew now" tab on my current (expired) Norton's, and it gave me 366 days! Yes! And it was less than 40 bucks so I'm happy about that. I only did this review in case someone else is in the same situation I was in tonight - afraid to download it! :) It's all good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good to see somebody focused on lightweight software October 6, 2009
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC Disc
While most of Symantec's competitors seem to be struggling with software "bloat", it's good to see one of the big guys heading back to more of a streamlined approach.

I installed the software on two PCs so far...one a Vista Ultimate having no existing security software, and the other a Windows XP with McAffee's product. The installer suggested removing the McAffee product (which I did) and the installation was similarly uneventful on both of my systems from there on. It does force a reboot, and between the initial install plus downloading any updates, it took longer than I expected - about half an hour end to end.

As for performance, there is a slight (but noticeable) increase in the reboot time when Norton starts up - perhaps an extra 30 seconds total. And if you're sensitive to performance, you can also tell when the product is updating virus signatures in the background, or performing one of its quick virus scans.

The basic anti-virus protection seemed fine. Not too obtrusive, although it's difficult to really assess the quality of the virus scanning, since I've yet to actually encounter a virus. I tend to be careful, but still, being one of the better known products, Norton gives you a sense of security in case you do something silly and let an infected file in.

I didn't activate the network protection features that come with the product. I tend to rely instead on a router with a strong firewall capability, and then I keep my "internal" network fairly open. The product did detect a number of networked apps I use, stopping to ask my permission before letting them open whatever ports they were using. Would have been nice to set this sort of policy globally, rather than having to bump into applications one at a time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Norton Internet Security 2010 October 6, 2009
By Ken
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I first bought the new Norton Internet Security 2009 this spring and installed it on one computer (notebook)that had been using CA Internet Security and one (server) that was using Trend Micro IS 2007. The performance difference between Norton IS 2009 and the CA product was dramatic, not as much so with Trend Micro. With Norton IS 2009 my computers ran much faster and had far fewer "issues" with security software on both systems. I received an upgrade to Norton IS 2010 as an IS 2009 user at no charge and the installation on two machines went flawlessly. I am very impressed with the smaller footprint of IS 2009/10 and the tools it offers. One complaint is the long (1 week)interval between full scans if you choose to use automatic settings. It does quick scans every day but needs the ability to schedule full scan intervals as part of the automatic settings. A novice choosing manual scans could inadvertently leave their computer at a greater risk if not configured properly.
