Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
After running Norton 360 v4 for nearly a year across two Windows 7 PCs, I have been very satisfied with its performance and stability. I was looking forward to upgrading to v5, and extending my subscription.

Functionally, Norton 360 v5 is very similar to v4 with a few additions:
- improved SONAR protection (blocked 100% of virus/malware threats in Dennis Technology test)
- updated Download Insight for even greater protection / scan of downloaded files
- refined user interface

From an effectiveness and performance perspective, I don't think you can get better than Norton 360 v5. It scans transparently in the background, with notification updates that show from the taskbar, without interrupting your work. Unlike other anti-virus software I'd used in the past, I didn't notice significant impact on my work when it's installed and running. When you download a file, the new Insight product will not only scan, but will let you know how many others have safely used the same file. It gives you a good level of confidence.

Just like the prior version, Norton 360 v4 installs easily, keeps out of the way for most operations, and hasn't caused any incompatibility problems for me on two different computers, including a MacBook Pro running Apple's BootCamp and Windows 7. For the price, you get a good value with an extensive set of capabilities including AntiVirus, AntiSpyware, basic Identity Protection, Internet Explorer Password Vault, PC Tuneup and Registry Cleaner, and Backup. The 3-computer edition is a particularly good value if you compare it against at the single-computer price.

The bad news is, if you're a power user you're going to be frustrated with the lack of options available, and even some features you're used to in earlier Norton utilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Speedy, and Stalwart Security March 22, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc
Norton 360 5.0 improves on version 4.0 by making it even faster, better looking, and taking up even less resources while retaining the same effectiveness. Installation is exceptionally fast and within a minute or two, Norton 360 is up and running. The interface could use some work, but overall, it is pretty nice. Important tasks are immediately in your face by hovering over four LARGE blocks. Scans are much faster than Microsoft Security Essentials, Panda, and McAfee. The add-ons are decent. Parental Controls are mediocre. It has a few nice tools that make online shopping easier and safer.

Norton 360 contains many performance improvement tools such as Registry Cleanup, File Cleanup, and Disk Optimizer. Some are available by default in Windows though I have found Norton's to be more comprehensive and faster. Norton 360 is also very light on resources. It feels like it isn't even there! The only thing reminding you Norton is installed is the icon in the System Tray, which restores confidence in your computer's security.

Very Fast Installation and Setup
Easy to use and organized Interface
Fast Scans (and still light on CPU and RAM usage)
Some nice little tools here and there
Very light on resources
No major popups. Only one I've encountered are "High Resource Usage" for Flight Simulator X, Photoshop, and Chrome with multiple tabs.

The "not key" components feel rushed and buggy
Backup Notifications may nag you (can easily be turned off)

Overall a great value. If your computer's security is important to you, get this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Norton 360 ends computer problems forever. April 4, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
Does Norton 360 live up to the hype? For me it does. I bought my first version of Norton 360 3 years ago. I had been using Zone Alarm, Zone Alarm is freeware and donations are accepted but not mandatory. Zone Alarm did not cut it for me. I kept getting emails from them about all these wonderful premium versions that I could buy. They pestered and pestered. With Zone Alarm it seems that it totally took over my computer. Also, my computer was getting slower and slower and no matter what solution I would try, eventually, my computer would slow down again very soon.

About three years ago, a friend mentioned Norton 360 to me and I had recalled that a lot of techies did not care for Norton products and they had gotten a pretty bad rap from the tech community. I decided to give 360 a try. I visited one of my local electronics big box stores and picked up a CD ROM version of Norton 360. At the time I had a desktop from HP and a laptop from Toshiba. The CD ROM allows you to protect up to 3 computers. The desktop was a Intel quad with 4g of RAM. The Laptop was Intel Pentium 4 with 512MB of RAM. I've read some opinions that Norton 360 is resource hungry. This was never an issue for me. Norton 360 has always performed well and mostly in the background.

The first thing I noticed with 360 was that my HP Desktop which I had been using almost exclusively, was not getting bogged down anymore. Norton 360 has all kinds of cool features that help you regain control of your computer. The program once installed is very intuitive and I was an expert at using the wide array of features in no time. I keep an access button on my task bar. when I want to run a scan I just open it up and choose either a quick scan or better yet a full scan.
