Continued Evolution of Excellent, Full-Circle Virus Protection,
This review is from: Norton 360 2013 - 1 User / 3 PC [Old Version] (Software)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Several years ago, when I first replaced another virus protection program with Norton 360, I was impressed with its improved level of protection. Norton 360 also didn't significantly slow-down my computer as my previous virus-protection program would do. Aside from virus protection, one of my favorite features of Norton 360 is that it helps to keep SPAM out of the inbox of my POP3 mail client.
On numerous occasions it has detected Plishing scams, infected Websites and email attachments and prevented them from infecting my computer. Norton 360 constantly scans and tunes my computer when it is idle to clean up cookies, duplicate files and any other issues that can slow down my computer, then provides me a report of what it has done.
This newest version 6 is more evolutionary than revolutionary; retaining the familiar features from its 2012 version 5 with a slick new user interface, adding Windows 8 compatibility, free Android smart phone protection, yet including all of the features that have earned this program's popularity since it was first introduced.
While I'm sure that there are fans of other virus-protection programs, I believe that Norton 360 provides the best overall protection with the lowest negative impact on my computer's performance. This version provides protection for up to three computers for a full year at a competitive price. After you have installed your software and registered it with Norton, you can download and install it on two more computers even if you've lost your installation disk.
