5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for new computers only!, June 8, 2008
This review is from: Norton 360 Version 2.0 [Old Version] (CD-ROM)
First, let me just say to those that already don't know: Before even thinking about buying this, visit Norton's website and download a 15-day trial, to see if it works well with your system.

It seems to me that Norton 360 is a program with a huge ego: If installed on a new clean, freshly-reformatted PC, it will serve you well. As advertised, these are the features you get with the pacakge:

Antivirus
Antispyware
Email scanning
Antiphishing
Rootkit detection
Identity protection
Web site authentication
Network monitoring
Firewall protection
Automatic backup and restore
2GB secured online storage
PC performance tuneups
Automatic updates*
Embedded support
Optional antispam and parental controls

One aspect that I noticed is its no longer a system hog like it used to be. It even scans, defragments and mantains your system while your computer is idle.

However, if your machine is no longer in the "new, fresh" state, get ready to face some problems. It seems like it complicates things with other utility programs that may have already be installed on your machine(thats why I said "Big Ego.")

I had problems with Norton 360 when I installed it on a PC that was reformatted half a year ago and it didn't run too well: freezing, hang-ups and Live Update complete stopped working. It was also difficult to uninstall.

However, on a newly bought PC it worked pretty smoothly so far with no complications.

But don't take my word for it. PC Magazine has an extensive review on it. EDIT: Amazon took the link off...I guess we're not allowed to post 3rd party links. However, if you google "Norton 360 review" it will be one of the top links.

Nice review. And yes, Ammie won't allow links. If they did we'd be up to our eyeballs in 'bot droppings for various adult sites ;]

"Ammie" hehe I like that one! I never thought about that, but it sure makes sense to me now; thank you!
