Symantec's Norton AntiVirus 2003 scans and cleans both incoming and outgoing e-mail, stopping viruses from infecting your computer or spreading to other computers. It removes viruses automatically, without interrupting your work. To prevent infections during real-time online chats, Norton AntiVirus now also detects viruses in instant-message attachments, including ones you receive using MSN, Windows, AOL, and Yahoo! messaging services.
Updates are downloaded automatically over the Internet to protect your computer with the latest virus definitions from the Symantec Security Response team. These virus experts work 24 hours a day, developing new definitions whenever a new threat is discovered. Even between virus definition updates, Symantec's exclusive Worm Blocking and Script Blocking technologies can identify and stop suspicious programs.
Because Norton AntiVirus is so simple to set up and use, you can be up and running with powerful virus protection right away. You also get step-by-step instructions for installing the program on a computer that's already infected. For small businesses, 5- and 10-user packs are also available.

Now I have my my fully loaded brand new monster Dell. Yeehaw baby. :) I bought the (NortonInternetSecurity) NIS 2003. Same old trusty anti-virus coupled with the FireWall from hell. I think you have to understand binary language for this one. I don't.
I ended up being petrified that any moment I would press yes in response to the wrong request for access and be invaded by hoards of hackers. (well...maybe not that petrified)
On the other hand I kept saying no...and of course I got no internet access. I went back to using my Compaq cause I couldn't and/or was afraid to use my spanking brand new sporty speedster.
I nixed the NIS2003 and tried installing the McAfee trial Security System that came with the computer. The fire-wall is a little friendlier to the average you and me. Still I wasn't impressed enough to switch completely over. They are coupling their virus software with the firewall. No option for one or the other.
I went back to the Norton. Spent 2 more days paralyzed. Finally decided to stop crying in frustration. Called Dell. They are doing a full return on the NIS 2003 --no problem-- living up nicely to customer service reputation.
I came here and got the simplicity of Norton AntiVirus 2003. That's it--plain Anti-virus protection. Easy--simple--unobtrusive. Does its job and leaves you alone.
I called up ZoneAlarm Pro. This is a product to love! Optional automatic lock-down that activates after defined inactivity or when your screen-saver activates. You can even choose to allow programs of your choice lock access. Directions and alerts in plain intelligble english.
You feel in control.
I suggested to Dell that they start offering ZoneAlarm as a FireWall option and keeping the Norton simply Anti-virus.
Unless your a computer programmer and understand binary complex computer language and are willing to memorize protocols etc etc...stay away from the Norton anti-virus/firewall combo.
Your peace of mind will appreciate the ZoneAlarm.
The programs seemed to run okay, even though infected, but when NAV "repaired" the files, it destroyed them and I had to reinstall everything! I was able to get away with reinstalling the applications on the machine running 2000, but on the machine running XP Pro I had to reinstall the entire operating system, as well as everything else; a monumental pain. At least Jeefo virus doesn't go after documents. When I contacted support at Symantec, I got no response at all. What good is an antivirus program if the company doesn't keep their virus definitions up-to-date?
Now, anytime I download something it goes into a quarantine folder for a month and gets scanned every few days until I am satisfied I will get no more surprises.
Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid!
I tried it on another machine and it does seem to work using an older email system. But one shouldn't have to put up with a product that is not "ready to go" right off the shelf. Maybe some people like spending all of their time fussing with this sort of thing, but I buy software to improve my life, not complicate it.
