I am the type of consumer that has no problem paying a little more for something if I believe it to be a quality product. I will stay with a product or brand for years just as I would a physician or anyone providing a service to me IF I have grown to trust in their quality and integrity. I put Norton products in that category very easily. Until, that is, I purchased and installed the new Internet Security 2007.
The first irritation was the warning that I would have to uninstall Spybot Search and Destroy, a little jewel that I had found great comfort in its ability to help me to deal with spyware/adware over the last 2 years or so. NIS 2007, unlike its 2005/2006 versions is now suddenly not compatible with Spybot S & D. I begrudgingly uninstalled it and completed my installation of NIS 2007. The result is despite my use of Ad-Aware SE Personal and my inability to use Spybot, NIS 2007 is thus far unable to stop some spyware/adware and pop-ups which I have not had to face over the previous year with to any degree. Granted it has only been 24 hours since the installation, but it has been 24 hours of being very disappointed with this product. And as stated above, NIS 2007 is less the product that it was in 2006 as it has omitted Parental Control and Anti-Spam from the basic version.Read more ›
nearly halves the performance of my computer. System startup is beyond
painful - XP boots just as quickly as ever, but then Norton gets control
and I can't even get the mouse to respond for another two plus minutes.
All system activities are slower - 20 percent or more. I contacted Norton but got the usual runaround - "delete temporary files, defragment your disk". I deleted the software and my system was back to normal. Tried the 'turn off automatic update' tip offered elsewhere in these reviews, but that didn't help at all in my case (although it may help in others?).
I bought the 3 license pack, and the other two users encountered similar
problems. We have all since removed the software. As a 20 year veteran
in the software industry, I can only say that this software was insufficiently tested before release and that you should look elsewhere
(McAfee?) for your internet security needs.
1. The wizard did not work.
2. After manually installing, the updates hung and locked up everything
3. "Support" (what a joke) told me to deinstall all Norton products (all 2006/current versions) including System Restore to do the installation. (I have never heard of a product that was not compatible with others from the same vendor)
4. "Support" was impossible to reach, hard to understand and poorly trained. When they could/would not fix the problem they said they could send me to someone who could but that would cost extra.
I would sue Norton if it would do any good. I will probably never buy another Norton product for the rest of my life.
PS - Norton Customer Service has contacted me four times to check on the quality of service. No one has ever apologized, offered a refund or even a viable explanation so I suspect they just don't care.
Here's why: my Intel XP (SP2, all fully and newly patched) Dell Dimension came pre-loaded with Symantec anti-virus and internet security products. Having been nagged for a month to renew the subscription (gripe #1: Symantec pockets the $ an early renewal), and then downloading the offered bundle of NIS2007 and SW2006, and coughing up for the extra $10 for the right to download for more than 60 days (that's gripe #2 - surely that's a con), I did this:
1. Backed up, ran a virus scan, then uninstalled NIS2004.
2. Stareted the NIS2007 installation.
3. It complained about Windows Defender Beta (gripe #3: NIs should play nicely with AS programs, especially ones from nice Mr Microsoft).
4. Uninstalled Defender.
5. Installed NIS2007.
6. Registered and downloaded updates, then ran a full system scan as NIS2007 wanted.
Time taken - two hours!!! Everything seemed OK... new little icons and bars over IE.
7. Starting installing SW2006 (why, oh why...). Install halted with an exception: 'CCSettings WindowsException - the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. NGB MBR partions types Unit 0: 0xde 0x07 0x00 0x00. I guess if you're from the planet Hexadecimal that might make sense to you. Further bad news: NIS2007 no longer appeared on the start bar, and IE, Outlook, couldn't see the internet!Read more ›
