Confirmed purchaser Not a computer geek

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Just about everything, if you have broadband. Much better than previous incarnations - less cpu hungry for most of its applications. The new Pulse updates are great as the PC checks every 5 minutes for new virus definitions and downloads as necessary, but quietly in the background. You don't even realise it's doing anything.
Bad points:
If you have dial-up installation can be painful. For one, initial installation takes much longer, which is to be expected. However, I installed this on my parents PC in June, so obviously it had been on the market quite a while. Running 'Live Update' after installation to bring it up to current spec showed that 50+ Mb of files were required. This task proved impossible as after 3 attempts, (at 2 hours each), I realised that it wasn't going to work - presumably the Symantec servers don't like being tied to one PC for over 2 hours - and the updates fail. In the end I had an on-line chat with Customer Services who gave me a link whereby I could down load the files onto my own PC using Broadband, save the files to disc or flash drive then take them round to my parents and install them.

Manufacturer's Description

Norton Internet Security 2009 is fast, comprehensive, and up-to-the-minute protection against online threats. It safeguards your computer, your identity, and your home network without slowing you down. Completely reengineered, it sets a new standard for speed and makes online shopping, banking, and browsing safer and more convenient than ever

New threats don’t stand a chance against the Norton Protection System, a multilayered system of technologies that work in concert to stop threats before they impact you. Relying on an intelligence-driven technology, it targets only those files at risk, for faster, fewer, shorter scans. While Web-based attacks may be the single fastest growing type of online threat, patent-pending browser protection lets you surf the Internet with a strong defence against browser exploits that can be picked up on infected Web sites. And rapid pulse updates every 5 to 15 minutes deliver up-to-the-minute protection against new threats

Quick to install and even quicker to boot, its smart two-way firewall automatically blocks threats from entering or leaving your system. An updated Norton Identity Safe features a strong ant phishing solution driven by both blacklists and heuristics technologies that safeguard your online identity, passwords, and credit card information from online theft. And improved network security monitoring checks that your wireless network is properly encrypted to maximize protection

Need help? Our extensive online knowledge base has quick answers to common problems. Norton Auto Fix technology will diagnose and fix common problems. Live chat includes remote access technology so our support technicians can solve the problem for you.
