I tried earlier versions of Norton 360 and I must admit that their software has gotten really bad lately. When they came out with Norton Utilities that was a great programs because it was simple but easy to use. Norton 360 is junkware because It uses a lot of memory and I find that there are better programs out there that can do the job far better then norton 360 can.I give norton 360 3 stars only because It has a few good features like easy to install but that's all nothing else.

I think Norton 360 is very good. I think I prefer NIS because N360 cleans your system without letting you turn that part off.

How I get around the toolbar. When IE asks me to enable them, I say no to the toolbar and yes to the vulnerability one. So I think that gives me protection without the toolbar.

If Anonymous was able to get the source code, how secure was it in the first place?

Norton products - Ask Search in Norton toolbar. No option to remove and it was pushed by including in a Norton patch.

As I see it the future of AV is the likes of latest Webroot Smart Security, with an install size of 600k & a memory footprint of around 5 meg it is brilliant.

Expect more of this from other AV suppliers over the coming months.

Before you knock it - Try it - I too was cynical.

All signature based AV - Anti Malware are on the way out.

This is far beyond junk. It completely takes over your machine and makes you, the users, a slave to the machine.

I have not installed the beta version, but I have had Norton 360 version 5 on my computer.
I am running Windows 7 64 bit, and while I find this Norton to be much improved, it did cause a problem on my computer. I was unable to turn off the part that allows me to keep some setting for web sites (bank and credit card).
I am going to tr working with Norton to see if it is correctable.
This is only on my machine from what I understand.
I am rating it as a 3 nly because of that.
I am one that used to not like Norton at all, but this version is much, much improved.
My suggestion. Give it an honest try, if it gives you any problems, get in touch with the Norton support. They really seem to want to work things out now.

@cyberdoc999:
Considering the fact that you refer to Norton as "Nortons" like every other ignorant 80 year old out there, I have a hard time finding anything useful in your review.

@Input Overload:
Really? "PC 7"? That's a new one for me...

Unlike CyberDoc, I legitimately DO fix PCs for a living and recommend Norton 360 or Kaspersky IS to every one of my customers. N360 for the neanderthals, and KIS for those who do not dislike Windows 7 because it looks different than "the XP", as the neanderthals put it.

N360 has a light footprint and installs quickly and easily. My colleagues and I install N360 on about 20 PCs a week, and not once has their been a problem. I use it myself on my netbook because KIS has a larger footprint therefore is more likely to slow it down further. On my main non-UNIX machines, I use Kaspersky IS.

Norton 360 is an excellent product for those who are not "computer savvy".

If you overcame you prejudges regarding the bloated crapware that Norton used to turn out actually & move to 2011 from 1987 & evaluated Norton AV products TODAY you would be amazed.

I too wouldn't have had a Norton product near any of my machines but I moved on & found 360 & Internet Security are the by far the best AV’s around, bar none.

Oh & my three PC's all have different operating systems on XP, Vista, on on this new PC 7, so I know it fine on all MS platforms.

This is from a diehard ex Eset user of many, many years.

To be frank 'ZenWarrior’ I don't believe a word of your post, from two machines – unmitigated total absolute rubbish & lies (or is that ‘trash’ to you?).

CyberDoc999 I assume you haven't installed the product as you won't have Norton near your PC's therefore how did you review 360? Therefore I conclude your review is invalid as its based on an old opinion not actual testing.

I installed Norton AV on all 3 of my machines a few weeks ago with not one problem, it is fit & forget brilliant software. it doesn't even slow my old trusty ancient DELL 620 lappy down.

ballyhairs = Moronic idiot.

Move on luddites!
