5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: great price on Newegg sale. Good if you have more than one computer, but want virus coverage for all of them.

Cons: none really.

Other Thoughts: I have it installed on my main PC, my HTPC, and my laptop. And did so economically. It catches bad stuff, and doesn't get in the way. Even on a lower powered netbook/laptop it uses very little resources.

5 out of 5 eggsAS IT SHOULD

Pros: Low impact on resources, affordable, it just works as it should.

Cons: wont do the dishes

Other Thoughts: I have this installed on an older laptop with 1gig of ram, a netbook also with 1gig of ram and the performance does not suffer even during scans I can hardly tell its there unlike older versions of Norton, been running this version since it was in beta

5 out of 5 eggsEGGxellent

Pros: Very User friendly, and low resource usage.
Does scans when PC is idle.
Can detect when in FULL SCREEN and postpone tasks and warnings for later.
Installs in less than a minute or two pretty much on any computer, old ones might take longer.
One if not the highest rated detection engine according to industry research and testing.

Cons: mmmm
Does not prevent, detect and/or clean *some* versions of the Fake.AntiVirus Trojans out there (you know, WinAntivirus, Antivirus200*,etc); BUT, I've seen this happen with Kaspersky, McAfee, TrendMicro, AVG and others too (It usually all comes down to the weakest link, the end user)

Other Thoughts: Ignore negative reviews and take the word from someone who's been using Norton since the DOS era; I've seen it be good, get bad, and since v2009 get all good again. The popular concern, a while back, about Norton slowing down your PC is no longer valid, since it was re-done in 2008-9.

Much to the disappointment of Stevie below, the product includes 1 (as in ONE) License which you can install in up to 3 PC's; once this 1 license is activated in ANY PC, time starts running out, either if you install it on additional computers or not or if you understand the concept of 1 License or not.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: Great product. Fast installation. Low resource usage. Has a "silent" mode that switches off background scans and updates for when you want the full potential of your computer (ie gaming). Catches most viruses out there.

Cons: Like any anti-virus, there is not a singe one that will catch EVERYTHING. A combination of A SINGLE ANTI VIRUS PROGRAM and some sort of anti spyware program will usually catch most things.

Other Thoughts: Do not believe what user Rhetoric states. He/she has less than any knowledge about computers if he/she believes that Avast anti virus uses less resources than Norton Anti-Virus. I have personal experience with both. I have no experience with Avira, so I can not form a statement regarding that program. It's people like this that will tell you installing two separate anti-viruses on one computer is a good thing to do. -Insert rolling eyes smiley here-

4 out of 5 eggsgood

Pros: don't even know its there, does its scanning when system is idle

Cons: Was not compatable with Zone Alarm firewall last year, so I switched to Comodo with no problems

Other Thoughts: I started using Norton AntiVirus with 2009 because of good reviews and I am not sorry.

1 out of 5 eggsProduct is good shipping carrier is bad

Pros: Have used Norton products for years and have always trusted them. At times they can be system resource hogs but this is a very good product.

Cons: Newegg messed up on this one. The default shipping service is very poor. The product started 2 hrs from my house. After 3 days it was 2 days away. With the normal carrier I would have gotten it the next day - with this carrier it took a week. Beware - newegg does not always make the best choices for their customers!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Don't Listen to Rhetoric,

This is the number one rated antivirus on the market, easily. Very easily installed, very fast, and almost no hit on system resources.
If you want the best there is, this is it. I recommend the full Internet Security Suite for better protection though.

Cons: None. Best antivirus handsdown. And I am knowlegeable in this area.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money.. nor your time.

Pros: It has a pretty box...

Cons: Resource hog, extremely intrusive software, highly ineffective at catching virus infections.. the list goes on and on.

Other Thoughts: If you want an AV program that actually works and that is FREE, check out one of the following:

1.) Avira Antivir FREE edition
2.) Avast Free edition

I am in tech support for a large publishing company in the Midwest US, and I cannot tell you the number of sales reps who have been using this very product and have gotten numerous devastating virus infections all the while Norton insisted everything was fine on the system.

Solution: FULL UNINSTALL OF NORTON'S... and an install of Avira Free / Avast Free.

Result: No more virus infections!! (whoa! it's like MAGIC, folks!!) Oh yeah, did I forget to mention Avira and Avast are COMPLETELY FREE and are much more effective at catching and fixing virus infections?!

You couldn't PAY me to install Norton's ANYTHING on a computer.

Sorry Newegg, I love ya. I REALLY DO. I just can't condone the use of terrible software.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Uses a very little system resources.

Cons: Any AV software uses system resources, but at least this one uses less and is unobtrusive, so I guess this is kind of a pro.
