1 out of 5 eggsDont get it

Pros: It works!

Cons: Annoying as hell to deal with.

Stops downloads sometimes.

Can be a hassle to change its settings.

Other Thoughts: Got it for free with a purchase I made. Recently wiped clean my OS drive and decided to not download the software again since it was so annoying.

2 out of 5 eggsNo

Pros: It was free, but you know they'll eventually try to hit you up for money.

Cons: No consumer should pay for anti-virus software. This software just slows down your machine and bothers you. I work at a tech company with hundreds of IT guys and I couldn't get a single person to take it off my hands.

Other Thoughts: Don't install this. Put it in the trash or use it as a doorstop. Get Microsoft Security Essentials. It doesn't slow down your PC, it doesn't ask you to pay for it or activate it and I haven't gotten a virus in years.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste you money

Pros: Too expensive, too bloated

Cons: Once again Norton relies on it's name, it looks nice, but is basically useless for preventing Malware, HiJack Trojans are a much bigger threat and Norton is useless against these, by the time it warns you you are infected it's too late worse than that it cannot remove them or fix the damage they do to your system settings and registry. A waste of money, Microsoft's FREE security essentials works better.

Other Thoughts: Malware-Bytes even the free version scans and removes Malware, a MUCH bigger threat than Viruses, for $25 for the full version it's far better than Norton, Norton is now so desperate that they warn you that Malwarebytes might interfere with NAV, so what given a choice I removed Norton and have not had any kind of infection since, don't waste your money on Norton, they have gotten fat and lazy.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of money

Pros: It works fast and takes up little resources.

Cons: It let malware into my system within the first month. I was using Avast for a long time and decided to get this because of the reviews online. Big mistake. I downloaded a freeware video converter program from download.com, (which I normally don't do because of the threat of malware but hey I had Norton installed). Norton said the file was good. Next thing I know it's installing something extra even when I unchecked all the bloatware check boxes that most programs come with now. After trying to close or cancel the install it still installed malware. Every one of my browsers were hijacked and had a toolbar that I didn't authorize to be installed and other stuff in my add remove programs as well. Of course Norton couldn't remove the hijacked browser files. I finally decided to wipe my system and do a fresh install. Never again will I buy Norton, I stayed away for years and will now stay away permanently!!!

Other Thoughts: Sometimes free is just better!

3 out of 5 eggsBest AV for $10

Pros: Only paid $9.99 for it.

Does it's job.

Has some fetures.

Includes an optional extension for chrome to check web sites and scan link/downloads.

Doesn't slow down my PC like previous versions of Norton did.

Cons: Not as good as elegant as Kaspersky, and doesn't protect at the same level either...

Other Thoughts: Well, for it's current price ($9.99) Not much else can beat it, probably the best bang for your buck. I would not pay full price for it however.

5 out of 5 eggsKnow how to use it, before complaining

Pros: Too busy to write long, so today say just this much:

To me was one of the several AV utilities years ago, then one day a disastrous event happened @work hundreds of miles away from home, due to their (work) network spreaiding EXTREMELY sophisticated virus. I did it all - I was losing my machine in front o fmyh eyes slowly descending into infectious chaos, I finally recovered 99.9% of it by meticulous exiting Windows & using NortonAV in command-prompt ("DOS"-like_ mode, only Norton saved my CAD worklaptop, some "heavy duty" tool included w/Norton which only is effective OUTSIDE Windows, saved me from hell, I am serious.
Been using NAV since 2007 when got it by an accident (someone suggested + my research), LONG TIME & I keep upgrading to next year everyyear, despite a large number of "Norton "opposers")

Cons: NOT a "con" per se, instead a MESSAGE to all you who complain "Norton used to be good, now it's not blah...."
It's a complex powerful software (& not cheap or free, unlke some competing "toys') - many & difficult to understand settings.
Requires certain skills to set settings properly, there're NUMEROUS settings which when mis-configured will cause all that you people complain - loading down computer's resources, impossible to uninstall/disable, etc. PLEASE learn, be skillful & understand howto use stuff, before complaining.
I've been on it since 2007, also skeptical in the beginningbut a few events convinced me only NAV was able to cleanup my client's machines.

Other Thoughts: There's one powerful suggestion I tell everyone:

DO PAIR it with PCtool's "Spyware Doctor" The two softwares complement each other, NAV's core business is antivirus DESPITE its claims to add "AntiSpyware", likewise PCtools' "SpywareDoctor" core biz. is AntiSpyware, not Antivirus as they claim to add, so you should get BOTH these programs & run first NAV, then SpywareDoc, that's a good method tobe sure you're clean. NAV won't catch certain spyware, and SpywareDoc won't approach NAV in virus dept., so use BOTH one after another (if you value your data!).

I cannot post some "lengthy manual" for the following in Reviews section of "Newegg", but remember there's a certain powerful utility within NortonAV that (@least I used) outside Windows will chew & destroy any very/powerful/invasive virii, which won't be ffective inside WIndows b/c Antivirus software but its nature is very special & runs in "abnormal" memory areas, how tod that I can't spent time explaining, but it is what saved me a few years back on some dreary night when I witnessed my filesystem being devoured by a virus from work network. I never NEVER was or will get infected at home, b/c I know computers welll... it's just some mobile worksites that give you a router, a network & you can get nasty invaders..;. NortonAV saved me.

1 out of 5 eggsNorton is not worth buying

Pros: Norton used to be good... about two decades ago

Cons: As a IT Pro, I get many computers for malware cleanup everyday. At least half have Norton software as its sole protection and costumers think that they are being protected when paid for Norton - wrong. Sadly even free MSE does better job on Malware front.

Other Thoughts: Symantec has a great research staff and I wish their developers are on that level. If your development is driven by sales hungry marketing dept, your customers experience will suffer.
