“Lousy customer service! Don't bother trying to email...”

Written on: 06/10/2009

Lousy customer service! Don't bother trying to email questions because they will never get answered. Whilst working the software is fine but when it goes wrong you're on your own. Very resource hungry so don't expect much in the way of performance from other applications as Norton grabs most of your system resource.

“lets face it, norton antivirus is nearly as bad as...”

Written on: 10/09/2009

lets face it, norton antivirus is nearly as bad as some of the malicious software its supposed to be protecting you from. It is constantly popping up telling you about threats that it is stopping, telling you to do this and that. I feel sorry for all the people who got this junk pre installed on their PCs, and shame on the manufactures for being associated with it. I got ESET nod 32 now and it just quietly humms away in the background, no more annoying norton popping up all over my screen… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/11/2008 by shayward (1 review written)

My advice: DO NOT touch this software. There is far better free software available I think. Used excessive system resources. Didn't stop or detect all viruses. eg. Computer was running VERY slow slow so removed Norton. Instantly loads faster, ran a FREE anti-virus and found several major worms, trojans… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/06/2007 by Jeff Rollason (1 review written)

This came on my HP Sempron, but I have generally ignored it until one year later when I moved it to be my internet PC. This is the version with full virus checking. I had a strong incentive to stick with it as I did not want to have to uninstall it and find another product. When I started having troubles I wondered if it was somehow me, and popped into this site. Having seen it scored 1.1 out of 10.0 I was inclined to believe that these were real difficulties. For a start the console does not… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/01/2007 by Petebu1 (8 reviews written)

There has been a lot of criticism of this particular product and I too have had a number of annoying problems however, Norton customer support really helped out here!

"Sluggishness" yes but on completely removing all NIS 2006 and reinstalling, the computer was very responsive. I had upgrade from NIS 2005 - Never perform an upgrade it causes problems further down the road! To date all is running very well.

I should point out that you should read the manuals thoroughly...unlike me. This would… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/12/2006 by oliver202 (2 reviews written)

I bought and installed this product the moment it came out, being a fan of Norton IS 2005, I put in the disc clicked install upgrade and the install started, I've got to admit it was quicker than I expected and soon my computer had restarted and I was awaiting to try out this long awaited "masterpiece". Though I quickly found, it was not what I hoped for.

Yes, the control panel may be easy to use, but what good is that if it takes 5 minutes to load. Its not as though my computer is rubbish… Read Full Review

“I thought that when I purchased a new computer that I...”

Written on: 05/12/2006 by tuffers (3 reviews written)

I thought that when I purchased a new computer that I would also try a new Internet security product. I now wish that I hadn't bothered. Although the installation procedure is easy enough it takes a very long time to install and run for the first time. However installing this program is not the main problem. Once it is installed it then takes a lot of resources and tends to dominate your PC instead of working in the background. With constant pop up messages it becomes really annoying. The… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/09/2006 by Ieuanfawr (68 reviews written)

There are more efficient products available - check them first, and put this at the bottom of your list.

I bought an upgrade to AV2006 from AV2005 as it was cheaper than subscribing for another year's updates. Big mistake!

Norton AV2006 was slow to install, and the activation process didn't recognise my existing registration/account with Symantec, so I had to create another. The initial update was a 20Mb download which took longer to install than download. It took two reboots before… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/05/2006 by ro2nie (2 reviews written)

DO NOT buy any of the 2006 Norton products. You can get lots of better security applications out there that are cheaper, and better.Now I use Avast. Avast found viruses within Norton AntiVirus and Norton Internet Security as well as a few more viruses and spyware, that NIS and NAV never found before… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/04/2006 by stevelyt (1 review written)

The sealed packaging does not make it clear Symantec Norton Internet Security 2006 is for use on one computer, and not computers in the same building. It took 2 days to get the activation reset after a virus it let through kept cancelling the activation

I had used Norton since 2002 never again

I would not recommend it to anyone… Read Full Review

“I bought Symantec Norton Internet Security 2006 before...”

Written on: 03/12/2005 by Canuckster1127 (1 review written)

I bought Symantec Norton Internet Security 2006 before checking the reviews. I figured Norton was a primary player, so their product must be good, right?

WRONG!!!

I've wasted several hours trying to get this product to load and to activate. Then when I went to erase it, it wouldn't even unload properly.

A complete waste of time and money… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/11/2005 by R B Jackson (1 review written)

I removed Norton System work 2002, Norton Antivirus 2004 and Norton Firewall 2004.

I replaced these with Norton Systrem Works 2005 and Norton Internet Security 2006.

The effect was dramatic. It stopped all business in my company for more than 5 days followed by a further 10 days recovery.


This program is extremely bad news… Read Full Review

218300_Chriswalke's Response to R B Jackson's Review

Written on: 24/11/2005

I have installed Norton Internet Security 2006 and thus far have suffered very little slowdown and excellent protection. I understood that this software was a little hungry for resources and expected a significant decrease in performance but I cant see any. Good program, competitive price, I guess its a case of horses for courses.....
