I have been using Symantec Norton products since i can remember. A few years ago, the product and updates started to get a bit slack, but they soon got better. In recent years, the product has started to use up a lot of system resources and really slowed things down, but apparently, Symantec have realised this and the new 2007 version is much much better, and i would have to agree.
I admit that for a beginner, the personal firewall could be a bit daunting, but after you understand what a... (read more)

I have been subscribing to Norton Antivirus 2004 and have kept it up to date. Yesteday though, after my PC was running a little slow I did a full scan after a 6 week break (and not having used the PC for 3 weeks!!). NAV2004 came up with nothing. Being suspisious I loaded another Anti virus program (Kasperski) which came up with not one, but TWO TROJANS!!! OUCH!
What have I been paying my money for all these years? What a useless product. Don't touch. I would assume that the others are the... (read more)

Don't go anywhere near the 2003 version of Norton Antivirus as it is not supported.
I spent three frustrating days trying to manually edit the registry to get rid of the 2003 product, as the new 2006 version I had just shelled out $(AUS)85 wouldn't install.
The utility on their website to uninstall the program doesn't work. Their technical support on the website is contradictory - with different pages telling you to do different things. Their online chat technical support seem to have... (read more)

Have been using NAV 2003 for 2 years without any problems/issues. It has stopped loads of email viruses and the auto-protect weekly scans have always deleted incoming threats. A lot of people complain about NAV being resource hungry, I have a fast PC so can't comment on that. I would recommend NAV as a great all-round virus killer. (read more)

The 3-pack license of the Norton Antivirus 2003 - Symantec only works if all your machines have CD drives. My new laptop does not, and the downloadable version cannot be activated with the 3-pack license. It took 3 hours (literally) on the phone with Symantec, and they say to return the whole group or go buy a CD drive. They suck. (read more)

I've been using Norton products for nearly 20 years. The latest batch of products saddens me. They have finally run me off. Even with current updates the Norton Antivirus 2003 - Symantec e-mail scanner was letting viruses through, then catching them latter as the e-mail client accessed the just-downloaded mail to display it. This usually caused something to crash.
I tried the official Symantec work-a-round of disabling the e-mail scanning completely. Yes, their official fix was to let your... (read more)

I have tried several different Anti-Virus packages over the years but since buying the Norton software I have not been tempted to look at another.
The Norton Antivirus 2003 - Symantec interface is clean and professional in appearance giving all the information you are likely to want without cluttering the screen with useless facts.
I am pleased to say that since I have used it the software has intercepted quite a number of viruses and has not missed any to my knowledge. This is backed up by... (read more)

+ Little configuration, easy setup and automatically updates of your virus definitions, as well the application itself.
- Still the memory and processor usage. But in this release you can't bother to much, as the application uses something about 7Mb when minimized, but active. (read more)

This AV software has very little user configuration, creates too many small files in the Norton protected bin which eventually chokes your paging file to death and restricts your ability to delete those pesky norton .dat and .pf files. It uses far too much memory for the type of scans it employs. Too many people rely on it simply because it is a "big name" company. You want a good antivirus that won't lag your system or create administrator conflicts... get F-Secure. (read more)

I am very pleased that this version of Norton Antivirus doesn't interfere with my operating system - Windows XP. My last Norton Antivirus caused windows to crash fairly regularly.
You can trial it from Norton website before you buy - I recommend this to give you peace of mind that it will get on well with the rest of your system/software.
Recommended - can't fault (read more)
