View Full Version : New Norton Actually Good?

06-01-2011, 08:51 PM
I have heard that Norton 2011 is actually good and is a great improvement on the old version. Is this true?

Then again you don't have to do much to improve Norton. Or have people from symantec been injecting their users with morphine to make them think it's good?

Personally I can't be bothered with Norton any more.

I use MSE. And if I was going to pay then Nod32.

I use the 360 version 360 V4. seems ok, can't complain I guess. seems to do that MSSE doesnt. so far neither have missed or found anything different

Too late for it to be any good. If it wasnt so bloated, (and useless before) then people would probably use it now

Heard where? Some Mag review?
Bloat may be one thing but it's biggest failing was that it never found bugger all. Doubt that's changed.

havent used nortons(stop swearing :yuck:) for about 3 and a half years.

I believe the performance impact on your system is a lot less than it used to be with Norton.

However I don't think it's the best for actual detection rates.

It does seem to run better than the old versions, still not as fast as NOD32, BUT it still misses too many viruses / trojans.
