I am at present running the following
Windows 98 SE & Norton Antivirus 2002

I have recently received an update offer at this site
which is quite an advance on the current 2002 model.

I would be grateful for an opinion on the offer from any one who has taken the offer up,or may have perused the offer and formed an opinion.

forget it.

several reasons for that. the later symantec products have been problematic and even worse when used on 98. at the moment i can't even run the GUI for nortons, and i have seen the same fault on several 98 pc's. then theres the amount of pc's i've seen thayt nortons fails to find virus's etc (while thats often a problem casued by users i've seen fully update nortons miss older virus's).

lastly there are plenty of FREE products that will do the same job better. eg avg, avast, spybot, adaware, zonealarm, kerio etc.

i certainly wouldn't waste $$$ buying symantec AV and firewall.

Seems these issues come in batches, I think I have seen 9 comps in teh last week that had a broken nortons and were infected with viruses....
