What do you guys reckon bout NIS 2009? Personally, I like it. Seems lighter on resources and faster overall. Have had no bad experiences with it neither. So all sweet here :2cents:

There are much better ones to spend your money on - Eset is best - or Avast for free!

I take it you have actually used NIS 2009.

It is actually getting very good review and favourable comments from people who are using it.
According to a recent AV-Test.org group test, NIS 2009 is a top-tier security product.

I've tested it.

More of the same norton bloat. It's better than all the versions since 2003, but still horrible. Anyone who buys nortons over an Eset, Kaspersky or Bit Defender Security Suite needs their head examined.

Still the same old rubbish - Worked on a PC last week - riddled with infections, had the Internet antivirus This one - shown on bleeping Computer (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/malware-removal/remove-internet-antivirus) - removed a further 230+ spyware - YET Norton said it was clean - the bugs had killed Nortons- its own uninstall from Add/remove programs said and I quote " can only remove programs installed - please reinstall Norton Security" --- well DURHHHH :waughh: had to run the Norton Removal Tool.

Once Norton removed, installed Nod32 and found a further 5 Trojans.

Installed the trial version NIS 2009 on a imaged infected PC a few weeks ago to test, only found 4 of the infections, with Nod it had 15 found.

Experience has taught me over the years that Norton's products tend to be more bloatware than anything else... I have yet to come across a system running a Norton product which is stable...

I would never recommend a Norton's product over anything else such as ESET or AVAST... hell I would recommend AVG over Norton any day...

Personal preference rules here though....

Most home users would user Norton's over anything else simply because they don't know any better!!!
