Wow, how old are you, 10?

Norton Utilities used to be the best thing in the world in the 80's. So, Norton is all good now? I wouldn't know, their 15+ year track record of being absolutely horrible, overpriced bloatware since Symantec bought them has kept me from even listening to what they might have done recently.

I don't care. Anything Norton can do I can find something that does it better for free. And the last time I paid them any money, it actually went to Peter Norton.

how old are you? Are you commenting about stuff you haven't researched/used?
who's the immature one now.

Norton has greatly stepped up their game as far as detection goes. I haven't used any recent version of their AVs, but I also heard they're lightweight compared to the predecessors.

I wouldn't have recommended virus protection at all before I worked at Staples.

Norton is the only suite we push really, and while there are other good ones out there, I get it for free for working at the store. Which means I tried it out, as a skeptic. I was pleasantly surprised, and the only reason I really push it to people is the fact that I personally was impressed with the feedback the program gave me.

Strange web behavior that isn't apparent? Norton will tell you.

The newest version even does definition and reputation scans on files as the come into your pc, so if one fails the other can warn you if a file is weird.

Norton is not good, Norton is amazing! Anyone who used it know how security suite should look/perform like, if you visit Wilders security forum, you will see what users there recommend and use...what OCN represent in terms of overclocking/hardware = Wilder security in terms of security products/knowlege, those guyse know alot more then us here trust me.

The Behavior module (real time protection) in NIS/NAV is just simply amazing, it caches everything you can trough it, the IPS (Intrusion prevention system is also very strong) and i won't even talk about the download intelegence...or Autoprotect modules. The only real copmetition are Kaspersky and Comodo, (HIPS based AV's with many layers of protection) other AV products are like 3 years back into time, trust me on this one.


Conclusion, the only security products, are worth to pay for are Kaspersky & Norton, others are really joke...and from free products, only 2...Avast & Comodo.

You sir are an example of person who didnt' used Norton last 6 years, and this peopple are the ones who bash without real world experience from first hand!


Oh and 1 more, this is an collection of results from various tests, fromt the most famous - official testing labs for 2010/2011,





On Demand: Raw detection capabilities of signitures when fully updated with latest definitions.

Retrospective: Capabilities of heuristics and generic signatures against new unknown malware.

Dynamic: Real world protection capabilities using all components of the security software to demonstrate effectiveness in the real world.

Removal: Effectiveness at cleaning a system from malware, the higher the score the better the product is at disinfection and removal of malware trace elements without damaging the system in the process.

Performance score (higher is better): All performance results are normalised to use the same AV-Comparatives scale (and takes scanning speed into account)

False Positives: Mean false positives across all tests with such information available. The results help to show which products are more prone to false positives and are not an exact result.

King of Tests: Personalised scoring system in an attempt to determine which antivirus solutions did the best across all the categories equally.

Bloatware?????
