Pros: What I like most about security software is that it has a solid programming, it has high security standards in terms of online computer protection, software update and content download, it has a threat warning system and even software that I want to install considers threats, is a very complete system and covers all the components of the computer

Cons: The least I like is precisely that it does not distinguish between the threats that come from the network and those programs that I want to install and the software stops these downloads and installations, this type of systems makes it necessary to turn off the internet alert, leaving the device unprotected for a few minutes, being vulnerable

Overall: The main benefit I get is that my computer retains the configuration that it brought from the beginning, that is, from when I bought it, which makes the security system a robust and solid element when protecting the software that works on my computer.

Pros: Norton is a good anti-virus for individual use as it has daily updates on the latest threats, Trojans, Worms,etc. It is really easy to use and has a modern design which makes navigation through the software fairly easy.

Cons: It can get pricey compared to its competitors and lacks protection in some cases when compared to leading anti-viruses such as Kaspersky but overall is decent.

Pros: What I like the most about the antivirus is that it warns me when I have to do a maintenance to my computer related to the search and cleaning of viruses, when I am connected to the internet and I have a threat on my computer, and the best thing is that it takes care of the security of my computer, I do not handle much these details, however I feel comfortable with the software

Cons: What I like least about the software is that the search and cleaning of viruses is a very slow process and stops my computer a bit, I understand that it is for my safety, but sometimes it takes time and the computer gets very slow, causing the delay of work

Overall: The benefits are protection against viruses and threats that my computer may suffer during the exposure when it connects to internet or a memory device

Pros: You need protection and this is what we use. Norton gives us the security we need whether it's work related or personal computer/internet use. We have not been infected yet and I give Norton full credit.

Cons: Like any software Norton Security might have certain conflicts with other programs. Prime example is using Norton Security with Windows Defender they don't like each other. I was able to resolve any conflicts I had with the assistance of customer support.

Overall: Preventing malware issues.

Pros: What I like most about the software is the defense against computer viruses, the scanning of the most sensitive parts of the computer, hard disk and ram memory, and the control of access to the computer in terms of the ports of entry and exit of computers. In addition, the software announces the viruses and scans required by the computer according to the browsing time and pages that are most used.

Cons: what I like the least is the continuous blocking of the internet connection by the software, it does so because it changes the ports of entry and exit of the internet, however, knowing the software can correct these changes but it is not what more suitable for software, since the software updates are for the virus base, not to make changes in the configuration of ports on a specific machine

Pros: It gives good protection against vulnerabilities, preventing possible external threats from taking advantage of weak points in the PC software that is used.
I have seen that once installed it does not affect the speed of the equipment.

Cons: Poor performance against spyware and other threats although it can supposedly act against them because it recognizes and eliminates very few.

Overall: The main advantage that it has and I like is that it has a very friendly and easy to use interface, as well as the good recognition it has of applications that do not have to block, or lose time analyzing them.

Pros: Easy to use, intuitive and very useful. Offers more than virus protection: back-up and restore, tune-up and password vault.

Cons: Tries to push LifeLock software. Requires different versions for different regions (what we use in the US cannot be used in, say, Ukraine: you need a different version of the software).

Overall: I know that our PCs (and phones) are protected from intrusions, malware, and other internet dangers. Virus scan, safe web surfing, buck-up and restore, and PC tune-up are very valuable features that I find most useful in everyday use of my PC at work, as well as at home.

Pros: What I really likes this software is the way it makes you feel: always protected. Nowadays, surfing online you can get a lot of problems, but with Norton you are safe. Its always watching you and the pages you visit, and if it feels that could be a dangerous page, do not let you in.
Another PRO is in Outlook. Its doesn't make your PC slow like others antivirus.

Overall: The best anti-virus you can buy!

Pros: The most popular antivirus out there still does what it knows best. Protect you against viruses and actively scan while you work or game. The team behind this carefully updates it with the latest protection, and more than that offer good blogs on how to protect your organisation's or personal computers against the latest threats. I personally find this service alone of great use.

Cons: Poor application for iPhones. I do not recommend paying the same amount of money for a subscription if you will use that subscription on an iPhone. There are serious limitations to it as it only protects you online but will not scan the phone for viruses or let you know what apps are using personal data or mobile data as it does on android. I consider this a serious con and unless they upgrade the application they should probably pull it out of the appstore.

Another con would be how difficult it is to manage multiple subscriptions if you buy a bunch for your organisation. Emails with download links are sent via norton, and from norton, and most often you will need to share the company norton login with all your staff to make it register the subscription details. This is unacceptable.

In addition, their new Wi-Fi protection (VPN) subscription do not allow you to see AT ALL which devices are protected and use a licence. We already bought a year long subscription, but had we known that managing licenses was impossible for VPNs, we would have chosen another program.

Overall: Norton is still the big kid in the block. It offers great protection and blogs to keep you updated with the latest threats and how to combat them. However, it sadly falls short in the license management part.

Pros: It works. I mean, if it didn't stop the bad guys then what is the point of it right? If you have a powerful enough PC you probably won't notice it. But if you have a entry level machine you are going to be very frustrated.

Cons: The software does the trick but they rope you into using their software simply because it is on the computer already. It slows down the system and runs continuously in the background. You almost have to be a tech wizard to remove it from your system.

Pros: You just can't beat the Norton's antivirus line of products. There is a reason they have been rated one of the best protection products for many years. In all the years I have been using this product, I have never had Any problems. It is easy to download and easy to renew. It's great to have the piece of mind that my computer and data are protected. You will not be disappointed .

Cons: I do not like the auto renew function, but it is easy to turn off. You can get it cheaper on other websites, than on the Norton website, so shop around before you buy. No other complaints.

Pros: It¿s good antivirus software that works pretty well, has a lot of options in settings and it didn¿t seem to bog down my computer when it¿s running.

Cons: It¿s pretty much the same as a lot of other antivirus software out there. If bought at a low price it¿s worth it but you have to watch out for there auto-resubscribe that will charge you an inflated price for a new year after your subscription is up. I had to cancel because they were going to charge me twice the normal rate I was paying for a year.

Using Norton is easy and it does it's job without me having to think about anything. It runs in the background. I can set it to run when I want it. Most importantly, I have not received any viruses since using Norton.

Cons: The customer support is very good. The only con I would say to it, is it is mostly done through online communication. The 800 support is not very extensive.

Overall: NO viruses on any of my computers.

Pros: Norton is an easy to use software to install on any of your computer's and know that your computer is going to be safe from any viruses or any other dangers that may invade your computer. I was alerted the minute there was a threat to my computer and that alone was worth the cost of the software for saving my computer. They also remind you to update any upgrades and reinstall every year.

Cons: Its so easy to install and start using, although it kind of stopped there. For someone who didn't know the program beforehand, there isn't any explanation of how things work and how it's going to protect you and your computer. You're kind of just trusting that it does. I wanted to know more about what the program did so that I could better use it and better protect my computer.

Overall: Its reliable and easy to use software that I know is protecting my computer, which has a high value on it. Its got a name I feel I can trust because it's built a solid reputation.

Pros: I liked that it walked me step by step through the process of uploading the software. The program helped me to uninstall the expired software from my computers.

Cons: I really struggle to find what I like least about the software. If I have to pick something it would be that I do not get a report on any threats that have been detected.

Pros: I have been a faithful user of Norton on all my devices (laptops, etc.). I also install it in my mother's and niece's laptops. So far, I can say we've been lucky with not having any issues concerning viruses. I do use other utilities along with Norton that probably help in the prevention of getting a virus, but overall I think Norton has been the most secure antivirus I have purchased.

Overall: Peace of mind, great security.

Pros: You will not have to worry with Norton as it is always running & stays up to date. What I really like is the power eraser tool & most features on the program.

Cons: Sometimes the program blocks certain programs that Norton may deem unsafe. I would have to disable the firewall to download the program without an issue. However, this is what it is built to do so I can't really complain.

Pros: Super easy to use and manage updates to the latest security updates. It runs in the background and I have had a couple times where it has blocked malicious downloads before they can affect my computer.

Cons: Sometimes Norton will flag legitimate websites for possible infections. I think it's good to be warned, but can get a bit annoying.

Pros: Perhaps the most important aspect of any antivirus program is its virus detection ability. Norton Antivirus has very good virus detection rates, especially with the 2009 Internet security version. Users who have Norton are generally pleased with its virus detection and prevention ability, and the program seems to be improving in this regard over time.

Cons: Perhaps the biggest knock against Norton Antivirus is its usage of system resources. Since antivirus software usually runs all the time, the amount of RAM it takes to run the program is memory the system will never be able to allocate to other tasks. Norton is notorious for using a hefty amount of RAM, which can cause other programs to run slowly. Symantec has attempted to alleviate this issue with its latest releases of Norton antivirus, but the program still tends to use more RAM than lightweight antivirus programs such as Avast and Avira AntiVir.

Overall: Since Norton Antivirus is a large and well-established program with strong industry ties, it enjoys strong support and constant virus updates, which help keep computers using Norton safe from the latest virus threats. The upside of paying for a virus service is that the producers have a vested interest in continuously improving it, while other products may not have devoted staff or adequate financial backing.

Pros: Overall the Norton Software is a gold standard in protection, we have trusted the product on several laptops over the years. It has great features you can "tweak" to your needs. Nortons various products has a solution for most needs.

Cons: When installing the product, if you have another version on the machine, there usually is some issues with installation. The program can also clash or cause issues when you are installing other programs or cause freeze ups. And I do not like the "auto renew" feature, although they do send plenty of warnings before the subscription renews.

Pros: When the software is scanning through a computer and examining files, the memory useage is minimal in comparison to other anti-virus software that is available out there. Great news about this is it has no impact upon what ever work you are doing on the computer.

Cons: When there is an issue with the software or a conflict with a windows update, the turn around for a fix is sometimes quite slow (this does not include virus'/malware), where i would personally expect an issue to be resolved within a week it can sometimes take upto 4 weeks.

Pros: Norton has updated there UI and it looks great. Norton's quick scan takes less than a few minutes and you could surly spare over 15 minutes for a complete scan.
The thorough antivirus engine swept up all the standard malware and adware we made available during our test and for those who want to update and go, post-scan behaviors like PC shutdown and hibernation are made available.

Norton Identity Safe, a password manager that secures your personal information, is vastly improved.

Cons: A negative there are fewer subscription options to choice from. Some uninformative tutorial guides. The numerous tools provided could look overwhelming since the tutorial doesn,t really explain their functionalities.

Overall: The benefit of the Norton Security software if that you do receive 5 licenses for every purchase which is helpful since we all use multiple devices at work. This software is better than the previous software versions of the past there is improvement.

Pros: While arguably far from the best Internet security solution out there, when used in conjunction with other antivirus/antimalware products, Norton Security provides an important role in maintaining cybersecurity. I like very much that it is difficult to tamper with the interface and also that on-boot and realtime scanning is offered.

Cons: It is extremely resource-intensive and can slow down your machine. In addition, on rare occasions, the program is too aggressive, picking up false positives or blocking access by legitimate sites via its firewall.

Overall: Cybersecurity, a degree of peace of mind.

Pros: Norton is a great product.....I received my Norton Disk online from Walmart....I found out that nothing is perfect.....The disk had a defect in it......Returned it to Walmart and they gave me a gift card for another one......Walmart will stand behind you if anything is not right.....I will continue using Norton products. This Norton Security has a lot of power and covers the bases pretty well in guarding against malware of various kinds, but it can be complex to set up and configure.

Cons: It also has one disturbing feature: When I put my computer in hibernation while I go to bed, I now and then find it running again when I return to the computer after a night s sleep. Doing a search on all files over the past day when this happens, I find sometimes that my computer was brought out of hibernation and back into operation less than an hour after I put it to sleep. So I ve resorted to switching off the power supply after the computer is fully hibernated to prevent an early awakening and waste of power while I m sleeping

Firefox compatibilty issues with norton identity safe.

Overall: I am using norton security premium version(previously called norton 360) since around 2006 and i came to the conclusion- It is a good protection software with good firewall, identity safe and good backup solution but with following shortcomings:-
1) The detection rate is average as it catches very few threats even after being one of the top scorers in various lab tests.
2) If one wants norton to detect hard to find threats, he/she has to download an extra tool called norton Power Eraser which defeats the purpose of Norton security premium.
3) The identity safe has compatibility issues with Firefox especially when a new update of firefox is released.

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: Just about everything. Slow, poor quality. You name it

Overall: Have never had luck with Norton products. They are clunky at best and want so much control over your machine they just aren't worth it. Lackluster protection. Countless false positives. Sad to be linked to Symantec

Disappointing and Annoying!

Comments: I ended up uninstalling the software. I initially installed it on my work PC. The popups were excessive, then the computer still ended up with AdWare, and Spyware. I ended up needing to search and uninstall the malicious software myself which is time consuming.

Pros: It has isolated and deleted many viruses over the years, and I believe my computer has stayed safe due to this software.

Cons: I do not like that when you renew a subscription, it deletes the remaining days on your old one. This means I have to wait till the very last day to renew, and potentially put my computer at risk if I forget.

Overall: I have been using the Norton security software for years. Not only does it protect my computer from malware and spyware, but it also regularly cleans up my registry and keeps my computer working at optimal speed. I can also check the security of a website before entering any personal information with one click since I have installed the toolbar.

Has protected my business and home very well!

Comments: Norton has stopped attacks and notified me of any threats. It has also stopped my kids or employees from downloading "risky" things from the internet that could contain viruses.
Happy with this software!!

I've had Norton Security several times, and in the end, I prefer something else.

Comments: I've used Norton Security on several occasions, and have often found it to be lacking in stability with the OS. The biggest frustration has been how it slows my system down (they may have addressed this, it's been a while). I have to terminate the program to get my PC speeds to normalize. Overall, it's got a lot of features, and if you aren't doing any heavy editing or anything, it would probably be just fine.
