More gamers talk about their experience with Norton Internet Security Suite 2009…
Which isn’t to say it’s bad – it’s just not for me.I was given a free, fully functional, copy of Norton Internet Security Suite 2009 at SGL on the condition I wrote a small review of it afterwards. I deleted Norton, and I won’t reinstall it – free or not. It was too annoying for my liking. If I had been provided with just the anti-virus, my opinion might be different, but as a security suite, it’s just too protective. For example, every time I go to login to a site, Norton pops up and begs me to use it’s Password Manager system. No. I don’t want to use your rubbish. Or the Norton Firewall, which I had to disable every time I wanted to create a game in Warcraft or playing over Hamachi. Thankfully uninstalling it proved less hassle than previous versions, and the install process to its credit was painless as well – but that counts for nothing if the product itself isn’t worth it. Which isn’t to say it’s bad – it’s just not for me.
Pretty much all of the things I hated about Norton products were fixed in this version…If you’ve ever had a worm destroy your system, or have a nasty trojan lag you in the middle of gaming, you’ll understand the need for a solid anti-virus program. Thankfully, that’s what I got – for free, no less, at SGL – and much more, in Norton’s Internet Security Suite 2009. Installation was a breeze, taking just a minute, and after a quick update I restarted my machine, keen to see what footprint Norton would leave on my machine. Nope, still booted as fast as usual. Everything ran smoothly, and thanks once I’d put on the silent mode I never really noticed Norton on my machine again. Occasionally Norton popped up to ask if I wanted it to store my passwords, identities, but I quickly turned those off and Norton went back to doing its thing in the background. Any interruption could be avoided, and the best thing of all: Norton only used 10mb of memory in the background! Pretty much all of the things I hated about Norton products were fixed in this version – and I got it just for writing a review! You’d be hard pressed not to be happy with that, so thanks SGL, and thank you Symantec.
