We have made available a beta pre-release version of Norton Internet Security 2009 and Norton 360 3.0 for you to test with the latest Release Candidate (RC) of Windows 7. You can download the Windows 7 compatible builds of Norton Internet Security and Norton 360 by visiting this page:

On this page, you can choose which Norton product you prefer to test. These new Windows 7 Compatible builds will not contain any new or enhanced features. These builds will ONLY focus on Windows 7 compatibility.

For this build, activation is not available. We will refresh this build in a few days, and have activation keys available for the refreshed build. However, there is no activation available this initial Public Beta build. I apologize for this inconvenience, however you will have 7 days to test this build before it expires.

I renewed my Norton subscription for 2 years right before I started using Windows 7, and it rapidly became unusable when they started updating it (Norton), but worked at first.

Then I found that NOD32 had come a long way, and its trials worked like a dream.

And now Norton is finally doing betas that expire in 7-14 day periods and look to require multiple reinstalls, etc.

And now I have a wasted Norton subscription since I'm thinkin' it's simply time to settle in on the ESET/NOD32 stuff if this is the way it's going to go....

Stay as far away as possible from Norton.
It is the biggest piece of bloat.
I would not let it any where near my machine.

Why is so?

Btw, on Vista x86 I used Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 and on Windows 7 x64 it doesn't seem to work properly. From time to time internet connection freezes or the whole computer stops working. So I was wondering to give Norton a try ....

I chose avast! over AVG because I noticed it was slowing my system down. Now if you choose Norton, boy oh boy will there be a noticeable difference in CPU usage.

I use Avira AntiVir Premium and it's a great AV with unmatched detection rates. It's lightning fast and it works flawlessly on Windows 7, btw.

Avast and Arira are your safe bets now. I agree with Decca. Norton is to kept far away.

I have Norton Internet Security 2009 installed on two PCs with both Vista & XP and i see no difference in CPU or memory usage between them and for instance Bitdefender or any other i've tried before. Shame is only that Norton is late with adapting their products for Seven. On Seven i use NOD32(and it's very good) just because they're late.
I don't know about commercial products from AVG or Avira ,but their freeware is at least said crap!!

Recommend anybody that wants a good, working Internet Security for Win 7. ESET SS 4.0.424. I had a problem with v 4.0.417 staying activated on AV and AS. V 4.0.424 has worked perfect with no hitch, also recommend setting the FW to interactive.
