The older versions of Norton upto 2008 were a problem for speed and size but not anymore, infact last year was voted one of the fastes antivirus engines.

i will be giving this a go since i was given a years subscription for testing the older versions.
Public beta testers get a year's subscription?

Yes I did. They sent me an email thanking me and gave me a registration for Notron 360 v3.

Well cool but only ever worked with builds prior to 7077.

I've never liked Norton, and my taste hasn't changed, but to be fair I am giving them all a go. At the moment I have the latest Norton trial (only 2 weeks tight gits), and this attachment is what Windows Health Check tells me:

I will be having a go at all the trials, so will post any problems up here.

I too was sick of new pc's with Norton bloatware, but a good friend told me that gone are the days of Norton taking over your resources. on his advice i gave it a go, and havent looked back. i installed NIS 2009 back in November 08, and i am still using it now. it is the least intrusive Intrernet security i have ever used, it takes seconds to configure, and is not intrusive in anyway, in fact i dont even need to schedule a scan as it does it itself when the PC is idle.

It has been inconsistent in working with win 7 x86 dependant on which build it was, but i am using NIS 2009 on build 7100 x64, and it works perfectly. At the moment it is fluctuating between 0% & 1% cpu usage, and whilst scanning, it is between 7% & 35%, but as i said it scans automatically during idle time, so i never notice any usage. It installs in under 2 minutes, and a full scan with over 500,000 items scanned takes around 10 minutes, if you choose to scan yourself that is.

seriously, things have changed dramatically with Norton, and i cant speak highly enough of it. i never thought i would ever be saying that that a few years ago. If you are basing your opinion on Norton of the past, then i thoroughly recommend trying out the new versions, you will be surprised IMO.

Be careful..I dont think you are allowed to say anything positive about Norton on these forums.The experts(usually Kaspersky users, who quote all the false positives their baby finds) take offence.they havent realised yet that their favoured product is now actually the resource hog compared with recent Norton. I do obviously exclude Nod/Eset users from this as theirs is the only product that can match Norton for detection and resource usage.

Since the release of Norton 360, it has progressively used less and lass CPU and RAM, whilst still maintaining the high detection and removal rate. I'd give it a go, it's worth it.
