it uses very little system resources during normal usage. It does all its heavy processing when the system is idle.

It means when there is no user activity (usually mouse or keyboard activity) but the PC is still on. You can set how long since the last user activity before it starts things like scans and optimizations. The default is 10 minutes. If you come back to the PC and start using it again then the scans stop.

There is no difference between Norton Internet Security and Norton 360 security wise. Norton 360 is just like Norton Internet Security, it only has more features like Backup and Performance/Optimization Tools. Why would an antivirus software vendor treat their software unfairly/unequally security wise?

I'm using N360 v5 right now and it is a very good product.

I was pleased with N360 on Vista and continue to be so with N360 v3 on W7. Am I correct that in addition to keeping the Windows firewall OFF, I should also OFF Defender when running Norton? Mark
