Windows 7: Norton Subscription Fees makes no sense.

Norton Subscription Fees makes no sense.

Norton Subscription fee is $90 for a year, yet I bought the program for $50 how does that make sense ? You would think Norton would offer the subscription fee for atleast $50 for a year and $80 for (2) years which is currently $180 for (2) years. I've grown accustom to Norton 360 but I will dump it without hesitation because of these subscription fee costs.

Relax

The way to overcome this high fee is to prurchase the program new. Search the net for cupons and deals and you'll make out. Now if you buy the very same program that you are presently running the key for the new one should work on it. Try to update your present software to the very latest ver. before it expires. If your new key works you won't even have to reload.

Asking how come there is no "Like" button like some other forums/sites have.

Been discussed before, not worth the extra overhead. There's a Rep System already, and you could always just say +1 or ditto.

IMO Norton is an infection as bad as any virus, taking control of your system and throttling Win7 to nowhere near it's native instantaneous state. It even takes a removal tool to uninstall it like some kind of serious virus.

It's a big money racket preinstalled on most new retail computers to sucker users who'll never know how well Win7 truly runs. Sometimes trying to remove it damages system files so badly it requires a reinstall just to shake it off your leg.

It used to be really bad, but improved greatly with 2010 and 2011 versions. While I too stayed away for years, I would seriously consider them again if I needed a paid for solution.

Every time I considered using a paid solution, I spent many hours researching reviews, Performance stats, firewall usability, How much control you have over the software. Almost every time I made up my mind on getting a paid one I would use it for about three months then go back to free. Simply because they suit me better. In the end its all user preference.
