I have tried it once or twice before I decided to go ahead and buy N2009.
Then I got that same symptom as you describe, even with the genuine product.
Norton had found out about it and sent an update that blocked my program when it detected the trial reset.

I had to run the trial reset again and disable it, to make it stop reseting.

Oh, and a quick format won't get rid of it either. It's in the root sector.

Greetz.
I dont remember, I know I had to download something because I DID have Norton 2009 BEFORE it worked with windows 7, I guess the trail had ran out even though I only had it installed for about 30 minutes.
Quick google search, and a boot into safe mode fixed this problem.

Not many can top that.
My point is that NOD32 does top that. No other av software has passed as many as NOD32 has.

While that may be, you cannot compare your company's (and the others) methods, to another, larger, well known (and hated) company. =|

You're right. Although missing two viruses in ten years of testing is hardly a reason not to buy Norton.
I did use NOD32 for 5 years and I liked it, but I had some issues with it, performance wise, and some little bugs that are still not solved, that..well .. bugged me.
And it did miss 7 viruses on my server that Norton did detect.

I hated Norton's products, because they made my system run notably slower.

But the 2009 suite is the fastest. A lot faster than Nod32.
I want an AV product to hardly be noticed.
Norton does that, and is among the best in detection, although it's not the best.

So I decided to go for usability and speed and sacrificed maybe 1% of safety for it.

Between the top 5 AV's I guess it's a matter of taste and preference.

I would never advise against NOD32, because it is an excellent product.

Has anyone noticed when you have ESET NOD32 and a your downloading a 50MB+ .EXE file in Firefox it freezes at 99% and firefox doesn't respond? When I had Norton this dident happen!

It's a "beta", not an "alpha". Beta releases rarely go through major changes. They have minor tweaks and fix bugs. They don't change the way the interface works or color schemes. I have been a beta tester for many a "large" company as well. In fact, my company was a million dollar software company, so it certainly wasn't "small". I speak from many years experience here.

The overall interface as well as the color scheme just does not appeal to me in the least. I prefer something much more professional looking.

It's ok F5, I forgive you.

Between the major players, it's a matter of personal preference.

All the suites have their strengths and their weaknesses.
