I prefer this business model too.

About the initial post,
Now that I know my daughter can use it for 6 months, I will wait with buying the license untill that expires.

Have you tried executing the threat ? You will be surprised by the detection rates of the SONAR2 engine. Remember that NIS has many detection engines that kick in at variaous times. So trying to right-click a file on disk to scan it and saying that it doesn't get detected really means nothing in NIS/NAV.

Its time consuming to run lots of malware to test SONAR2, but personally I have run a few run known pieces of malware and SONAR2 detection rates are well into the 90% (WITHOUT ANY SIGNATURES) which is better than all engines out there.

Also, even though Norton is doing great in these tests, where it really shines and what really matters, is the dynamic tests where threats are detected purely based on behaviors.
