Lots of geeks like those things.

And you don't have to click and see it.
When not invoked by the user, Norton 2010 does actually just sits there,
waiting for the moment you take a leak or go make some sandwiches,
in which case it starts doing it's job.
When you get back and move the mouse it stops immediately.

In all the months I've used it, it never intruded even once with stupid questions most AV's/FW's ask.
That is after you set it to silent of course, or maybe you missed that option?

I really don't see how anyone can objectively call Norton intrusive,
or make comments that say basically the same.
It's complete nonsense.

So far the only valid con I've seen is that Symantec takes too long to mark some malicious sites as bad.
The rest is mostly down talk from people who haven't even tried the 2010 version.
(Not implying you)

Greetings

I was going to type something like this right before I read this post. Been anti-Norton for a longtime - I don't mean a couple years, I mean a couple decades. Got a 1-year free subscription to their 2010 suite at the New Efficiency thing, thought I'd at least try it. Have not used 2010 for months, but I must say that so far it has far surpassed my expectations. Trust me, it's not the same crap they've been putting out.

I agree! I've had the last 2 versions of NIS and haven't had ANY problems with it....not trying to get in on the love/hate of NIS thread...

Nope. I have tried running Ccleaner after uninstalling Norton and it hardly leaves any traces. Its a great improvement over its previous products.

Gr8!

A new AV to test!

On my third comp i had a norton anti-virus and it was very slow
(shutdown was abt 5 minutes on a XP SP1)
When i replaced it with BitDefender there was just too much junk left behind
(and i was a noob then-didn't know how to reinstall a system).

I'll see maybe it's that good to be used(again!)
