Windows 7: Norton 360 and windows 7

Norton 360 and windows 7

Hi everyone.
I have 13 days left on the subscription of Norton that was on the computer when I bought it in December.
It has ran ok and no problems with it. I am trying to make my mind up about replacing it with the Norton 360 version which is £30 at PC world when the subscription runs out.
So my question is ...Has anyone used it with windows 7 and was it good bad or just rubbish.
I might try the free ones kicking about but thought i would go this route first. Thanks for any input chaps and chapesses.

Ive not used 360, but Norton Internet Security is very good...much better than previous programs from Norton...well worth the $$..

I have used Norton 360 latest version. But sometime or other, I get the symantec engine compatibility error message. But 360 stays with a green tick. Used it for a week and then removed. Much improvement u can see.

Never, the last sentence is for Symantec themselves. They have improved a lot nowadays is wat I meant. NIS is equally too gud and really love the pulse updates.

Hi there, I m currently testing Norton 360 V4 beta and I must say that its very light weight and effective.

Thanks everyone. I know the program on the computer is just called "Norton internet security" and that is from the "About" section on the drop down menu. I know how to remove this program when needed, but I am just wondering now, if when I load the 360 that would do the job for me.
What do you think.

You'll need a removal tool for that. As for me, Norton 360 was recently updated to v3.8 something and is perfectly stable and light on resources running on the ultraportable in my specs. However, if you don't want to pay, Microsoft Security Essentials is great too.
