I have been given a brand new Norton 360 package.

Has anyone used or is currently using this product?
What do you think of it?

I have AVG antivirus, Sunbelt Personal Firewall, Spybot-SD Resident and AD-Aware SE Personal

Will the Norton be more efficient in anyway than what i currently have?

Thanks for ur time all

:thumbsup:

Although Norton is as good as any other well known anti-virus program, it is known to be a resource hog that slows down your system. Norton products require numerous services and running processes that use a lot of your system resources. However, I have read that Norton 360 is a bit easier on your system. I've also read that Norton 360 does not support Firefox or Opera browsers and does not include wireless security tools. Another drawback is that Norton products can be difficult to remove if you decide you want something else.

As for All-in-one tools and suites, they generally use more system resources than separate programs that do the same task. Further, they tend to have varying degrees of strengths and weaknesses for each feature. In contrast, separate tools are designed, built and maintained with a greater focus in a specific area so they are generally of better quality. This means the program's performance for that particular feature is usually superior than their all-in-one counterpart. Finally, all-in-one tools generally do not allow the user as much flexibility in tailoring default settings and usage.

Norton Internet Security 2008 is another alternative. It is a must have upgrade over NIS 2007 and 2006. It is also easier on the system and has Wireless Network Protection.
