Hi Isabella. I've got Norton Internet Security Professional. I bought it at the beginning of this year it cost me about £60. I downloaded straight from their website. Given my gross technological inadequacies, it WORKED. So yes, it was easy. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Norton SystemWorks 2003 and Norton Internet Security 2003 you can get info of them from www.symantec.com (http://www.symantec.com/product/index_homecomp.html) has prices there but if you shopped around I'm sure that you could get them cheaper. Ibought the above 2 as a bundle for £60 about $90 well worth it

Hi Isabella,

I bought Norton for under 30 pounds sterling (plus p&p). I only recently installed it (in a fit of paranoia - which I think you saw) and had no problems. Not only can I get all their protection/updates for a year, but this happens automatically. And you can renew the subscription without, as I understand - paying full wack again.

I guess only the techno-geeks can really say which is better, McFee or Norton, and I'm willing to bet none of them agree! ;)

I would add:-

"O, what a world of vile ill-favoured faults
Looks handsome in three hundred pounds a year!

Have I been ripped off? Everybodies is cheaper then what I paid. gnashing of teeth. I have heard that MCAFEE is better but I will proll renew my Norton subsription.

By the way, Isabella. I do a lot of online shopping. It was in order to protect my credit card details that I bought Norton in the first place. I get a fair few 'Trojan' horsey thingies popping up??? I think that means that someone is trying to illegally access my PC. But, what would I know? Worth having Norton though. :D

If I knew that there would be additional benefits I'd by McFee in an instant. I'm so worried about the computer being screwed I reckon it would be worth the extra few quid.

Hiya John http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif You may have spotted elsewhere a post I replied to where I said my Norton security deleted a 'sobig' virus? I would not have noticed as it was attached to a regular email I get on a weekly basis. Man, was I glad of Norton. I would probably been off line for ever!!

Sometimes it doesn't help on WindowsXP! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif

Hey All!! Well, I have Mcaffee, and love it. No problems other than figuring it out at firt. you can customize it like the rest, with a thing called "browser buddy". It lets you set everything up, filters, pop block etc... from the status bar. I have received no viruses

Hello Isabella, http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Iíve been using Norton Antivirus for about 7yrs. It has intercepted many viruses; so far, no viruses have made it pass Norton. Simple interface, user friendly.

Disclaimer; I have no connections with Symantec; Iím just a satisfied customer.
