    Norton Internet Security 2009
    Regarding this post
    http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=110665

    And my recomendation at the end.

    I am so confident that you will like NIS 2009, that I will give 3 of you 1 key valid for 1 year on 3 PCs.

    All you have to do is download the trial from Norton, and if you honestly like it just post here and I will PM you a legit key for it. I only have 3 so first 3 to like it get them.

    All i ask in return is if you like it and have a blog you link to me (but you don't gotta).

    Edited to add video of an install i did

    After being a loyal Norton customer for over 10 years I've gotta say -not even if you gave me a new notebook would I install NIS on any machine I own. Never again! It's bad, it slows down performance and is far from affiliate friendly. NFW!

    I'll take the key. Norton has improved a lot. They are not the best, but they are a lot better than they used to be

    I understand that Haiko, and I was the same way. If you read my review I laughed at norton for claiming the things they did, and in conversations with Symantec I have told them they have a huge IMAGE problem because of the past.

    If you omit the fact that NIS 2009 is a Symantec product and give it a try you will be amazed.

    1 minute install, no longer a resource hog and it's not just them talking out their ass its true.

    It is supposed to be the best out there. Amazing, considering it is a Norton product

    BTW I think I have to add that I don't work for Norton, I just have been so impressed by the improvements that I'm trying to let everyone know how great it is IMO.

    I have to agree with Haiko on this I would never install anything Norton Related. It is one thing to install Norton but it is another thing to try to uninstall Norton. Norton was good around 10 years ago but I have grown to hate the word. I am a network admin with 5000+ users and would never install a Norton product on any of my workstations.

    HardwareGeek I beleive you if you say they have improved but it will be a long time before I would ever try them again.

    Hey Kse, try it on your personal computer. I promise you it will change your mind, even the uninstall process which I did test as well is improved.

    I was like you an haiko, I would of laughed 2 weeks ago if I said I would ever recomend Norton.

    I was pleasantly surprised. It really has been overhauled. I have refused in the past to work on anybody's PC that had NIS if they wouldn't let me uninstall it.

    Send me where you would like the link to go to.

    Anyone want the other key, I know giving away symantec is like giving away dog poo, but what if the dog poo turned into gold you'd take it. So come on someone take my last key.

    Gave up Norton since 2003. I am so happy with my ZoneAlarm 5.5 + hijackthis

    Just learn that Haiko is on the same boat with me hahaha

    Let me add more point, I would rather choose Avast rather then Norton, be frank.

    to each their own, but sometimes people/companies deserve chance

    avast uses more resources and finds less viruses than Norton 2009. I've tested it.

    Norton does have it's problems a big one is poor performance of the pc. But i agree that it is still in the upper echelons when it comes to online security

    the big problem you mention has been corrected in the 2009 version.

    The only problem they have now is an image probem.

    Count me in among the pleasantly surprised. I've been running it for a few days, and there's no noticeable bloat. I can't really tell that it's even running, except on the odd occasion when it catches a virus in an email.

    over 2 weeks of useage.

    3% CPU useage is the most useage you get from NIS with the exception of the start of a scan when it jups to 10% but it does that with every single av scanner out there but right after the start it goes down.

    uses less than 4MB of memory on my system.
