    sorry but I did have to sign a nondisclouser form to beta test it. So I won't be able to post any screen shots or comment on the product.
    But so far I think it is going to be a good setup once out of beta and the final release is out.

    Its Nortons answer to McAfee TotalProtection and Microsoft Onecare.

    Antivirus, firewall,antispyware, clean up tools and stuff like that.

    A simplified version of the features of Norton 360:

    Not sure if it is replacing Norton SystemWorks. Since Norton Recycle Bin and Norton Utilities were missing from Norton 360. :'(
