    Hello,

    I feel that over the last few years norton products have improved. They are fast to install,dont use much memory or cpu and provide frequent updates.

    one Issue I do have with the current norton products is the fact that the program keeps nagging to create a norton account. If you kill the nag window with task manager you kill the GUI as well which is hardly ideal.

    I do not, creating a Norton account takes 30 seconds and it saves your product key and things like that. It never bothers you again after you create it. Been using Norton since 2009 only created my account once.

    I have never seen the Norton Nag Window. But then again I have a Norton Account since about 2002, probably will not be renewing Norton at the end of this year. I am very satisfied with Webroot / MSE and MBAM running.

    Yes, as I occasionally install a Norton product in a virtual machine to check/test something out.
