Free AV (Norton 2005) + Ad-Aware SE + more. Look at: http://pack.google.com/
cool great offer
Anyone here installed this Google Pack and can tell us how it went using this pack?
Yep typical of over rated Google. OK I do use Google but what all the hype about this search engine. I think there are just as good search engines out there.
And plus also including Nortons, couldn't they get anything better
Norton works quite well. It used to be quite bloated. I haven't used it since I had to upgrade to use it with Windows 2000 but I've heard it's a lot leaner now.
Has anyone here used Norton lately and can therefore comment on how good or bad it is?
I have the 3 user version of NAV 2005 which has stuff not in the single user retail version.
I disable Autoprotect when I'm running a backup, or when REQUIRED by a software install, otherwise NAV's AutoProtect is always enabled.
Of course, the useless Office add-in is disabled.
But "bloated" in comparison to what?
There is an old English saying "Once bitten twice shy", which translates into sorry but personally I will never try any of their software ever again.
As I said Norton used to be slow and bloated but I haven't used a recent version and was asking for the experiences of those that had. I run NOD32 and it is considerably faster at scanning than the Norton of old. I hear recent versions of Norton are much faster.
They need to choose another AV software to the pack...
trend micro internet security would of been a better choice
free norton2006,i can use for a long time
but norton is not good,because i use mcafee now.
I run NIS2006 on my gaming rig ( intel 2.6 w/ 1 gig of ram) and have no problems with slow down issues (system drag), if that helps. I don't disable anything while playing.
Well, they want to relaunch Norton....they are probably loosing customers. If they would have choosen KAV or NOD32 I may download it.
