    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 :mad:

    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. :thumbd:

    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.

    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.
