    Bottom Line:
    I've never seen a security suite with as many distinct security tools. Antivirus is stellar and antispam good, but many other tools are flawed. Wait for the next version. If you're a subscriber, turn off automatic updates until things improve.

    Pros:
    Powerful antivirus. Good accuracy in spam protection. Simple design makes it easy to access huge set of features. Most features configured for full protection right out of the box.

    Cons:
    Antispyware wrecked some test systems. Design problems in antispyware. Firewall's default configuration lacks inbound protection. URL logging endangers privacy. Slows system performance.
