    Read reviews/comparatives by AV-C, AV-Test, Virus Bulletin and you will find something interesting about it :D
    bad detection, high f/p, high resource usage, etc...

    It has kept its old look since v.7 or even earlier. Now that the GUI has been completely redesigned, Norman seems to be more responsive on my test VM.

    Agreed. Their retail prices for their Home versions are far too high.

    But you generally find that this correlates with the vendor making most of their money with the Small Business/Enterprise versions.

    Norman did quite well in the latest VB RAP test I would say, if you look at the past I mean :)

    I tested their standalone free malware cleaner which is huge @ 200mb+ in a VM it got 66%. Isn't the best, isn't the worst but it's a free tool you can use without installing and keep in your toolbox.

    Norman uses also Lavasoft's Ad-aware engine for anti-spyware protection, anti-keyloggers, ... . Keep in mind that Norman was the first security developer who used a sandbox.
