    Sigh... I really feel for organizations like Norman, does anybody really bother with them these days? The previous reply speaks enough.

    Just cus they dont do well in the big tests doesnt mean they dont do well in the real world but they should really lower their prices!

    I was beta testing and it performed very well, I believe their detection ratings could improve but it's still a decent piece of software and very very light!

    "Norman SandBox® detects this malware going through the data file, looking for shell (executable) code. When found, the SandBox will locate the entry point of the code and allow the malware to run its course. When malware is allowed to execute its game in the simulated environment, such as initiating API calls to delete files from the system, the API calls are intercepted by the SandBox. Files are then deleted in the SandBox, but not in the actual system. In this way, SandBox technology allows the malware to believe that it inflicted damage when in fact it did nothing but reveal itself to the SandBox."

    Sounds kinda like sandboxie.

    Yep, years back I remember them with "sandbox" technology.

    Sometimes the truth hurts, and Norman has had PLENTY of chances.:rolleyes: :)

    Seriously though, even if it was great now, isn't it more expensive?

    yes Norman is a very expensive product IMO and they really need to cut their prices down . You can have AVIRA or another product for less money and better security

    If they would lower their prices, offer a nice free AV like Avast, Avira etc. and promote the hell out of it maybe they would get somewhere. Until then they're gonna be the classic "Whatever happened to them....?" company.
