    I checked the beta forums, and found the final versions have been released. They're available for download from the Symantec online store.

    Good find! I checked earlier and wasn't on. Downloading trial of NIS2009 now. Very tempted to try it out. I tried the last beta on my laptop and was very impressed as to how light it ran, often it updated etc.

    Ade 1, I've downloaded NIS 2009 and the Add-on Pack, but I'm going to image the hard drive before starting installation....just to be safe. :D

    Well I've just installed and it's running light as a feather on my system. I had a subscription to NIS2008 but it runs out on the 23rd of Sept - a day before the trial expires!

    Just upgraded here as well on Vista 32-bit. Smooth as silk, it automatically transferred over all my Log-in info and credit card info from the Identity safe feature.

    The system is fast!

    Love the speed of LiveUpdate
    Love the speed of the Scan
    Love the new UI
    Love the constant def updates every 5-10 minutes. With hourly updates, Kaspersky sucks big time.

    It seems to have only 2 services running (and before anyone asks how much ram it was about 30mb last time I looked) but there's no startup item been added which I've never known before. I too also like the pulse update feature. Just gonna perform a full scan now. By the way, does anyone know what 'Microsoft Office Automatic Scan' is under settings? It's off by default but do I presume it scans Office documents - a feature that was turned off by default also in NIS2008.

    'Microsoft Office Automatic Scan' will scan files prior to opening in MS Office 2000 onwards.
    It only works with MS Office products and so, if you have say OpenOffice, it be turned off.

    Let's not make this another Norton vs. Kaspersky thing. I'm still not a fan of Norton and discovery point is most important with updates. That said, when I briefly tried the beta, it was ok except for allowing too much with the firewall by default.

    Hi,

    I want to disable this option "Scan outgoing emails"

    But I am doing this, than I am getting Attention on main window.

    Is it possible to ignore this ? so I can disable this option and my norton ca show me Secure, rather than unsafe.


    I think NIS 2008 was having ignore option.

    Re: Norton 2009 Beta

    il see how the final is.
    i quite liked the beta.
    shame about it disabling windows defender=(
    windows defender in advanced mode has some nice features.

    the pulse updates are very regular

    wow i remember some year ago everybody hated Norton and complained about it and now everybody loves it, since the Development of Symantec started to care out what people customers have to say.

    They made it so norton will not slow down the pc anymore as old version like 2002 - 2007 and they made a strong heur SONAR, and now everybody want's Symantec - Norton :)

    How is the SONAR in this new version 2009? is it strong heur or ?

    Thanks for the answers guys. I have installed..............and wow, this is the suite I have been searching for and so far not found.
    Thank goodness symantec eventually listened to their customers. Perhaps others should take note now.

    The detractors of Norton will be silenced. The final version of NIS is incredibly light as it was during my beta testing. With attempts to improve heuristics (which was my major request) it remains to be seen if they are up to par with Avira. If they are, this is the one of the finest new AV products in the last ten years.:thumb:

    I'm sure it won't be long before the Norton bashers start to appear here.....I only suggest to them to either try this first and then post or not to post at all! Still can't believe how light this is.

    LOL i used to be a norton basher but this version has changed my opinion.
    pulse updates every 5mins, light as a feather and not annoying. plus doesnt use much disc space.
    23mins full scan on my pc.

    im guessing all symantec av products will have pulse updates?
    like server and business versions?
    if so many mail boxes should be better protected.

    im hoping microsoft can do the same thing for windows 7. aka vista without the bloat and slowness.

    Yes and the updates are sometimes minutes apart. No more waiting for a day to get updates- you get them literally as they are coded every few minutes.
