    Symantec has quietly raised renewal prices for its Norton antivirus and other products, a move some see as a parting shot before Microsoft enters the consumer security fray next year.

    On Monday, the security software giant raised the prices Norton users pay for another year of updates to their installed products by as much as 33 percent. The updates include traditional virus signatures and product enhancements, which are a new feature and part of Symantec's move to a subscription model.

    NAV was already out of my pocket's reach *sigh*.....I found the older renewal prices a bit high too....:(

    NAV is a nice product, but Symantec has strange marketing schemes.....

    Hate the prices and do not care much for the product.

    Why renew when you can buy it for this. And personally I like the product.

    I used to run NAV [still have the NIS firewall which I like, and I dont renew the subs. ], but didnt like NAV's bloat and the support was cr*p. Now I use Avast home, the price of which couldnt be cheaper!
