    No, Norton is NOT 500MB. Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 is, as i stated earlier in this thread.;)

    Yeah, it is... SAV CE (Symantec AV Corporate Edition) used to be a nice AV product until ~v9 inclusive. With v10 it jumped on the slow bloated junk track and SEP 11 (which is v10 follow-up) is a huge disaster wrt both quality assurance and performance. You still get SAV CE 10 licenses with and can downgrade at any time, which speaks volumes about vendors confidence in this product.

    Kaspersky, Eset and a few others let you do the same thing as Norton and there perfectly good products. just because you can use the older version don't mean its crap. many people use the other versions because of Aging hardware. or simply cant takes the design of the new one. (to set in there ways)

    the only thing I can say in Norton's defence honestly is it dont seem to matter what people here or any other fourm think they have there hands to deep in the share of the market to really lose any ground (in the corpate sence) kind of like Mircosoft. they can release a crap fully bugged OS and people just deal with it. and hope for better down the line lol.

    Actually, it speaks more of having an understand of the corporate market. No IT Manager is going to release a Dot-Zero product to the network if they can avoid it, nor are they going to get budget to upgrade unless there is a compelling reason to do so.

    If SAV CE 10 is working fine, why go through the work to upgrade your corporation?

    Same applies to any software package rolled out to the full organization: Operating Systems, Office Software, etc.

    So, now are these tests accurate?

    Hmm, I wonder if that is the AV my college runs. It's very lightweight, and has caught just about everything I've noticed (infected USB's, script kiddies, etc...).

    AFAIK it's a very stable AV suite. Runs on 40+ computers on my work with no hiccups what so ever and kept them free for malware.

    I could never get it uninstalled easily- but perhaps that has changed?

    Sorry for the off-topic:
    You can easily uninstall BitDefender by first right clicking on the red BitDefender icon near the system tray and press on exit. Afterwards download and run this uninstall tool. I never had issues in the past when this tool didn't exist to remove BitDefender. The only thing that was left were some registry entries.

    BD seems to enjoy a good detection rate in almost all tests.
    They scored well in VirusInfo,VB100,AV-Comparitives, etc. And are consistently in the top tier of late.

    Sure it may not be the best, but they are definitely in contention for the job.:thumb:

    Maybe that's because they are improving ....
    I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.
