    I mean wow!. For the Norman Internet Control Plus, it is over $120.00 just for one year. Does this product really sell. I know their detection is mediocre, but I can figure this one out. I know I must be missing something. And does it even allow you to pre-schedule scans.

    Perhaps they focus on company or enterprise solutions, or supplying their internet/virus control with(can't find the word)computers like fujitsu etc.

    Probably because like Sophos and Authentium, they are more geared towards the Corporate and Enterprise environment.

    So any Home versions are not generally competitively priced; they make the big bucks elsewhere.

    No, Norman Internet Control Plus costs $121 for one year. Right now they're running a promotion so its $121 for 3 users, but usually its just for one user.

    NVC Plus prices are as follows:

    1 year = 46.97$
    2 years = 68.32$
    3 years = 92.52$

    and the Euro prices are:

    1 year: 33.00
    2 year: 48.00
    3 year: 65.00

    Somehow I feel the Euro prices are a bit lower....

    For what I've seen in Norway (for roughly everything but software, at least), it looks like it's simply norvegian prices... :rolleyes:
