Norton 360 or Internet Security?

    Hello all.

    Wich of those two do you recomend? I know Norton Internet Security has more
    options of configuration, Norton 360 does not allow you to modify
    anti-virus, for example, you can't verify a single file or a folder. But
    the anti virus is there, and it promises to verify everything, a pen drive,
    for example.

    My question: Is Norton 360 as reliable as Norton Internet Security?

    Thanks in advance.

    Dreamer.

    Neither. Norton and McAfee security products are dreadful. Recommended
    antivirus programs are NOD32, Kaspersky, or even Avast if you want a
    free one. The XP SP2 built-in firewall is adequate for most people.

    additional

    visit this site
    http://www.windowsmarketplace.com
    in search type Anti-virus it would give you option to choose among the list
    and look out for the best rating other users provided

    Actually, unless Windows Marketplace has seriously cleaned up their act
    and are no longer listing known rogue spyware programs and the like,
    that would not be good advice for the OP. Even if Marketplace is better
    now that only gives the OP more choices. I would not look to that venue
    for recommendations. The OP posted to the correct place.

    Addendum: I just took a look at the antivirus/security listings at
    Windows Marketplace and they are a mix of great and awful programs with
    no way for an end user to tell the difference (on the pages were I
    looked, all have the same "star" rating). I understand that you need to
    tout Microsoft products and services, but I certainly wouldn't recommend
    Windows Marketplace as a solution to the OP's question.

    I was opting for him/her to take a glance at a site where the top ratings can
    be seen for AV is shown. Also site listings for the product both serve
    economic and product feature interest for the customers... give them a
    choice.

    At the Top List sorted by Ratings is Trend Micro and Kaspersky... i dont know
    what site you dropped by sir, windowsmarketplace is a neutral site on such
    matters my point exactly is for them to have an overview of what is available
    - to continue not limit the scope of options.

    Milo,

    I believe Malke would be referred to as Madam or Ma'am, not
    as Sir.

    In context of your posted usage, however, the use of any
    honorific would seem to be sarcastically derisive - and
    unwarrantedly so...

    My apologies on such matter if I mistook the gender and if I came blunt ... I
    was just trying to make a point.

    There is no comparison between two products.2010 is just an anti-virus tools and protect against malware. Whereas 360 is the tool for complete PC care. for viruses, backing up the PC, etc . Choose what your need is your PC specifications.My experience says to use Norton 360.

    Norton 360 has more features then the Norton Internet Security 2010, so it's up to you if the 360 is about the same price, then that, just be prepared to buy computer programs on the Internet. The best and safest to buy any computer software program from the storage, if there are problems with the product, you can always go back to exchange or return, depending on store policy.

    Norton 3604.0 version of the solution to the whole system of protection and coverage. Norton 360 is a powerful and reliable protection against all Internet threats and network intrusions.

    Software features standard anti-virus software that protects against viruses and immensely destructive Trojan horse. Norton is super simple user interface makes protecting your computer against these threats, a walk in the park.

    Norton 360 is mercifully light on system resources; it's intuitive, covers most of the bases that a comprehensive security-and-performance tool should, and includes free online storage.

    I also use Norton. It seems good but had issues on the first few days. I just had it uninstalled and reinstalled again. Better safe than sorry.
