What a terrible way to get bad software. It won't be free when the year runs out. And of course you will pay every day because of the system slow down likely to occur with the bloatware called Norton Internet Security.

I hate it when people who don't know what they're talking about come to a forum and speak as if they have true knowledge about a subject.

That person would be you.

I have NIS installed on three laptops and two desktops. No bloat, no slowing down of the system. In fact, we never know when it's running.

If you don't know what you're talking about you should just be quiet.

Norton Internet Security is bloatware. It has many more features than anyone requires on their PC.

The five computers in my house run so much better after I made an effort to remove all Norton products from them. I no longer have registry damage, never have LiveUpdate quit working, never have to reinstall Norton.

And a rebate offer from Norton is just a way to get you on it now for free so you have to pay the renewal one year from now when the subscription expires.

I have to agree with this post. The individual has no idea what they are talking about.

As Tek_Freek indicated, you aren't well versed in this area. Since the complete code rewrite of NIS, it's fairly lean. Earlier versions were bloated.

As a reminder, those who have Comcast as their ISP (Internet Service Provider), you can get Norton Internet Security free through them.

Sorry Hoff, Tek & Ten (that sounds like it could be an action movie) are correct in stating you have no idea what you're talking about. I was a Norton nay sayer for years after their reputation tanked (long before that actually), it is not the product it used to be. I do however disable the system tune up schedules, if it needs tuning I'll do it myself thanks.

Agreed. I spent years telling people to avoid Norton products of any kind like the plague.

Then in 2009 I was looking for a replacement for my third or fourth piece of crap AV program and found Norton at the top of a surprising number of lists, so I tried it.

And I've been using it ever since. I am, and have been, extremely satisfied with it.

As for this:

Well, duh! Of course it's only free for a year and you are not required to renew if you don't want to. What a silly statement that was. Besides there will probably be a similar offer next year so you can get it free or for next to nothing. It's free for a year! Why is that a bad thing?

BTW, I never take the auto-update from Symantec. I search for the best deals and order it on CD. When you install it asks for the product key and automatically updates.

Or a legal firm.
