Norton 360

I was about to upgrade to Norton 360.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

My installed Norton IS 2007 warned me that the subscription will soon expire, and I eventually landed on a page that offered the choice of either renewing the existing product, or upgrading to Norton 360.

Sounds good. Imagine, Norton 360 is like NIS 2007 plus spyware protection.

Before going ahead with the upgrade, I decided to search Google for potential problems and found Who Killed My Computer (Part 2).

Lots of discouraging comments and horror stories about Norton. Here's one ray of hope, though:

I had some serious problems and a difficult time with Symantec support on Norton 360 until I learned that their programmers coded the product to assume that your TMP and TEMP variables were always pointing to c:\Windows\TEMP. Once that was solved, the product has been running perfectly on a Vista Business laptop, an XP Home laptop and an XP Pro Desktop.

To be fair, once that problem was eliminated, it has run flawlessly and has not been obtrusive or apparently heavy in use of system resources.

Will continue researching on this before deciding if I'll push through with the upgrade, or shift to AVG Antivirus, Trend, or Kaspersky.
