    It's a software suite containig a firewall, norton antivirus and norton antispam.

    Like all norton products it's effective (even if it lacks a bit in "fine" tweaking) but it's a bit heavy on resources

    Just a word of advice. If you already have let's say Norton Anti-virus and install the suite, it may mess up. It caused my old Norton to not load up properly, and you know how hard it is to uninstall an antivirus. I had to reformat my harddrive.

    But if you don't already have any of the suit's programs installed, there should be no problem
    I miss the days of random nut '03
    Click for more activation options, then activate by telephone. Run the keygen.
    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)

    Yeah that happened to me. Norton is a bitch when it comes to overwriting/uninstalling.

    Yes, exactly. Symantec Interent Security Corporate is a little more agressive, and uses less system rescources. But I still use Norton because I dont feel like going through crap uninstalling it.

    Don't think I ever had a problem ,uninstalling a program I no longer wanted! Norton or not. Uninstall using add/remove, then run a good regcleaner . Simple really, people forget Norton or Symantec is three programs combined. Liveupdate , Livereg And the main program like Antivirus or System works .etc. I uninstall the main one then the others . And I'v never met a Regcleaner I did n't like . But for some there are tools . Like this http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT...01090510510636

    This is an entirely different ballgame from the typical BS that the Norton Suites deliver on. Far superior, IMO.

    NIS is plagued not only by the burden on your system's resources, but also with those less notable features such as "content control" and "password management" and so forth... Nothing that really makes a huge impact but these are features that typically the average joe really would not give two rat-shits about unless they were sharing a system with young surfers not as educated in "netiquette". Nice for families, but if you are a lone surfer who does not have time to go through the extra lagging and motions that the suite will put you through, then definitely stick with SCS v2.
