Re: [HomeSecurity] Norton Internet Security.

I remember how ground breaking Norton Commander was in the Dos days. (or early windows, yeah I am that old ) It was the best utilities I had used, then there was other great Norton Utilities, for me it all changed after Symantec got hold of them. I tried a couple of the AV products over time, but I stopped even paying attention several years ago.

I remember those days too. That's when I started using Norton and like you I stopped using it until 360 came out a few years back. Been using it ever since and it just keeps getting better.
It has a lot of features and has a very light foot print that uses very few resources.
I was really glad when Comcast picked it up and gave it to us free, saved me about $50.00 a year.

My favorite was Central Point's PC Tools! Now that was great DOS utilities! Or Copy2PC which could copy even the "protected" Lotus 1-2-3 floppies!

To get back on topic I've quit installing Norton as I was always having to go to a website and enter a PIN number every few weeks on my PCs so I've quit using when I updated my PCs to Windows 8.

Yeah, PC Tools was the greatest. I still have some Central Point 3.5" install disks.

I might have to give it a try on one of my machines and see. I have one that is not "mission critical" so no biggy if I have to take it back of... Thanks for the update...
