Question about Symantec Norton 360 for PC (037648318846)

5 Answers

Is norton 360 still incompatible with vista home premium?

I read that Norton 360 and Vista were incompatible. I'm currently running Norton NIS without incident but was given a copy of 360 as a gift. Have the glitches been corrected?

thanks in advance...

    I'm not trying to cause a conflict, just trying to help you make a more informed decision. Norton is still a troublesome program where viruses can actually build themselves (or rebuild) themselves inside the designated quarantine folder. On top of that, Norton 360 uses a huge amount of system resources (compared to other total-security packages) and processes to do something simple. This equates to a slower system which, in some sense of the word, is not really protected.

    As a bonus, once you install Norton, you can't really get rid of it. As a matter of fact, Symantec made a tool that uninstalls Norton for you since a lot of the time Uninstallers aren't included in Norton installs or the uninstaller is faulty. Yes, you can uninstall it. However traces remain and will stay there until the Hard-Drive is formatted (I'm not suggesting you format your hard-drive unless you want to reinstall windows).

    If you want my suggestion on what to get for PC security, go for ESET's NOD32 Antivirus or Smart Security. They don't use near as much system resources as Norton, and they do a MUCH better job defending your system.

    Have a safe time in Binary-World. ;-)

I bought a Norton 360 multidevice from costco and the product key is not functioning what should I do


make sure you do not have too many devices with the norton install. multidevice means you can put it on 'so' many devices-a number. usually only 1 pc. but sometimes 3 or more. if you are trying to install on a device when all the installs are gone, then it won't work until you uninstall one of the norton installs on another device. it knows how many of a particular norton product is installed. only that number of installs is allowed-whatever the multi-install number was?
that may be it...

You will need to cancel your Norton subscription and use one of their products that is suitable for Vista. May I suggest that you purchase Norton Internet security 2009 for a single payment of about 70 dollars.
