Just like all the top selling anti-virus software being reviewed, more advanced options are only available thru higher priced versions or add-ons. Norton however, still comes pricier compared to the other anti-virus software in our list. On the good side, Norton does bring solid value for your money with excellent protection, trouble free surfing and a whole lot of features designed to keep you out of trouble.  The ability to use these anti-virus software on three computers could also offset some of the initial costs of installing the software.

When Norton was Norton and not part of Symantec you couldn't get a better product. Now it's taken what ,20yrs to get back to that

St. Petersburg, Florida
I was having computer issues so I took my computer to a tech who found 43 virus's on my computer. A couple viruses were extremely dangerous and were the root cause of my computer issues. I was shocked because I purchased Norton software to protect my computer after reading so many positive reviews. As it turns out, most computers he works on has Norton and/or Kaspersky software and he is constantly finding viruses on. I called Norton to get a refund and was told I was passed the refund period. I will never trust Norton.

I've had Norton for all my security systems at work and at home. They always do a good job at protecting my computer and it's at a reasonable price. Never had any problems with them. Would continue to use them in the future.
