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.

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.
