    Norton 360 is a much improved product over previous editions... cleaned up, tightened up. Still, I would recommend others over it.

    I'm using Norton 360 beta, and I like it... The backup utility works well. The scans are fast and the updates are easy. You can customize all aspects too

    Hmm

    Is it still a resource hog as other editions ? Does it actually do anything about the virus it detects other than telling you "it can not be deleted" ?

    I used NAV 2005 for years, I was not terribly impressed with it as far as you should be with a AV that is sappost to protect your system, it just didnt catch everything and it did not even remove 100% of the stuff it found. Didnt see it being much of a system hog as 2003-04-06 editions, probably the only reason I kept it around. Basically I take better precautions as a user to not get infected and I think smart computing is a better defense against virus than an AV. However it is nice to you have a program that will fix the problem right the first time. That is why I switced to AVG Free. Detects and destoys efficiently :D

    But if Norton smooths things up and gives a more effective product then I would concider "paying them" for a service again.

    JimShady23,
    Norton 360 is still in the Beta stage. The retail version should be released in early March. I want to say that it is not the resource hog Norton is known for, but at this point I can't really say. I will get a $30 discount on the released version, but I don't know the total cost yet. No antivirus/malware protection is 100% effective
